Quote# 52469

you likely have a very sensitive child who feels extra remorse and guilt. If so, don't try to talk them out of it, it doesn't work, they only think you don't understand the level of their depravity. they are sensitive to the awareness of their own sin and are completely aware you don't know all the bad stuff inside of them. they don't believe they deserve to be saved.

so tell them that they are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! they DON'T deserve it and that the sin inside is evidence of that. so instruct him to get on his knees every time he has doubts and THANK God for giving him what he did not deserve.

Child abuse much?

11/18/2008 12:35:28 AM


You people should be forcibly sterilized, and your children taken from you.

11/18/2008 12:37:31 AM


Fuck you. Seriously, fuck you. I hope you never have children.

Guilt and shame. The fundie parenting one-two punch!

What the fuck?!

Those who are incapable of proper parenting can simply guilt their child(ren) into submission.

a mind far far away

Child abuse. This person should be put in jail.

In fact, go one better by admitting your own filth, declaring that you're too vile to live, and killing yourself right in front of the kid! That'll show 'em what your "loving god" is really about!

11/18/2008 1:03:29 AM


That took a turn for the worse...

11/18/2008 1:08:35 AM


Let me know how that works out for you in about 10 years dumbass

It's never too early to crush your kid's self-esteem. The omnibenevolent God demands it.

Sick. Just sick.

That is all...

A thoughtful example of Fundy child psychology.

BeenThere DoneThat

GREAT idea. You do that. Let's see, that will be approximately 364 hours, or equivalent to 7 years of weekly therapy for your child. And that was without the god shit. Just plain ol' guilt and criticism.

11/18/2008 1:54:30 AM


Or you could try sanity instead.

11/18/2008 1:57:20 AM


This is just....sick.

A child naturally takes joy in life - unless they have parents like these idiots. Then the joy is beaten out of them, to be replaced by guilt.

I second Nowonmai: these peoples' kids should be removed from them, lest they receive vast mental/emotional scarring.

11/18/2008 2:06:16 AM


That poor kid. >_<;

Telling a sensitive person who already feels an unnecessary amount of guilt something like that is like taking a handful of salt and rubbing it into a huge, gaping wound.

11/18/2008 2:24:13 AM


Fucking bitch. You are an evil POS. I hope your child leaves the second they are able to and never looks back.

11/18/2008 2:43:06 AM


Go to jail.

11/18/2008 3:06:58 AM


I hope that child has someone sane outside the fundie bubble looking out for him.

Allegory for Jesus

...and remember: religion is definitely NOT child abuse....
Seriously. What the hell? You said that this child feels "extra remorse and guilt", and that this is a good reason to guilt trip them and tell them are worthless? I feel really sorry for that kid if that person took your advice. Sensitive kids already feel things more acutely. You should definitely not feel prompted to make them feel worthless with twice as much intensity due to that.

To put it bluntly: people who feel regrets the easiest need to feel them the least. You should be double-timing on kids who have no sensitivity or sense of personal wrong-doing rather than helping to land a few blows against a child who is already fighting with himself.

Can someone please give me the number for the child protection agency in Valerie's area?

11/18/2008 4:24:49 AM


Because low self esteem is a good way to keep the sheep in line.

Thinking Allowed

Fundie parenting tip #126:
Make sure you children are felt inferior through guilt and remorse for being children.

This is why fundies shouldn't have children.
