Bullied Children

Letter to the Editors

Many thanks to Asra Q. Nomani for her excellent article “‘Get Them When They’re Young!’” in the August 2014 issue. As a pastor’s wife, I taught young children of various ages in the Methodist churches where my husband served. As fulfilling as that was, I always cringed whenever I sat before each new class, for I sensed that those dear children would believe anything I told them.

Thanks for reminding us that “bad religion that bullies children must be countered with good religion and good conscience.” Indeed, we must “coexist!"
