Religious brainwashing of children is child abuse.

07 July 2014, 14:36

Many will have seen those clips of preacherman conman Benny Hinn touching (knocking down) stupid gullible people on the forehead so they fall over backwards. This supposedly heals whatever ails them and releases the demons within.


I don't care if cretinous adults go along with this nonsense as if it is normal behaviour and believe that it works? People are free to believe in the ridiculous and stupid and to throw their hard earned cash at Hinn and company to fund their private jet-setting lifestyles.


But now a truly disturbing video has emerged on YouTube of little children Being "Saved" at Christian Revival. It is terrifying to watch children being treated the same way.


If you have the stomach for it then just watch this video of tiny children being "saved" for Jesus.

Most of the impressionable children play along with an attitude of, “You touched my head, so I am supposed to fall backwards? Okay if that’s what everyone else is doing I’ll do it too.”


Amusingly, at the 1:20 mark a little girl (must be the brightest of the lot) simply refuses to play. She's not falling backwards for anyone. The preacherman spends a good 20 seconds try to get her to fall over before moving along to a more impressionable child.


This is the most dangerous and pernicious aspect of religion and is straight forward child abuse that stunts the child's intellectual development and ability to think freely. It is an appalling indictment of the parents that permit their children to be mistreated and brainwashed in this way.

We need to forget about Helen Zille and her tweets. We need to forget about the Spur incident and all other side issues. Right now the recall that Pravin Gordhan just got from Zuma783 is all that matters. Read more...

It seems like a common occurrence now that whenever the Rand gains momentum and begins appreciate in value, something must always bring that momentum to a grinding halt. Read more...

The Gupta angle: Gordhan's recall

The Gupta's are scrambling, and my guess is that they want this case to go away. The only way for this to happen is for the finance minister to withdraw. Read more...

Who benefits when the rand falls?

It seems to me that every time the Rand is doing well, there is some announcement from the Presidency or the NPA that sends the currency into free fall or generates a strong rally. Read more...
