Raise Your Hand if You Think This is NOT Indoctrination

 

 

I mean, really... what else is there to say about this?  We're taking young children and telling them that wearing magical pajamas will protect them from the invisible evil spirits that want to do bad things to them while they sleep.

I can't even work up a chuckle about how absurd this is.  It's sad.  I feel so very sorry for these poor children.

 

Atheism isn't a lot like religion at all. Unless by "religion" you mean "not religion". --Ciarin

What I find funny is the words on their "magical pjs". Righteousness and truth are admiral qualities, but then we find the word faith. I may be wrong, but isn't faith mere blind acceptance? Well, like Meatloaf said, "two outta three ain't bad".

No! They need swords to thrust into the hearts of the nonbelievers!

After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.

Is it just me, or does the look on boy's face just scream "Future murderer of abortion clinic/stem cell research facility employee"?

"Anyone can repress a woman, but you need 'dictated' scriptures to feel you're really right in repressing her. In the same way, homophobes thrive everywhere. But you must feel you've got scripture on your side to come up with the tedious 'Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve' style arguments instead of just recognising that some people are different." - Douglas Murray

I can.

In fact, I nearly fell out of my chair I was laughing so hard.

 

Magical pajamas. Yes, that's right. Magical. Fucking. Pajamas.

And then Christians will claim that Scientologists and Mormons are weird. Sticking out tongue

 

What are we even supposed to do anymore? Religious parents just slip into the realm of total, undebatable absurdity. There's no reasoning or arguing with someone who actually thinks that there is mystical armor they ca conjure into being for their kids to protect them from watching porn or becoming homosexual or doing any one of a number of things that are just plain normal to do.

Quote:
"Natasha has just come up to the window from the courtyard and opened it wider so that the air may enter more freely into my room. I can see the bright green strip of grass beneath the wall, and the clear blue sky above the wall, and sunlight everywhere. Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence, and enjoy it to the full."

 Maybe its a new uniform

 Maybe its a new uniform they plan on using in the next crusade, it so reminds me of the outfits worn by those 900 years ago. They even have head gear and a shield.

Though my mother was a religious fanatic at least she didn't think of shit like this. 

Are these kids trained by Becky Fisher the Jesus camp bitch?

I didn't think it was

I didn't think it was possible for my opinion of the religious to sink even lower.

"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.

Hmm

At least it's pretty easy to make a ton of money off the religious.

Unless of course intentionally supporting a faith in order to amass riches of the zealous and ignorant is immoral.

Religion, the con-mans favorite con.  (In no way does this mean all authorities of religion ARE immoral con-men, just that many are)

Great advertising... Nice

Great advertising... Nice safe godly clothing.

The testimony contained is embellished - Id be willing to bet a tooth on it - all for the sales and bragging rights to the creators' (hahah) friends and family that they have brought the christian community a great product.

 

Do they still make cartoon character bedtime clothing? I remember dressing up as a princess as a child...wearing the garb to bed. I felt special that is for sure.

Literally, HOLY

Literally, HOLY SHIT???!!!

$39.95 (US dollars for my foreign friends)

I wonder how successful this is. Making money off of this that is.

 

TAG:

Machine washable or in baptismal font.

Do not dry clean. Sins must be pre-rinsed.

Flame retardant characteristics depends upon

the status of the wearer's immortal soul.

Spermicidal fabric softener available for catholic

customers upon request.

 

Yeah. This is pretty fucked up. But really what 'should' we do about it? Prevent them from selling them? Prevent christard parents from buying them? Track down whoever purchases them and put a big sign in their yard saying "My kids wear jesus pj's"?

Hmm. I'm going to go after a different angle and call: BRILLIANT. (We are talking about kids after all, and kids love shit like this)

Our response: Rational Armour! You get a badge for every logical fallacy you demonstrate awareness and understanding of. A really flashy one whenever you adequately rip out the heart of a specific religion with an essay. Kids will love it!

Fuckers steal all our ideas, it's only fair we return the favour. And improve upon it in the process. Smiling
