38. Telling kids that fairy tales are real life and that faith in such is somehow going to help them is
LYING to them and teaching them to be illogical.

Why start them off on a path to lies and ignorance if you can avoid it?

Besides THIS says religious indoctrination to me:

http://www.amazon.com/Veggie-Tales-Minnesota-Search-Umb...



Video Description
From KIDS FIRST!: Self-affirming and moral lessons are fun to learn when smoothly integrated into an Indiana Jones-like plot with songs, humor, and talking vegetables. VeggieTales skillfully uses stories from the Bible to provide useful lessons for children. In this episode, Minnesota Cuke feels constantly ashamed when others laugh at him for doing the right thing, but in his quest to find his friend he learns that his role modelNoahhad similar issues.
