You know what makes for good parenting? Telling your child that s/he is a wicked sinner before s/he can even speak.
Remove the religion angle and what would people call this? Abuse. But if you add some “sincerely held beliefs” in the mix and very few people will bat an eyelash.
Days like this make me wish for the robot apocalypse. They probably won’t screw things up as badly as the humans have.
I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
It almost makes me wish for Ultron to take over…
I just cannot understand the mindset. It makes no sense to me to do something like that to a child. I just don’t get it.
