Hello, family . I was chatting with my mother recently. Our conversation went sour when she told me she wanted to have my daughter "blessed" at her local Christian church. This is something I wouldn't do to my own daughter based upon my own beliefs. At one point she got to mentioning how little girls were being kidnapped, hurt on the daily, and "threatened" to have my daughter baptized to save her. No disrespect to the believers of the Christian faith, but I believe this process let's Blacks believe there is not a care in the world, "long az I gots Jesus". I am the first person to break this cycle in my family, not from having atheist feelings, but I gather these feelings based on the necessity of people being self-sufficient, and responsible for one's own actions, not by relying on religion. I would like for my mother to be in her grand-daughters life, but I can't stand the fact that she threatened to go there against my wishes. What y'all think? What would y'all do. I have an idea as to what to do, but need a little advice. Should a grand-parent have a right to put their grandchildren through such a ritual?, let alone control of their grandchildren?
