My ex-husband, the Minion's father is a born again, tongue speaking Pentecostal. This is just in the last 10 months. Before that he was a guy that wore leathers, drank beer ( to excess ), spent free time on internet porn sites and watched NASCAR. Of these past behaviors, I'm fairly certain he still watches the cars go around and around.
When he and the Minion speak the conversations lately have centered on church, Bible verses, and saving Minion's 11 year old soul, etc. Tonight he told our son that if he lies or disobeys his parents he will go to Hell.
I assured The Minion that although God, Allah, Buddha or whomever certainly frowns on such behavior, if the "sinner" is truly contrite and says they are sorry, forgiveness happens.
Now, how can I tell my ex-husband to cut the apocalyptic shit and keep his fire and brimstone ravings to himself. Cause it takes every ounce of self control not to speak to that man in a hostile way. Not to mention he thinks the sun shines out of the McCain / Palin ticket's ass.
