Dear Skeptic,Judging only based on this one post that you've made
here, I would guess that you have a lot of personal experience with fanaticism.
Beyond that, if you don't realize that the typical experience in American
Higher Education ("academic learning") is as rich in indoctrination as
anything the LDS culture offers up, then you apparently haven't spent much
time at any universities (I've taught at four over the years, thank you
very much). Note that I'm not saying indoctrination is a bad thing.
Indoctrination combined with "training in free thinking" can be a very
fruitful combination. It is something that both American Higher Education and
LDS culture offer to those that seek it. Not all choose to seek it.
Do the children of today really need more brain washing and indoctrination into
religion fanaticism, or do they need more training in free thinking and
discovery of truth's realities and academic learning, and real life
experience. As Jesus said: let the dead bury the dead. Todays children need to
prepare for a new and changing present and tomorrow that is much different than
the dead yesterday.
LOVE this. We have a perspective that is truly unique in all of the world!
