Religion and Child Abuse

Dawkins pointed out that the enforced indoctrination of children into their parent's archaic rituals is a form of child abuse. This theme is expanded on in this article from Free Inquiry by Innaiah Narisetti.

Being an antitheist I support this argument wholeheartedly. However, I cannot agree with her accusations of unwillingness on the part of the UN to face up to this problem. The UN is only as good as its member states and when these include Muslim nations and the Vatican- both specifically criticised in the article for obstructing UN attempts to legislate against, or even criticise, religion on behalf of children- then you cannot point the finger of blame at the body of the UN.
