It’s tough enough being 6, what with all those great things to believe in – dragons, Easter bunnies, Santa, Superheroes … but kids being kids, if you are different and decide not to believe, then YOU are DIFFERENT… and you’ll be picked on by the other kids… your friends… because THEY’VE already been successfully hooked by their teachers, or have succumbed to the pressure of their school friends.
This was touched on in HEY PREACHER! – but at the time I did not click as to the peer pressure from kids who follow blindly…
This is how social brainwashing works. This is kids who don’t understand, pushing other kids into something they don’t understand…. and anywhere outside of religion, this would cause an uproar as BULLYING.
I’m all for people learning about religions, but this is wrong.
