Do you think Brain washing Children into religion is Okay?

I was thinking about after watching this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3mDLsyn6ns and this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RNfL6IVWCE

Well, tell me your thoughts, Imo. I think we should let them pick their own religion when they're old enough to understand ect.

If Judeo-Christian God exists, he creates and destroys indiscriminately. He loves and hates all. That's pretty badass

Telling children if they don't act a certain way, God will send em to hell, force them to accept jesus or be kicked out of the house, No playing video games, TV, "Dancing in the flesh" w/e that is, No music, Just reading the Bible :).

I suppose it would depend on the extremity to which it went. I dont have a problem with parents discussing their religion with their children or with raising their kids according to their moral convictions. But a (very) few parents do take it to an unhealthy extreme.

What about telling children if they don't act a certain way, God will send em to hell, force them to accept jesus or be kicked out of the house, No playing video games, TV, "Dancing in the flesh" w/e that is, Just reading the Bible :).

But music is allowed? Is that still "brain washing"?

Teaching your kids what you know is right is not = brainwashing.

Lemme ask you- do you think brainwashing your kids with atheism is ok? I dont. I want my kids to go to heaven.

Think about that question for a little bit.

What do you mean "Who knows?" You know! You're the one who just defined what brainwashing is!

Actually I think it counts as brainwashing regardless of your intention or the validity of the information.

Live long, be happy, and try to ensure those around you do as well.

I'm not against religion. I'm against all bad ideas, held for bad reasons, prompting bad behavior.
