My mother is a teacher's assistant, and she works with mentally challenged students in high school.   
   
There were two girls that my mother worked with, whom were born of incest (the parents were first cousins), and 13 brothers and sisters (whom they were often left to take care of all on their own. The family was very, VERY religious (but not in a good way, by any means).   
   
There was one time in particular where my mother caught one of the girls lying, and the other twin replied with something along the lines of "We don't lie! Lying is a sin, and our mommy told us that if we were to lie, Jesus would come down and rain fire upon us.".   
   
While I believe in God, and am religious myself, there are some times where the Christian community just makes me sick. NO parent should EVER teach their child something so...awful! Nobody should have to live in FEAR from something that is SUPPOSED to give you hope.

There are, unfortunately, far too many individuals of every religion that have a skewed view of the tenants of their own beliefs. These people lump in other legitimate members of whichever religion they belong to with them to make anyone looking on think that all the members of that religion are fanatics, zealots, insane, cultists, crazy, hateful, intolerant, ignorant, etc.

Unfortunately, based on the views of those very religions, those people are and should continue to be welcome members of that group. Unless we start excluding people from religions based on their personalities and mental capacity, this will continue to happen. Doing this, however, is exactly the opposite of the views of most religions. Therefore, most healthy-minded individuals of any given belief must simply "grin and bear" the undesirable individuals that are coincidentally the only ones that ever appear on the news "crazy-ing" it up.

Strange, isn't it?

Both sides of my family are practicing Catholics and I've never heard this said.   
I think this is just one of those things that is rarely if ever said, but Atheists have gotten it into their heads by getting all their information about religious people from Reddit and whatnot.    
   
That's not even possible in the eyes of the church, they teach that you can't be held accountable for your actions until you've reached the age of understanding. So a parent that would say that has no idea what they're talking about.

Atheist: "I don't like religous people because they will insult my differences in opinion"

Atheist: "your christian? wow, you must be some asshole, i hate you, i hate what you practice, go somewhere that is far away from from the atheists that are trying to make the world a better place while you shove religious **** down people's throats"

You do know you're hating atheists because they generalize Christians and in hating them, you yourself are generalizing atheists.

Fair enough. but i can't go one day on FJ without seeing religion bashing, so it has become rather difficult to not generalize

This year at the Office where i work we're not allowed to have a nativity scene outside because it's "too offensive" I think it's going a bit too far when a Christian owned business can't have a nativity scene for Christmas.

Yes, both are child abuse, BUT, lets not all start blaming religion because a lot of people are too retarded to handle it (which in my eyes is quite the achievement, but that's beside the point).

Without religion, the woman in the right pane would still be a bitch. She'd just use different things to abuse her daughter with.

Religion isn't harmful. Dumb people are the cause here.

Religious dogma is what corrupts the mind into thinking in absolutes and authority instead of relatives and voluntarism.
User avatar #144 to #138 - amuter ONLINE (12/14/2012) [-]
Religion is the excuse she uses to "make it okay", most people wouldn't have dared without something to "make it okay" with.
#161 to #144 - anon (12/14/2012) [-]
They would just find another excuse. People do bad things all the time whether they are religious are not. If she is using it as an excuse it does not make the religion bad, it just makes her bad. Many things can be twisted and warped to your own advantage.

I never said it was the only excuse they have...

I'm pretty sure that Christian parents don't do this. My parents are Christian and the only time they ever threatened with god they said "If you don't obey me, you're going to have God to answer to, because he put us in charge and by disobeying us you're disobeying Him" I may be a Christian but it doesn't make me a jerk. Please understand this.

I hope you're sarcastic. I believe Orthodoxy is tamer than Catholicism. I also believe Pentacostalism is more sane than Catholicism, but that's just me.

But then again. **** always happens when you overdo it.

This is a true statement if you want to look it up. The catholic faith parted with a moralistic path and created hell as a fear factor around 1850. There is nothing spoken of hell in the bible and none of the the Christian faiths have a place where you are tortured for eternity. I will go down with my red thumbs and It's quite interesting how you jump to conclusions like that. I'm currently working on my masters in theocracy.

Because one's a threat that could a parent could possible go through with, while the other is the equivalent of threatening them with the boogeyman.
