276 Words2 Pages
In the memoir The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, the main character Jeannette goes through a collision of culture by the way her parents disagree about their religious beliefs. The difference between the two parents are shown when Jeannette says “Church was particularly excruciating when Dad came along. Dad had been raised a Baptist, but he didn’t like religion and didn’t believe in God. He believed in science and reason, he said, not superstition and voodoo. But Mom had refused to have children unless Dad agreed to raise them as Catholics and to attend church himself on holy days of obligation”. Growing up with parents who had complete opposite religious beliefs would be confusing, especially for Jeanette 's situation growing up with no stability.
