Quote #13

You see what power is – holding someone else’s fear in your hand and showing it to them!
— Amy Tan
Maybe this is my biggest problem with religion.  Instead of standing on its arguments it scares the shit out of people and then tries to offer a cure for the fear that it created.

  1. This is truth! I’ve been thinking about it ever since I read it a few days ago.

    A (former) friend of mine has a blog about Christian parenting. You’ll never guess what he posted a few days ago. It was actually an article entitled “Want Your Kids to Know Jesus? Scare the #*&$ Out of Them!” (http://www.epicparent.tv/want-your-kids-to-know-jesus-scare-the-hell-out-of-them/). I actually thought it was supposed to be a funny title. But he was totally serious. I am amazed at how blatant he was about using fear to control his kids’ “love” (if you can call it that) of Jesus. Amazingly ridiculous. Also, amazing how he will probably never see the lunacy in this.
