← Effect of the concept of hell on children

If it was all hell I don't think it would so easily infect the emotional confusion. It's the fact that it conjures love as that which is all powerful and will then smack you if you don't repay in kind. It plays on all the Santa stuff with a sting in the tail. The brain is faced with a perfectly evolved meme to disable a significant element of its development.
