Because life without labels would be too confusing...



Wow, how did someone find a picture from my own childhood??




When children are labeled from birth with the religion of their parents, they don't stand much of a chance to develop their own religious and world views. I wonder what would have happened if this same kid was born in Iran... Still Jewish? Doubtful.

  3. That picture is sad but true. Reminds me of what Dawkins said in The God Delusion, "that is not a Muslim child, that is a child born to Muslim parents".
