Considering posting this on my FB wall...
I'm feeling contentious these days.

Usually I'm not overtly aggressive on my FB page, but after seeing Seth's "Burn Victims" video, I'm pissed that people actually subject children to this. I'm considering posting this on my page:

"At what age is it best to introduce children to the concept of hell?

A) toddler/preschool

B) age 5-8

C) age 9-12

D) age 13 and up

E) not till they're 18

F) depends on the child

G) never"

When I've given time for enough responses, I'll post a link to Seth's video and ask if they still feel the same. Chances are, once people actually *think* about my question, they'll hem and haw and have a hard time answering. They'll define "hell" their own way to make it less gruesome, etc.


What's holding me back right now is that to date I haven't been so in-your-face about religious beliefs, and the humanist side of me wants community, connection, peace, goodwill, understanding....but isn't part of humanism doing the hard work of exposing crimes against humanity? And isn't exposing kids to hell, especially to advance a religious agenda, a trillion times more harmful than offending some grown-ups by calling it out? I do have some family on FB, Mom included....

Anyway, whether I opt to do this or not, I think it would be a neat little experiment for anyone who's willing to try it. Maybe if anyone else does this, we can all post our results here?

I applaud your zeal but it wont do any good. IF they watch the video, they will simply dance around their answers and flip flop more than Al Gore or Mitt Romney.
I find NOTHING gets accomplished on facebook.

But it's a forum within which you have almost zero anonymity. Why not choose a nice Mormon or Christian forum instead? Or, better yet, get them each alone. I would think them much more pliable when cornered without their fellow congregants to support them.

Y'know, I could try a parenting group, too....it should have a mix of belief systems (predominantly Christian, no doubt) and they won't immediately suspect me of any agenda....

I used to have a lot of fun pissing people off on WhatToExpect.com whilst I was pregnant.
