It's not me, it's you.
No guys, it really does happen. My father acted that way towards me when I was growing up. He would get angry with me if I didn't subscribe to his religious beliefs, and I often was punished for having a different opinion or a mind of my own. It was forced on me, I resisted, and suffered mental and physical abuse because of it. My father was very much fire and brimstone. My parents were divorced, and if I ever mentioned well mom says this, or my step dad says that about religion, he would scream at me that they were going to hell, and if I didn't straighten up I was going to go to hell too. I was around age 12 when this particular incident happened, and he would scream at me until I cried.
