I’ve often heard the critique of religion that it makes adults resort to child-like thinking… but I’ve also been to churches where adults are treated like children. The pastor tells adults to fill in the blanks in their programs with certain words, there’s a lot of call and answer like you’d see in a first-grade classroom, the congregation is asked things like “Are we a generous church?”
It’s just a weird form of infantilizing people.
These are college students at West Coast Baptist College. The dean of students is leading them in singing a popular fundy children’s song. With motions.
Those are adults. Human adults. Singing this song.
That is all.
