    Is religious indoctrination child abuse?

    Do you think it is?
    I just read an online article about it, and whoever wrote it certainly makes it seem like it is. For an adult, most religions are seen as absurd, *transparently so* as the article says, while children are very susceptible to things like this.
    "It doesn't sound like far fetched nonsense to children".

    Well here let me point this out:

    1. Post a link.

    2. You must be brain dead.

    There really isn't much to discuss besides it just being stupid to say so. Whats next, an atheist complaining about santa?

    Fine
    Interesting point of view. Imo religion != santa - eventually people tell you santa isn't real, but nobody tells them religion isn't /

    You know, it all depends on how hard the persons trying to make you believe in a religion.... If some person is just telling a kid about a religion and why they believe, then no, unless something else is said like what the god of said religion might do to the child (hurt, cause horrible situations).

    But, if it's one of those times where said person becomes physically / mentally abuse (as in they start hurtin the child for not believing, or threating them), then obviously it becomes child abuse. Like I said, it all depends on how hard the persons pushes the child towards the religion. Well.... Alteast thats imho.

    Thats really just child abuse in general. I mean yeah it involves religion, but in the end its just straight child abuse.


    Teaching your kid religion can't be considered abuse on any level, as it is a part of culture.

    On a side note, dear me, is that an atheist ego-boosting website?

    Man and i thought Christian websites were pathetic.

    Strip it down to its core points, it actually has some truth to it (more towards the orthodox or, even more so to extremists). But it's more or less padded out.

    Meh, on certain topics i find points i agree on, or at least see a viewpoint that has some logic to it.


    But for the main part, anything involving atheism is just slander on religion, some random part on his changing views(which might i add, change or need to be updated quite a lot.), and generally blaming religion for almost everything.

    In fact, he's made a ton of walls saying basically the same things:

    1. Its religion's fault.
    2. I'm an atheist because _________(lots of those)
    3. Sarcastic response as if he's judging a movie or something. Idk, its kinda wierd because i read like 4-5 of them, and they all sound pretty much the same.
    4. Modern world arguments for some weird stereotype as religion always being 3rd world.
