Religious Child Abuse
Okay, so I know that there is the whole separation of church and state right...but should the state interfere when it comes to cult like religions and the well being of small children? Is it in the best interest of the child to be forced to practice a crazy weird religion when they aren't in the right mindset (age and maturity levels) to decide if this is the religion they want to practice? In most cases the cults prey on "lost" and vulnerable people, it is a form of brainwashing. I know there is freedom of speech, and I enjoy that every time I post to this blog. But when it comes to children I have mixed feelings. If an adult wants to be in a crazy religion rock on...but when they bring their children into it i feel it is neglect and abusive. But should the state intervene?
