Here we have yet another example of how religion shapes children at impressionable ages.

Sigh. I guess it’s time for me to quote Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion again:
Let children learn about different faiths, let them notice their incompatibility, and let them draw their own conclusions about the consequences of that incompatibility. As for whether they are ‘valid,’ let them make up their own minds when they are old enough to do so.
Faith can be very very dangerous, and deliberately to implant it into the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a grievous wrong.
