Some Madison Tea Partiers Exploiting Children

I picked up this picture off of Ginny’s blog from her post about the Madison Tea Party yesterday.

I think it is reprehensible to use children for political purposes like this.  These kids aren’t young enough to know what is going on.  This is exactly the kind of thing Richard Dawkins talks about.  Children should not be given labels.  They should not be labeled Republican, Democrat, Christian, Atheist, Muslim or Jew. 

We should teach children the difference between the political parties and the different religions.  Teach your kids why you believe what you believe about politics and religion, but don’t tell them that if they don’t believe like yo do they will go to hell.  Children just don’t have the intellectual capacity to be able to process that kind of threat.
