Religious Abuse... Damned to Hell

"I read that 59% of Americans believe in hell. (That’s from a 2009 poll by The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. A Fox News poll puts the figure at 74%!)

"It struck me that this is a serious political issue, as well as one of children’s rights, and one that needs to be understood in the light of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD."

This looks like a good one :)  Seems pretty right on.  Apparently there's a movement afoot, incidentally, to have PTSD renamed to "Post Traumatic Stress Injury"--which does the issue much better justice, I think.

Injury, implying externally caused? I agree! There is a lot of information available now and I wonder how the religious right will respond? They have gotten away with their bigotry for long, it is normal. Well, no longer! The gloves come off, as far as I am concerned.
