unreasonableinsanity:

I saw this picture today on my Facebook homepage and it just made me rage.
It illustrates just about everything I hate about religion in one sentence.
 The caption of the picture itself was: “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” ~Proverbs 22:6
Which is one of my favourite bible verses simply because I was indoctrinated from a child into the Christian faith, and now I’m a proud atheist.  So much for the bible being infallible.

I would rather teach them to think so they can be whatever they decide to be when they grow up.
