I don't claim any religion is right or wrong, merely that should it prove to be then warning of foretold consequences should not be labeled as abusive any more than warning of global warming's possible consequences(which happens at the education institutions around the world) should be considered abuse.
Hi. Thanks for that friendly and sincere welcome, TC.

Seriously, I just sensed we were looking to get bogged down...yet again...in the perenial age old LF spat about the existence of god, hence why I said tangential.

When you say positive moral values which bible are you referring to? If (for example) you think what the old testament was proposing was good moral values then i'd strongly disagree. But I keep forgetting that the church can review their "Papal infallibility" and change their views to keep up with society whenever it suits them.

@ Topic: Yes, it is child abuse. If you're religious the decent thing to do would be to not poison your childs mind.
Are you aware that many wars were started by ambitious individuals who cared little for religion, and used it merely as an excuse to get what they wanted? And what is this about warning children about hell being child abuse? If I remember, a few years ago I was taught about the supposed "stranger danger", is that child abuse too?

It can be scientifically proven that the number of strangers you talk to as a child has a direct correlation with your chances of getting abducted and sold off into the flesh trade, or worse. Hell, not so much.

I have no problem with children growing up with religion.(Apart from baptism at birth). When people enter the adolescent stage of their lives they begin to think more critically about these sorts of things anyway. Some turn it away and some stick by it. It makes no difference in my eyes.

It most certainly makes a difference if the child is sent to a religious indoctrination center that is thinly disguised as a psychiatric facility and deliberately brainwashed into questioning their own sanity simply because they've begun to doubt the existence of the almighty sky fairy.
