I do not agree that teaching a child religion or spirituality is necessarily equal to child abuse.
However, I would agree that some of the things that could be taught about that religion are damaging and abusive.
I wouldn’t tattoo “Believe or Burn” on my babies because it is permanent. What if one day they change their minds?
(Although there was a video going around a couple of weeks ago of a mother tattooing her baby.)
It can be the same intellectually! Do we allow our children to change and make up their own minds?
How healthy is it to inflict scary, fearful, and therefore damaging beliefs on our children?
I know a lot of people, including myself, who have taken years and years to have these scary tattoos removed from their minds. It can be very difficult, quite painful, and rather expensive.
