Childhood Religious Indoctrination is Psychological Abuse

Bix
JustCallMeTarzan

This debate is in response to claims I have been witness to over the internet that passing on religious values to children is akin to psychological abuse. First let me define the term, psychological abuse. The following on-line sources define the term "Psychological Abuse. http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/psychological+abuse http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=8364 http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/109/4/e68 Of particular int...
