  • I’m feeling pretty brave this morning so, please, allow me to jump in with another theory….one that includes the “assume” bugger..My understanding is that children under or not exposed to a particular belief in formative ages often figure there is a ‘creator’ of one kind or the other sans any real definition. So perhaps the AHA spokesman(unidentified) would be more accurate to say they want to attact youth TO something & NOT AWAY from anything….If you have no ingrained belief, there is no ‘from’…Teachers cannot teach what they don’t know & parents are the primary teachers…& their parent before them…Making ourselves feel ‘good’ took priority & left God sitting outside relagated to the sidelines of our homes, schools & even some mega churchs. We all require a sense of ‘belonging’ to something/someone greater than self & generally migrate towards that which accepts us. Most proclamined Atheist, for the most part, have a strong sense of morays& values. Like most organizstions, they also have fringe activist groups. IF you truly want your child to be raised in traditional Christian religions then perhaps we as parents should learn & teach while taking them to church. This would seems to be an effective defense againt the undesired.

  • The last paragraph positively exudes irony. If the religious didn’t indoctrinate children it would be extinct within a few generations.
