i get concerned when children get forced into religion growing up there whole young lives under the gun of a brain washing and controlling sect. how come this is not considered child abuse? filling a young and growing mind not with thoughts of love and happiness but with images of fire and brim stone, being so controlled and thought fear by the very people who the kid looks up to for comport. why does religion get a pass in the child abuse department? how come people to not speak up more ? we tolerate this because it has become some sick norm in our society and it needs to stop. its abuse yes strict religious up bringing is a form a child abuse! story of sodomy ? incest? and murder are things no young mind should ever have to hear. so what are your thoughts? are you a child of a religious up bringing? if so how did it effect you ?
