What I Learned in Church

This amazing video from The Thinking Atheist may help us understand why Richard Dawkins calls religious indoctrination of the young a form of child abuse. Progressive Christians may see this depiction as an exaggeration, and it certainly applies to some faith groups more than others. However, it corresponds very closely to my own childhood experience of indoctrination, and I’ve no doubt millions of others would recognize it as well.
