I am a young teenager who is quite intelligent but I think that children should be told to follow the religion of their parents and they should look to them for advise. However I don't think that a particular religion should be forced on someone.
@TBR I get the question but seeing as I agree with you I feel no responsibility to answer it lol. Also @ Tonius5 Many kids are prevented from practicing other religions by their parents. I myself was forced to go to church for the duration of my childhood despite my lack of belief in god.
Tonius you can be prevented. If you choose to be a muslim people can prevent you from worshiping or preying and doing the other religious practices associated with other religions. Or if you are a Christian your parents could forbid you from going to church or from preying ect.
I am an atheist who was forced to go to church and no it did not make me a Christian. It made me feel hated. It made me feel like there was something wrong with me. It made me feel like if I sat there more maybe I could change. It made me feel awful. No person should be forced to endure something that makes them feel unsafe or uncomfortable and being forced to be religious by your parents even if you aren't can be as harmful as forcing your kids to not be gay. It doesn't work and it only causes kids to inflict self harm or just completely shut down.
