Standing Up for Her Sister's Faith 🕊️

Our protagonist always tried to respect her cousin's Jehovah's Witness beliefs, even when they didn't align with her own. But when her cousin scolded her for telling her child that her late sister was going to Heaven at the Christian funeral, she couldn't hold back her anger. She told her cousin off and had her removed from the funeral. Years later, the cousin accused her of religious persecution, but she stood her ground, knowing she was one of the few family members who actually respected her cousin's convictions. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💬
