How do you tell an overly religious parent,that some of their views are unreasonable?

Asked By: flexswag 15 hours ago

My mother is so into religion, and it’s not that I’m not just not as crazy about it. Alot of what she says Is close minded and sometimes she uses it out of context. She see’s thing in a very old fashioned way and it’s starting to get in the way of our relationship. There are so many things I want to tell her about my life, as well as talk about her changing her views but she just won’t listen….. I keep getting she’s never gonna change, but honestly if she could just see things from my point of view maybe she could change I just don’t know how to do that, yet.

Good Question? (4)

Almost all parents, religious or non-religious,
are unreasonable, especially
in the eyes of their immature children.
This occurs again and again
generation after generation.
Yes, all parents are old-fashioned, but nowhere
it is told that their children can wisely judge them.
The children should be allowed to seek the truth
independently, but opposing parents is not
the way to truth.
We all need a proper education to make progress.
What is a proper education, that is another question!
