I am not close to my Dad's family. He has a cousin that I and my sister played with as children though. We lived in PA and she lived in Mississippi. Her Dad would bring shrimp to our town and sell them..Anyway, she has had a quite tragic life..Sister died in a car accident as a teenager, brother has (as far as I know) disowned her. Her Dad died when she was 13 or so. Her mom died a few years ago.... Now she is openly, proudly gay, doesn't like "fake" Christians (little does she know real Christians don't like them either!), but loves me and my sister and is desperate for family. We only reunited with her recently, none of us had any idea what happened to her after Katrina (her town was hit hard). She has even changed her name from Tina to Logan. She is obviously the "male" in the relationship she is in. There are some pics of her going for surgery I don't know if she is now anatomically a male.

Here is her latest post and my response:

If you cause harm to me or mine...tread softly for a binding will come!

That is a tough situation. I have many family and friends who don't know Christ, and don't understand Christianity at all. (Some of you on my FB have most likely seen some comments that prove this.) I deal with them only when I need to. However, none of them openly "attack" my faith. If they did, I would delete them from my friends. I actually have a cousin who proudly proclaims she is an atheist on her FB page, and I can't stand a lot of what she posts. If she were ever to argue with me, or say something against my faith to me, I would delete her without second thought. But so far, we remain respectful of each others beliefs, so she remains..for now.

She just replied...."I'm very eclectic"

Okay, that's a really weird response ("eclectic")

I agree with Cindy.

I would probably remain 'friends', hope my posts have a positive impact & pray for opportunities to talk. If they started posting offensive stuff on my wall or to my posts I would message them why I was deleting them (lovingly that she's free to have her beliefs but not attack me) & delete them.

My husbands ex-step-father (sils dad) had an 'operation' & it's a difficult ..... culture to deal with :(

I agree with Angie about leaving her as a friend and praying that your posts and interactions can be a blessing to her. I don't have much experience with the gender change operations, but her reply to you on the wiccan post makes it seem like she's kind of seeking something to fill that hole in our hearts that God wants to fill, and i think if you reach out in love, it will be a great light to her.
