Everyone is not on board with that lifestyle, nor do they have to be. Get over it--your sister made her choice, and your parents responded to her choice accordingly. They stuck to their guns/principles. So now the ball is in your court: If you choose to have contact with your sister, that's on you. Live your life and stay in your lane. You have no business acting like you have veto power over anybody's choices in life.

You should mind your own life and your own business you cannot live change life because of the way others choose to live theirs. Hate is hate no matter who you choose to hate or who the others choose to hate it does not seem to me like your parents hate your sister but it is clear they do not like the way she choose to live her life and that is their prerogative and she choose to remove her ring before she visits them as respect for their wish so don’t try make yourself the enforcer by trying to choose one side or the other it is good that you found out the way you did and unfortunate situation that many of us face in modern day society just hope things workout for the best no matter which way that is❤️‍🩹
