That wasn't you who posted that, Tide.<quoted text>
I used to post, when I first arrived on Topix, that I thought indoctrinating children into a religion was child abuse. While I haven't changed my mind about that, I haven't brought it up in a long time either.
Instead of limiting that to children, I'd like to expand it to include anyone who doesn't have the ability to rationally evaluate claims. I can just call that unethical behavior instead of child abuse. If we had truth in advertising for religions, they could not survive. If people were trained in rational skepticism prior to adopting religious beliefs, religion could not survive. People have to be tricked, manipulated, lied to, and preyed upon when they are at their weakest, in order to adopt most religious beliefs.
It really doesn't take much looking to see how much damage these cons inflict on people. Pisses me off.
