But I can see the point of how religion can be directly or indirectly "shoved" into the face of other people. Regarding KTC's argument on baptism, yes, the child can be baptized and can be taught a certain religion's ideals, but they can choose to accept or reject it as they grow up. Children aren't blank slates, you know. They have a certain intuition regarding things. They are free to choose."
^ only if the person is in an environment where they can question their beliefs. If you're in a place that discourages any type of meaningful dialogue, than its no good. Highly conservative environments will tend to generate highly conservative people. I point to southern states of US. They're called the bible belt states for a reason.
Essentially, you're gonna be brainwash/taught under whatever ideology your family, community, thrusts upon you. Whether you can actually confront said ideology will depend on how open your environment is to such confrontations.
