Richard Collins of EndHereditaryReligion.com suggests that we consider an international day of protest.
After engaging in thousands of exchanges with parents and some clergy, it is clear to me that perpetrators are in denial that what they are doing is harmful and shrug off all the evidence that indoctrinating kids victimizes anyone. The glaring unethical abuse of children’s religious freedom is incomprehensible to them.Strangely, Collins seems to want to blame this on liberals. Unfortunately, he makes no attempt to support this accusation. It is almost as if he thinks we should simply take his word for it that liberals are at fault. As a proud liberal, I'm puzzled at why Collins would seek to alienate me from this cause without good reason.
I support efforts to help people understand that choosing the religion of their children is abusive and that such choices should be left up to the children when they are old enough to understand their options. This is a meme about which I would think atheists would have much to contribute.
