Losing My ReligionSubmitted by go213mph on Wed, 06/25/2014 - 20:40
As a conscript inducted into the Southern Baptist regime in the 60’s and 70’s, I’ve had a pretty good taste of what it’s like being indoctrinated by traumatic mind control techniques. With the rod rarely spared during my upbringing, this was also used as a primary tool of reinforcement.
Today, it appears that the “fire and brimstone” propaganda employed during my youth has since been diluted to a doctrine more tolerant of our “evil” ways. With our politically correct censorship culture, I suppose that this form of marketing practice has been found to be more effective in keeping the coffers filled these days.
Due to my past, I am not unsympathetic to the plight of those under the influence of religious false constructs and just how far they have been taken. Consider this to be an attempt at deprogramming from inconsistent and downright harmful belief systems. Strong negative reactions to this information could constitute confirmation of a captured mind.
