"Get them while they're young." This is the unspoken (and not so unspoken) mission of churches everywhere.

They understand how critical it is to gain converts before they become adults...before they're exposed to science, history, other religions and other points of view. They aggressively target children and youth with marketing campaigns that rival many advertising companies. They sponsor events, activities, games and lots of free food for the opportunity to influence impressionable minds.

Chris, Andrea, Matt and Dell share their own experiences as children and adults from inside these programs.

Yeah, luckily some of us are able to break free from christian indoctrination.  But the majority of people never even question it.
