Camp Quest incoherence

Last Sunday my pastor was talking about a camp for kids called Camp Quest. I did a little research (camp-quest.org) and read that “children of freethinking parents” will be able to better experience their free thought at this camp.

I found this fascinating, especially considering the lengths to which atheists go to emphasize the point that parents who try to influence their childrens’ opinions of God and religion are hypercontrolling freaks. Parents who try to persuade their children not to look at any kind of religion, on the other hand, are well within their rights, apparently. Inconsistent, much?

Atheism is not advanced as a belief in anything, really, except perhaps the basic goodness of man. Nature abhors a vacuum and I think children of “freethinking” parents may be better able to recognize this than their predecessors.
