I am finding the chasm between my beliefs and my husband’s growing wider and wider. We went through about a one week period several months ago when we were on the same page about the LDS church (after presenting him with a lot of evidence), but then he went back to it full force – even more than before.
It seems as if we are opposed on every subject.
My husband’s views:
TBM (True Believing Mormon), staunch Republican, conservative, against gay marriage and homosexuality in general (feels their agenda is to take away religious freedom and indoctrinate our children), very skeptical of science (does not believe in evolution or man-made global warming), however supernatural/spiritual stories – whether spoken or in scripture- need no proof (they are always true), viewing pornography is not damaging/hurting anyone (including the young girls involved) but it is wrong only because the church says so, daycare is evil, any one who speaks against the church has an evil agenda.
We are getting to the point where I don’t even want to speak to him because he seems so irrational to me. I have gotten to the point where I avoid conversations and then when I disagree I just nod my head and say “uh huh” just to avoid another argument.
I also attend church with him to support him, but he doesn’t feel he needs to support me in anything.
It would be fine if I had some other people to talk to that think like me, but I don’t. I will write more about that tomorrow.
