Peddling fear to children…


From the Friendly Atheist:

How do you teach children about Hell?

If you’re evangelist C. Matthew McMahon, you just scare the shit out of them by introducing the concept of eternal damnation at the age of 5 with your new children’s book:

Remember, kids, God loves you, but he is going to torture you forever because an allegorical man and woman ate a piece of fruit He said not to. Now sleep well and try not to think about how you can die at any moment and end up on fire forever.

I think anyone who buys their kids that book should be automatically listed on a CPS watch list.
