I come from a christian family, and my parents are very religious. Like most parents who have a strong opinion about their particular god, they've decided to force their beliefs onto me and my siblings. Luckily, I've grown out of it, but my young siblings (aged 6 and 10) are even more sheltered than I ever was, are forced to go to church/sunday school nearly every week, and are even going to a christian school. It's fucked up to hear my little sister talking about how she hates anybody who doesn't love Jesus. If I bring up religion to my parents (especially around my brother and sister) they respond with nothing but anger and my mom says she's "just doing what's best for them" in her heart. I don't live at home anymore so I don't know what to do, or if there is anything I can do. I don't want them to grow up only to realize late in their lives that it was all bullshit. I know there really isn't an easy way to go about this and that in the end it's their choice what they grow up to believe, but I have a feeling that until they're out on their own they won't really have a choice. My fucking ignorant parents can't see that all I am is a concerned brother.

Any thoughts, ideas, or similar experiences? What are your opinions on religious indoctrination?


Get them a copy of The Magic of Reality by Richard Dawkins.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
