Is It Only ‘Brainwashing’ When We Don’t Like What the Child is Saying? April 3, 2013

Is It Only ‘Brainwashing’ When We Don’t Like What the Child is Saying?

The Green Street United Methodist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina said recently that they won’t perform any marriage ceremonies until United Methodist pastors are allowed to perform same-sex ceremonies, too. Right on.

Now imagine you’re a young child brainwashed into thinking those pastors need to get right with God. Well, you’d stand in front of that church all Westboro-like on Easter Sunday and start protesting.

His parents must be so proud… (speaking in support of marriage equality a few years ago and commenters were quick to point out how he was no different. Could a young child really have his own opinions on such a heavy topic or was he just echoing his parents beliefs? (For what it’s worth, the 10-year-old’s parents insisted the speech was their son’s doing and not theirs.)

So before you call this kid a bigot or a victim of mental child abuse, just consider what you’d say if he were speaking in support of gay marriage outside an evangelical Christian church.
