Brainwashing and FEAR – The Tools of the Church
I remember having to go to catechism when I was 7 to 13. … for Catholic “sacraments” such as, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, ashes on the head, pennance – asking another man in a closet to forgive your sins? C’mon really?
The fear starts at the teaching of the “original sin” like I did something wrong to be born and needed to be forgiven and saved. Then the, you’re going to go to hell stuff which really gets a kids attention. Then they started with words I didn’t understand, like “heathen”, blasphemous, atheist, etc, etc. They seek 100% absolute control… over one’s mind through voluntary compliance. All classic brainwashing tools…
Looking back, I must have been such a pain in the a$$ to the nuns and priests because I asked so many questions and I wasn’t buying their indoctrination. They tried, they told me that I “had to learn, like I was insufficient to think for myself. First off, the Trinity. How? What? They said, they are all the same person all together. I knew it later on that the Bible makes no mention of the “Trinity” whatsoever. When I was about 13 or 14, I saw prayer meetings where old Catholic people were worshipping statues of the Holy Mary, spoke highly of the Saints, and one time I went to one where they freaked me out speaking in tounges.
Thankfully, I was NOT indoctrinated, and forced to believe anything, I didn’t have to be de-programmed. I only went to satisfy my Mother who was a big time bible banger. I guess it could have been much worse and I could have gotten molested by the so many perverted pedophile priests that has been going on for decades and decades.
I have children now and they were taught about false prophets, false idols, cults, warned about religion… and the “great deceiver” because those people don’t even know who they are worshipping. I advised my children that nothing is a coincidence, everything happens for a reason, everything is interconnected somehow, the universe, the air we breathe, all of our vital organs…..
I tell my kids there is a supreme being, a great spirit, our maker, called God. That’s it… and their beliefs are between them and God and nobody else.
I WATCHED THIS VIDEO AND IT REALLY OPENED MY EYES….. if the link is dead search youtube for: “Zeitgeist religion”. IT IS REALLY INTERESTING!!!
