And for pretty much the same reasons. Religion is a powerful, intoxicating mix of good, bad, lies, prejudices and the occasional bit of truth. Like alcohol, it can,if consumed in small quantities, help adults get through life, but is usually harmful in large quantities. It's certainly not something that children, too young to know better, should be exposed to, because it leaves them effectively brainwashed, and they will find it much harder to be free of it when they grow up. Keep children clear of this poison. They can experiment with it when they grow up, if they choose to.
