23. The damage is long lasting and real ...



I personally know a family torn apart in the late 80's. The 16 yr old girl ended up in the hospital nearly died due to anorexia. The parents had tried for several years to help her every way they could think of. At some point a psychiatrist decided to try hypnosis on her and managed to convince her she'd been repeatedly raped as a baby by her grandpa and uncle.

There was a church - House of Prayer in Atlanta, the parents along with the preacher was beating kids half to death with the belief they had demons in them that had to be cast out.

There was even people who jumped on the bandwagon of occultism to milk the churches ... I remember comedian Mike Warnke making a quite a name claiming he was a former Satanic Priest turned evangelical christian, eventually proved a liar after appearing on 20/20.

I don't know if any religion has caused more damage to humanity than Christianity, but it has to be near the top.
