Wow. So parents passing on beliefs to their children is child abuse. But forcibly stripping away their beliefs isn't?
I'm not talking about stripping away their beliefs. Only that indoctrinating children into lies is sick and wrong. If the adults choose to believe in them, I'm not saying they should be stopped if they keep them for themselves.
Taking away something that brings meaning and purpose to people's lives is the true abuse.
Ah, the purpose card. I might find purpose in fooling myself to believe clouds are magic gnomes that grant me wishes if I pray to them. But it doesn't make it true no matter how much purpose I manage to find in fooling myself. Ultimately, religion is harmful to the world, no matter how much meaning some people find in it or not.
And I don't care how highly you think of your education system, every school has some form of propaganda. Anything run by the state will by nature be biased towards the state. I'm not advocating we get rid of state run schools, but to act like what they teach is 100% objective is laughable.
I don't act like they're 100% objective, they're not. Just saying your claim about the national propaganda is totally detached from the reality of millions of people who experience state-run education every day in real life.
Typical that you single out Christianity first and foremost. What about Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and so forth? Are they not allowed to give their kids religious teachings either?
Some teachings are more harmful than others. Therefore I picked a belief that can obviously be terrifying to small children, who don't understand hell isn't real but could feel they're actually being threatened with hellfire. Teaching kids things like that is wrong, and the same goes for stuff like the universe being 6000 years old and other blatant lies like that. One might discuss topics with kids topics such as if deities exist without doing harm, by not threatening them and not pretending to know they exist when there's no evidence for it, but many parts within christianity, islam etc. are rotten, blatantly false and harmful to indoctrinate children in.
You are a tyrant. You talk about "Rights" and people being "Abused" but you advocate for violation of the most basic rights.
For centuries with christianity, islam,..., millions of christians/islamists stood happy while people were stoned, burned, hanged, for witchcraft, refusing to believe in myths, agreeing to have sex while not in a relationship or for teaching things the church felt threatened their volatile worldview. Rights never existed in these religions, rights came to be because society became secularized and grew beyond the primitive mentality that can only judge right from wrong by blindly reciting verses from a book. The irony is you need not look further than the bible to find the very definition of tyranny and violation of rights.http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/inj/long.htmlhttp://skepticsannotatedbible.com/cruelty/long.html
It shouldn't be hard to see why anyone who cares about rights cares about freeing the world from such ideas.
