It would be if the idea was that you are going to hell no matter what. He seems to be completely unaware that belief in hell is accompanied by the belief that its completely possible, and easy for children*, to avoid. If there's a child out there that is so bad that the idea they are going to hell enters their mind then their family life is more than screwed up.


*Since they are physically capable of less sins and normally not even aware of some of the possibilities.
And since Jesus said that the Kingdom of Heaven was pretty much chock-full of children, it would stand to reason that it's virtually, if not completely, impossible for a child to wind up in Hell. At least that's my theological heterodox non-Orthodox opinion.  ;)

Because he sees raising a child within a religion as a form of child abuse, Dawkins is writing books for children and teens:

I’m actively working on 2 new books. Outgrowing God is Atheism for Teenagers. Second one (illustrated) is Atheism for Children.

Being rasied by atheists who tell you there are 567,890 genders, that life is meaningless so do whatever you want with whomever because there are no consequences after death is child abuse.

Wonder how many kids are being mentally abused by the new liberalism?

Eventually they will loose any form of christian morality and end up worse than the heathens of old.

I mean, the great majority of "Youtube atheists" (most rebranding themselves "skeptics" over the past few years) are right of center on feminism/gender/sexuality/etc. issues, and fight as vehemently against the "more than two genders" stuff as conservative Christians, and Richard Dawkins has shown himself to be a typical conservative-old-man-yelling-at-the-clouds on many issues and totally alienated himself from many leftists to the point where many on the left (including atheists) sneer at the mere mention of his name...  but hey guys feel free to continue with the LIBTARDS HUR HUR ATHEISTS RUIN EVERYTHING TRUST MEEEEE  :p

Well, this is what one might expect from a leading Atheist fundamentalist.  We’re talking about a man whose zeal for atheism is eclipsed only by the Bolsheviks.  Some militant atheists in my experience try to dodge that analogy by claiming Bolshevism was a religion.

One other ridiculous aspect to his nonsensical idiocy is the existence of religions which are not conventionally theistic, for example, the Jain religion and some schools of Buddhism.

Indeed, if this was Wikipedia I would have to add a Citation Needed tag.

The hypocrisy is quite thick when they are fine that atheism be considered a religion too if it means being exempted from taxes.

I long for the days when we argued about Terri Schiavo and whether Harry Potter was Satanic.

You do not mean "in my opinion."

Come off it.

You love to make fun of people, especially children who are already going through harassment.

You supported making fun of kids. Kids in school.

Mighty neighborly of you.

You may want to take a course in spelling, and stop mashing your thumbs at random.

I fear for your children.

Every "*ism" is a cancer. Good thing "Eastern Orthodox Christianity" doesn't end in "ism"  ;)
