Someone did a blog about young people leaving churches in droves, and I left this comment which, like many comments, I felt micro-blog-worthy:
As an atheist I’m glad kids are leaving churches in droves. Not because I think they should all be like me, but because I think religious indoctrination so often stifles critical thinking and in the name of evangelism makes a population of people who believe out of gullibility, bias or fear. And even if the bible is in some sense true, that kind of “faith” produces a really horrible quality of religion and character.
I would rather someone be christian or hindu because they have thought about it, educated themselves and agree with it, than agree with me out of fear or indoctrination or peer pressure.
