Trauma in Religion - Religious Trauma Stages of Development

How the most comprehensive abuse of trust possible is developed and implemented
 

Sensorimotor stage (years 0–2)

Bonded for life to authority outside the family by parents; genitally mutilated if male leaving a deeply embedded residual memory of a frozen in fear and terror filled moments that remains lifelong for the defenceless child.
 

Preoperational stage (years 2–7)

Encounter with god and hell is strongly focused into the major psychological development period in childhood.
 
It is during this development period that human children establish the notions that today we refer to as personal boundaries, responsibility, identification, attachment to family, establishment of place in community.
 
This process for a human child begins with what is understood by science as "Theory of mind" and by religion as formation. The process must be carried out as early as possible to ensure lifelong entrapment and absolute obedience on demand through traumatic bonding of the child without its consent by parents who were themselves entrapped as children and are now doing precisely as instructed.
 
The child is property that by tradition is owned by the Church and therefore it is appropriate that the child be abandoned to the religion by the parents. This authority and ownership claim is not challenged bu governments nor are the Human Rights of the child considered (Property does not have rights other than to be owned and traded) under the guidance and direction of psychological entrapment under the guise of religion. 

This encounter is one that establishes early encounters with religious guilt, scapegoating, bullying, threats, blackmail, fraud, deception, mythology as truth, denial of facts, nonacceptance of evidence as well as reinforcing the notion that life is filled with pain and suffering in a world that can be filled with miracles, wishful thinking and sheer fantasy depending upon who you associated with and how they responded to you.
 
The real purpose of religion is to provide absolute and comprehensive ownership of the child's mind by the religion and the religious who may inflict severe psychological trauma on the defenceless child so as to save it from the horrors of a real life. 

It is a life that demands instant obedience while the ever present god in your head knows what you are thinking before you do; there is no option.  
 
The individual no matter what age must cede to this insurmountable power held by those above you; these lines of authority extend to the Vatican, the Pope and their claims of ownership of the planet we all get to live on.
 
The comprehensive control of the mind of the child is established through this introductory period of a Catholic education. By the time a Catholic child enters first grade they are compliant to any who claim to have a hold or connection with the God who holds control of the spy in your mind. Permanent fear thus bonds the child through inflicting layer upon layer of trauma. Suffering is inescapable for the child and a to be expected outcome for the Catholic parents and community.
 
There is no human love in such a process; there is only ownership, productivity and the accumulation of wealth and power for those in control. 

These practices are taught under the guise of religion, there is a reliance on brooking no impediment from all those around them. There is and can be no resistance from the adult Catholic.
 
The child has few options and sees it in a way that says to them that they have the option of complying with the demands and the requirements of their religion as dictated to them by those higher up the chain of hierarchy or die thus making membership compulsory under threat.

The only option available for non compliance is an early encounter with the greatest fear we all hold; death.
 
In these development years of the Catholic child's life they have to cede to each and to every encounter.
 
Their minds are forced into compliance into a structured way of thinking and all of it is done without their consent as the child is considered the property of the parent who in turn is under the psychological control of the Church/religion.
 
No rights exist for these children.
 
All of it is enforced with the ever present exquisite forms of punishment traumatically seared into the brains of vulnerable children that they must not question authority.
 
Human survival requires the ability to question authority; this right of every human is snuffed out before the child can realise that there are other options in life and that there are real ways of defining evidence and truth based on us as human beings firstly rather than as a human slave to an abominable god. 

Concrete operational stage (years 7–11)

Ownership and control are forced into the psyche of the child. They are required to engage in a process of confession where they seek forgiveness for each and every transgression away from the doctrines of inculcation; their mind is owned by the wants of the religion and the religious, their rights are overridden by the unfounded and untested claims of the religion. 

It is during this critical period that an opportunity exists for the child to attempt to escape via different strategies as survival can, will and does over-ride the indoctrinated and delusional claims required to keep up the deception.

When the experience of this obscene God and the devil are observed in their true configuration they are the most sophisticated act of grooming and control that a dysfunctional group in society could possibly devise and our governments continue to hand this power to any unfounded claims simply on the basis of some wishful or delusional thinking. Our children deserve better and so do you. 
 
It is a deception that is wholly focused on the ownership and the full and complete control of the child's mind from birth through the entire life of the individual, their death and the notion of any afterlife that they may have been deceived into believing in. .

The next step in the journey of the Catholic child is to confirm complete ownership and control of the child's mind through having the ability to claim connection with the spy in the head of the now sexually maturing child. In this state of control the child becomes completely malleable in the hands of those who have religious authority over them. There are no boundaries that a predator needs to overcome as every aspect of human psychology has been entrapped in the religious inculcation process.

In such an environment there are no boundaries. No physical, no emotional, no family boundaries exists as they have been usurped and replaced by the religious orders and the way they identify themselves as mother, father, brother, sister. The entrapment is complete and only a few will escape if they have no support in their attempts to do so.

A catholic family has been developed to be acutely aware of any transgression and via the confessional or allegiance to other than the paternal family and siblings they have been educated through fear of retribution to take these concerns to the substituted family consisting of predators with unlimited power to exert at any given moment an action that will with definite certainty take away the life of the child instantly.

The Catholic environment is a toxic environment from the child's perspective if it were to be free to express it. This right to speak freely and to be heard is non existent in a Catholic family  environment be that the paternal family or the pirate family substituting using fakery and threat to obtain and to keep absolute control over the vulnerable minds of children.
