Nothing says 'I really believe' like the brainwashing of defenseless young children. You've really got to admire these theists.

When I was a child we rarely had sweets or chocolates, but anytime I got a couple of sweets I used to always leave one on my bedside locker for my "Guardian Angel", and she always ate it. When I eventually discovered that one of my big sisters used to dog my footsteps and eat the chocolate as soon as I turned my back I was heartbroken. Not that she(the sister) had eaten the sweets but had deprived my poor Guardian Angel of one. A phone call from God would have me in a convent today, no doubt, instead of being whatever it is I am today. A daylight atheist.

So, an adult has been ringing children pretending to an all powerful creator of the universe, and giving them orders to carry out specific actions?
That's not creepy at all!

I include all theists that indoctrinate their children into their funny, irrational, and superstitious beliefs. I don't include theists that leave it up to their children, once they've reached maturity, to make up their own minds.

I assume you are talking about Santa? If my assumption is right, I agree with you there is a lot creepy about Santa too and it is a practice I will not be performing on my children.

However there is a massive difference which nullifies the analogy. There comes an age, usually still in the pre-teens, when you come clean on the lie and point out it was all just for fun.

The people phoning in THIS case not only have no intention of doing so, but are trying to get those children to indoctrinate OTHERS too.

Anybody who has actually been on the telephone to god would know that he must also use an armitage shanks. Good solid device but there is a little echo.

How could someone who truely believes not encourage the same belief in their children?
One would always hope that the quality of mercy would shine through eventually.
