quick child abuse quote

still assembling my thoughts and reading a ton of things (Independent Fundamental Baptists, ATI homeschooling, religious trauma syndrome) but this one stood out to me:

The will of a child must be broken before it ever has a chance to develop.

A fussing or crying baby is exerting its selfish will.  That will needs to be eliminated, since wherever human will is God’s will cannot be.

John Shore talking about IFB’s To Train Up a Child

  1. Eugh augh way way way too much resonance in that quote.

    The article on religious trauma syndrome that you linked was also fascinating; I’m glad there are people recognising the issues that toxic churches/religious sects can bring.
