Monkey No Aware #9 — Religion is brainwashing then bullying

lacrimae rerum by Andrew Grimes Griffin

Religion for children is about brainwashing, for adults it’s about bullying.

People who convert to a religion as an adult, especially a religion like Buddhism that is largely foreign to their culture, can cherry-pick the doctrines of their newly adopted faith. They like to claim it is about freedom of choice. But for the vast majority of people, religion is not and never will be about freedom – it starts off as brainwashing and then becomes bully and/or be bullied.
