Activist Jerry Coyne was recently promoting Dawkins’s article where he obsesses about other people’s children (it’s the article that I easily refuted). What caught my interest was just how extreme some of Coyne’s fans are. Consider this little nugget of Gnu Think:
I applaud Richard Dawkins and what he doing…..I can’t remember where I’ve heard this from but I read that religious indoctrination of children should be categorized as a sort of thought crime , and that children should not be even exposed to religion until age 13 or later and have had a chance to understand it to look at all the different types of religions and to see what it’s like not to have any religion and then make a choice based on their thoughts
But that would require a law from Congress and we know this Congress can’t agree on if the earth is 6000 years old or if our ancestors Played with dinosaurs, and that the universe was created by a invisible man in the sky in seven days.
I do not see the religious indoctrination of children stopping anytime soon.
Of course, no one at Coyne’s blog raised any objections.
Y’gotta love when the Gnu’s obsess over other people’s children, as it exposes their totalitarian tendencies for all to see.
