PlasmaBorneElectric's comment, August 17, 2012 10:21 AM
I'm 60 and when I started school as a young boy I was forced to sit down and STFU about my atheism. It was bad enough dealing with the other children but at age 6 I had the Teachers, Principal and the parents of the PTA lined up against my right to be free from indoctrination into religion. It as suppose to be a secular public school where a state religion was not our nation's policy yet here I was, demonized, and told to bow my head. Christianity goes on about love of children but at six years old I was only shown authoritative domination. Six years old. InF'ncredible.

I will never forget the true meaning of Christian love. They'll love your cowering, conforming and complying with their authoritative dominionist doctrine.
