I’m sorry you’re dealing with that frustration.  🙁  I’m lucky enough not to have anyone in my family with ideas that contrast my basic values…well at least no one that I know of/have routine contact with. 

That being said, i know how sensative I am to what I perceive as discriminatory comments, especially in regards to the LGBTQI community so I FULLY understand your feelings.  And when it comes to individuals with strong religious beliefs that influence their opinions about anything, I think it’s particuarly challenging, because there’s a tendency for individuals to hold as steadfast to those beliefs as would someone with a more accepting perspective.

I think no matter what the belief is, those with extreme perspectives on any side of the spectrum are really challenging to speak to and reason with.  And with those people, it’s best to avoid conversations like that, because all it leads to is heightened frustration on your end.  That whole feeling like you’re talking to a wall thing.

I’d say as much as possible avoid/ignore your uncle’s comments, especially if they’re so upsetting to you.  And take advantage of the ability to delete comments on facebook.  🙂

My personal outlook on facebook is that it is a way for me to keep in cotact with friends and family…I don’t use my status’s as a way to express my political, religous, or personal views. I think that people close to me know how I feel, and I don’t want to offend anyone or have two individuals duking it out over my page. What you put on your page is your choice, but when you put things that people are definitely going to have an opinion about, expect some drama to come with it.

Sorry you have to deal with this. Unfortunately I’ve had to censor myself on just about anything political due to having a few family members who are super super conservative/religious. And I’m not saying there is anything wrong with that but they take it to the extreme. They go so far as to tell me I’m going to hell and that they’ll pray for me. Gee thanks.
