My parents are Jehovah’s witnesses. The religion is their life and it is put before family, love, and other things in life. To be clear, the religion, itself, is not wrong or corrupt. It has many good values that I personally believe in, but some aspects can be taken in a very extremist manner and some do.
Unfortunately, to play a game where you ‘worship’ even fake deities is considered heretical and would be enough of an excuse to cast me out. All forms of magic, even make believe or otherwise, is typically associated with the Occult or pagan origins even if it really isn’t. My parents are religious to the point of fanaticism. I’ve likened it to cultism before but it’s not quite that dark. I wasn’t attempting to seek sympathy with my post, but the amount of response I’ve gotten in both private messages and here is overwhelming. I honestly didn’t expect that kind of response and I’m a bit moved by it and by how so many people of this community are so understanding and caring. Thank you to everyone for the kind and encouraging words. It’s been pretty hard the last few weeks especially, so I really appreciated it.
