I don’t think that all forms of parents teaching their children about their faith should be considered brainwashing.
But watch this video and then try saying that religion is harmless:
What she’s doing isn’t too bad in and of itself. I doubt she knows what she’s talking about; rather, she’s just repeating what she’s been told.
What I’m more worried about is what will happen to that girl in ten or twenty years.
Will she ever learn that there are alternative ways to think?
Will she ever feel safe exploring any of those alternatives?
Will her family ever let her stray from Islam?
What will be her attitude toward and view of non-Muslims?
We don’t know the answers to any of those questions for sure, but it’s not too hard to speculate.
