no one ever gets outraged on religion and the bible being forced on kids. Why is that?
The bible is probably the most violent, oppressive and sexist book ever written and portrays a supposedly all loving being as a petty tyrant. Why would you want your kids learning about that? I'm completely serious, this isn't a "let's bash the Christians" troll post. Any of you who know the bible, in any amount, know exactly what I'm talking about. Stories of rape( then the rapist has to marry the girl ), murders of children for misbehaving ( being mauled by bears ), mass extinction of entire cities for not obeying god. How can anyone think that's ok to teach kids. What proves my point even more is the fact that there are children's bibles and books that conveniently leave all the bad stuff out. Why? If the bible and god is so great then why have to edit?
Personally I find it all very disturbing and am so glad I'm raising my kids without all that. If they ask I will tell them how I feel, and I have, and encourage them to read the bible and other religious books and decide for themselves. Hopefully they will be intelligent enough to not fall for religion but whatever they choose is their choice, I'll still support them no matter what.

Oh and I made this post because of something I just read about a parent getting all bent out of shape over some Monster High dolls.

You can feel that way, but I don't see bibles being sold at toys r us, or mother mary barbie, so not sure what you mean by it being forced on kids?  and no one is forcing anyone to buy Bratz either or happy meals. EVERY PARENT HAS A CHOICE.

can you give an example of religion being forced onto kids?

Absolutely I can!
How about telling them from birth that god is real, making them go to church and/or bible study every Sunday. Giving them bibles as gifts and making them believe the bible is truth.
Leading them to believe that your religion, which ever one it might be, is the right one.

OH, you mean people raising THEIR own kids the way they choose to, same as you raising YOUR kids the way you choose. No one is forcing YOUR kids to be Christians. Don't  be a hypocrite.

In my house, no religion and no popular culture junk either.

Bratz Dolls in Illuminati Masquerade Ball

Jan 3rd, 2012 | Category: Latest News |215 Comments



Hello one-eye symbolism.

Bratz dolls are basically younger, sluttier versions of Barbie dolls. They’ve always annoyed me because I personally feel that young children should just be kids and should enjoy their innocence while they can. And, to me, Bratz are another way to promote sexuality, superficiality and even celebrity to young girls. But maybe I’m just acting like a grumpy old man looking at new toys and saying in a disapproving tone: “We don’t have the toys we used to”.

Bratz however took things to a whole other level with its new Masquerade collection by incorporating in it all out Illuminati symbolism. Masquerade balls (also known as Illuminati balls) originate from obscure occult Secret Societies who organized these gatherings for ceremonial and ritualistic purposes. These balls often ended with orgies with the masks playing on the anonymity of the sexual partner (see the movie Eyes Wide Shut). Is there a reason why young girls should recreate the occult elite’s ceremonial parties?

Here we have a couple of vampires dancing on a ritualistic checkerboard Masonic floor. Plus, on the left, a sex-kitten checking everything out.

Here’s the promotional video for the collection and see how Illuminati symbolism is promoted to kids.

What benefits can those provide that other activities can't? There are many ways to be social and you can teach your children morals and kindness without religion.
