We are not messed up. We just have a clearer, more personal understanding of the oppressive nature of religion. We must lead the backlash against our non-thinking heritage.

Thank sensible people for seeing the need for this forum. I am still struggling with personality disorders brought on by my parents' emotional neglect and abuse.

Physical abuse, a TON of mental abuse, and good old fashioned medical neglect in the name of gawd.

I'm with you guys. It's been exactly 30 years since I last set foot in my church, and I've been experiencing a little PTS, after all this time. Just found out that fellow classmates have this darkness and hatred towards the school too. Not just the beatings, but the psychological stuff, too.

I think there's a tradition in my old religion of ritualized sexualized corporal punishment/humiliation. There's a lot of messed-up people because of it.

I think it was because he is fixin to go to court and be locked up for a long time. Also to tell me he was disappointed for me not sticking by him on this.

Why would he write the letter for you? Does he want your forgiveness?

I am a bundle of nerves right now. I just received an e-mail from my half-brother talking how he's given his life back to the lord, and he has found forgiveness. What makes this so hard to stomach, this was a letter he had sent to his friend from jail for her to email me. He has admitted to 8+counts of child molesting. He grew up in a strict xian home. I find it disturbing that he can do these things to children ask for forgive ness and be forgiven in the xian church. I feel that a god that would stand back and watch this happen to a child is a sick fuck whom I want no part of!

I got slapped around by my Baptist preacher dad quite a bit... usually with a scripture soundtrack.
Literally interpretations of the bible can be dangerous for kids... for realses.

End Hereditary Religion is an initiative to stop the practice of indoctrinating children in the tenets and practices of their parents (or guardians) religion. As such this initiative is not against organized religion per se, just the age old practice of preying on vulnerable children. No one doubts that parents who cooperate with the indoctrination of children and indeed take part in this practice, believe they are acting correctly. But on closer inspection parents and faith communities have much to gain by consigning children at a very early age, before they develop mental defenses. I won't elaborate here, but instead suggest you visit my blog or read my Helium.com article:

I just posted a copy of my post to a forum on Amazon.com where I have been jousting with parents for some months. My aim was to go directly to parents with a slap in their face sort of approach and see what kind of reaction I got. It's been interesting, because my tactic is novel and gets people wondering what kind of madman I am. You can join the fun if you like:
