Children Can't Be Catholic

..Or Mormon, or Muslim, or any other religion. They don't know what it is, they can't subscribe to something they know nothing about, regardless of what their parents say.

I 'm not talking about 15 year old children here, I'm talking about 12 month olds, 2 year olds, 4 year olds. There are many children indoctrinated with the religion of their parents.

A metaphor to make this easily understandable would be to compare this situation to calling a child a Republican child, or a Democrat child, or a Communist child. No rational human being would call a 2 year old a republican child. It's ridiculous. They can't understand even the concept of a 2 party political system, let alone pick a side to stand with. If your relative called their 2 year old a Democrat child, you would think it crazy, but somehow calling them a Lutheran child manages to slip by.

Stop labeling children with a religion they don't understand, it's not fair on them, and you sound like an idiot.
