I think we all agree no matter the religion, branding a newborn child is wrong...unless big corporations pay you

Wow, underage, get the **** out.

I'm probably the only actual 18 year old on this site, ironically.
#176 to #96 - anon (02/07/2013) [-]
Nope. I'm 18 too. There are also 20 somethings here as well. Age does not always mean maturity though
User avatar #372 to #176 - desuforeverlulz (02/11/2013) [-]
I was being mature. I was just pointing out the situational irony the comment had if it had been applied to me.

I'm one of the youngest little faggot introverts on this site, and I have to say:
Get the **** out.
Right now.

lol this is technically true for me, I was still a Christian s…
This is all we'll ever know of the faggotry of desuforeverlulz

You know, my parents were Christian and raised me in a christian environment. Now, I could have gone where ever I wanted. I did choose to be a Christian, but that way my choice.

tl;dr Just because my parents raised me into that environment doesn't mean I was branded like that.
User avatar #112 to #81 - cullenatorguy (02/07/2013) [-]
Do you think you'd still be christian if you were raised the exact same way, but with Islam being your parent's religion?
User avatar #293 to #112 - niggagary (02/07/2013) [-]
If I was born in America, I'm not entirely positive that I would be a Christian, yeah, but it is entirely possible. Now it is true if I was born with Islamic parents in an Islamic country I would be forced to be Islamic. But the examples I am talking about is where the freedom of religion is a thing.

Makes sense. parents raise me catholic. I became nonreligious a few years ago
User avatar #85 to #84 - niggagary (02/06/2013) [-]
Exactly. Just cuz you were raised that way doesn't mean you can't make your own decisions.
User avatar #87 to #85 - savirleo ONLINE (02/06/2013) [-]
People tend to assume that the child will end up similar to their parents. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. What they fail to realize is that apples can roll to their own little place, and grow up in their own way, different from their parents

Right. This is coming from the website where everyone says "I'm forcing my children to play the original Pokemon games because they're the best thing that ever happened to me." You guys are a bunch of hypocrites.

A video game is a LOT different than a religion, ******** .
User avatar #64 to #63 - lafuriaroja (02/06/2013) [-]
Clearly. But it's the thought that counts. Forcing your children to do what you like because it's what you grew up with. Instead of just letting them find out what they like for themselves because you think any other option is inferior. ******** .
User avatar #103 to #63 - smittywrbmnjnsn (02/07/2013) [-]
Not only was he probably joking, but when people say "that's different", it's because they don't understand how an equality works.
Sometimes, you can reduce a ratio. And forced video games is the 1/2 of 3/6.
#79 to #61 - iamphoenix (02/06/2013) [-]
Forcing a child to play a video game is a little different from forcing them to choose answers to some of the most important questions mankind has ever asked.
#66 to #61 - RageGuyyourmom (02/06/2013) [-]
I wont make them play the original because I cant bring myself to go through red anymore, no running shoes and I just get annoyed. But if the series is still in existence I will be picking up games for my kids help teach them to read as they're getting more of non-linear storylines and whatnot.
User avatar #74 to #66 - jaknik (02/06/2013) [-]
Good plan, imo. Not being able to play final fantasy without having people read it to me motivated me to learn.

I was born premature, does that mean all my opinions are underdeveloped?
User avatar #49 - nucularwar (02/06/2013) [-]
why is there a fish AND a cross?
User avatar #72 to #49 - Kennyalways ONLINE (02/06/2013) [-]
Fish is Darwinism i believe
User avatar #322 to #72 - nucularwar (02/07/2013) [-]
The fish as it is there is a Christian symbol though

"Let your children develop their own damn opinions"

What if I told you that by doing this, you are forcing your own opinion of letting children develop their own opinion on the children?

Then how will a child learn.
Everyone here arguing has no children.
User avatar #123 to #35 - slyve (02/07/2013) [-]
You can still teach your kid. Even about religion. Just teach them about all religions and tell them there are hundreds of them, each with a different story to it. If your kid wants to learn more about a specific religion, it will ask you about it.

Just don't tell your child it will burn in hell for all eternity if it doubts the one religion you believe in yourself (if you're a believer).

The key part here is letting your kid think for itself and not do the thinking for it and threaten him if he disagrees or even tries to think for him/herself.
#151 to #123 - anon (02/07/2013) [-]
Some people don't like being taught about religion as you can see in most of these comments
#142 to #123 - anon (02/07/2013) [-]
You really assume the worst out of religion. Were you raised in a house of religion? Did you tell your parents you became an atheist. Did you become an atheist like most people that just dont want a waste time in church?
User avatar #320 to #142 - slyve (02/07/2013) [-]
I wasn't raised with any religion. I was allowed to make up my own mind, which is why i think this is such a good idea. Nobody ever told me that "someone died for me" or i would have to believe in someone and what he did so i could be saved from hell or that i was an inferior human being and i could only be saved by acknowledging that fact and devote my entire life to religion.

So, yeah, i kinda assume the worst of religion because i have not a very good opinion on it. Still, i didn't say we should teach kids how evil religion is, just that every kid should have the right to choose for themselves, which is impossible if you use fear as a means of education.

I'm calling shenanigans due to redundancy. The picture shows both the cross and the jesus fish, two symbols of Christianity, and while I agree with the overall message of the piece, I cannot unnotice that.

My parents extremely discouraged me from becoming Christian to the point where I would have to lie and say I was going to a friends house on Sunday and Wednesday nights.

This is the exact approach my parents took. I was never baptized as a child. My mother went through 12 years of Catholic school, and my father went through 6. My aunt on his side actually went to nun school. But my dad thought, "what if he grows up an wants to be a Buddhist or something? He can choose his own religion." Here I am, 18 years later and a deist. I think that may have been the best parenting choice they've ever made.

I will teach my kids my beliefs but I would never force them to believe them. Exactly how I was raised.
#2 - fordun (02/06/2013) [-]
Im an Atheist. When i have kids i will raise them as Christians. I will get them baptised, i will bring them to church occasionally, i will enroll them in Sunday school. All of these things happened to me. I found out that my own father is an atheist about a year ago despite all this indoctrination.

Why you ask? Because you can't deny logic and reasoning. Its easy to turn away from god. Because once you do. There is no going back. Unless you are a complete imbecile.

Once you go atheist you never go back.

Although I like parts of your reasoning, I disagree on other parts.   
For the first time in awhile, I"m opinionless on someone else's opinion on the internet.

I used to be an Atheist, but not anymore. I find my life much more worth living now that I'm a believer.
User avatar #3 to #2 - fythethefallen (02/06/2013) [-]
Raising a child as a Christian is one of the best ways since the church teaches the kids right from wrong, and that there are consequences for sinning. But kids figure things out eventually. I like your thinking.
User avatar #10 to #3 - lazorman (02/06/2013) [-]
I was raised LDS (mormon), and even if I didn't believe the dogma all the time, I'm so grateful for the the fact that I was raised with good morals and good people.
#30 to #10 - Hightower (02/06/2013) [-]
So you are saying religion is required to be a good person? So why have I never stolen, raped, or murdered? I think your reasoning there is flawed.
User avatar #32 to #30 - lazorman (02/06/2013) [-]
LOL alright, if you ACTUALLY somehow got that I was saying "religion is required" from what I actually said, then I'm impressed. you should be a journalist.
#4 to #3 - fordun (02/06/2013) [-]
Religion can be a great thing. It brings families closer together. Teaches morality. Provides a common bond. Helps mold people to think for the greater good. Religion can do a lot of good things. Unfortunately it also is a big reason/object in several political, military, and social conflicts including but not limited to : The American Civil War, Prohibition, The Genocide of the Native Americans, The Cold War, Salem Witch Trials.

The lesson here is what the bible is meant to teach. Its message is simple and timeless. "Be a good person and chill the **** out". Religion (Conservatism in general really) used sparingly benefits society.
#23 to #4 - arkfire (02/06/2013) [-]
But the Bible says I can't be good because of the sin corruption. And where does it say to "chill the **** out"?
User avatar #40 to #4 - theshadowed (02/06/2013) [-]
What? How were the American Civil War and the Cold War because of religion? Or the Prohibition?
#102 to #40 - fordun (02/07/2013) [-]
Part of the South's argument for owning slaves was that they were lesser people put on this earth by god to serve white man. The only reason why we have the "moment of silence" in schools is because at the start of the cold war we wanted to say we were better then the godless russian people.

A reason for prohibition (besides bitchy women on the rag) was that the forces advocating for it deemed alcohol evil. Hence the term "The Devils Nectar" and others similar.
User avatar #318 to #102 - theshadowed (02/07/2013) [-]
Ah I see. Though, I would say that religion played a minor role in most of those conflicts, and even then, ti was used by bad men as an excuse
#319 to #318 - fordun (02/07/2013) [-]
I know i tried to carefully word my response to note that that was not the only factor but it did play a part.
#12 to #3 - anon (02/06/2013) [-]
And if you cant take care of all that pesky molestation at home, the clergy will step right in for you.
Lets also not forget the racism, sexism, bigotry and hate that is at the very core of the christian religion.
