[A shorter post today. Working on something longer which I hope to upload tomorrow.]
It has been well over a year since I first took the “Red Pill”, and opened my eyes to the true nature of men and women. During that time I’ve learned a lot, and unlearned a whole lot more. I’ve changed a lot of my life around, and despite being more aware of how dark my future is likely to be, I can confidently say that I’m better off than I was beforehand. However, one thing that I have yet to do is really broach the Red Pill and the subjects around it with my family, especially my parents.
I know that I must at some point, but I keep putting off this confrontation. And a confrontation it will be, because both of my parents are very much invested in what some call “Blue Pill” thinking. Both are also what you could call Churchians, although we Catholics often call them “cafeteria Catholics” instead. Informing them of what I have learned, and the life I intend to live will put me in direct opposition to them. And this is where I am uncertain what to do. I am called to honor my mother and my father (this message is one of the most frequent throughout scripture), and I am not sure how to do that while still introducing them to the Red Pill. It will necessarily require that I point out their hypocrisy, their ignorance and other flaws in their character, if only indirectly. Frankly, I know my parents and I am sure that it will hurt them to some degree. So I hesitate. And yet, I keep in mind these words of Jesus:
34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36 and a man’s foes will be those of his own household. 37 He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; 38 and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it.
So I guess the purpose of this post is to solicit advice for how to explain the “Red Pill” to one’s parents, while still showing them the respect and honor they deserve.
Also, I have been thinking of talking with one of the priests at my parish (the Pastor actually) concerning the Red Pill. He is a very down-to-earth kind of guy, and I suspect probably is already aware of some of it. Plus he never struck me as inclined towards the feminist streak which sadly manifests itself in a lot of priests these days. Does anyone have any advice on how to broach the topic with a pastor/priest? I know that several of my readers have discussed some aspects of the Red Pill with Christian leaders before, so I would like their advice on the matter. I’m asking because I have been thinking of getting involved or creating a ministry for young men at my church, and the Red Pill will be part of it. Which means that I need him to understand and support what I am doing. Any advice here would be appreciated.
