I think the above was really mean spirited. Nothing you said there helped the OP, it just put her down. I get you disagree with her position, but geez...
I think the OP was perhaps interpreting the quote from D_McG as her implying she was mentally ill. I can see that.
I am feeling for the OP right now. She came her for help / advice, and she just seems to be getting slammed. I'm not saying that I agree or disagree with anyone's position. She came here genuinely looking for help, but some of you are being really harsh. Saying things to her like "are you teaching your children this nonsense" is just so unnecessary. Why don't those of you who feel the need to be mean just stick to what she asked for and help explain your point of view without reaming her in the process. Threads like these make me think twice about coming here for support on something I feel vulnerable about.
Honestly it makes me very angry to read things like the OP posted. I think it's a really really shitty way to act. Incredibly arrogant and condescending to some poor young mother who is doing the best she can. I'm not going to be all 'hugs mama!' at such blatant ignorance/arrogance.
I get it makes you angry. But it doesn't make it right to be mean. It's also not helping her to see your POV. It just polarizes things and makes ppl feel yucky. The OP wanted help and advice on how to deal with her feelings and her situation. Do you think you were helping her?
