16. All that can backfire. Here's a different story:
My sis & her hubby (he's into that cult where "Christian Men" come together to talk about how they've let their wives & church down by "letting" their wives "work(?)" -- can't remember the name of it right now), both fundies, have 3 sons...all raised fundies.

#1 son left home asap and became a moderate liberal.
#2 son went to seminary to become a minister, got VERY depressed, and then turned an open mind to the question "why couldn't God heal me of my depression??", and became a non-believer
#3 son -- the most tied to the apron strings, and least likely to stray from the biblical line -- is now agnostic and/or skeptic, for the most part.

When many of these brainwashed kids get into the real world, and get their own lives, they just look back and see the brainwashing for what it is.

All three boys are very compassionate, good people. They are still "spiritual" in many ways. They just don't buy the organized fundy-religious way of living the moral life.

There's hope for some, even if for many the damage will remain. It's not over 'til they play Taps.
