Definition of INDOCTRINATE<quoted text>That's what indoctrination is... No one is saying your parents held you down and doused you with holy water. Indoctrination can, and usually does describe a more subtle process - going to church , being surrounded by believers, observing devout faith in your loved ones, getting the feeling that dissent wouldn't go over too well with loved ones, etc.
: to instruct especially in fundamentals or rudiments : teach
: to imbue with a usually partisan or sectarian opinion, point of view, or principle
being surrounded by believers and observation of devout faith by no means is indoctrination. Going to church...yeah...that could be considered such...but I don't go to church. I did go a few times as a kid...but it wasn't the norm.
