Abstract: This multidisciplinary analysis aims to explore the complex relationship between religious indoctrination, specifically within the context of the Catholic Church, and the rights and well-being of children. The study delves into the potential consequences of religious indoctrination on children's autonomy, self-determination, human rights, mental health, and relationship dynamics. By examining existing literature and incorporating insights from various disciplines, including psychology, sociology, and human rights law, the analysis seeks to provide a comprehensive understanding of the potential long-term impact of religious indoctrination on children.
Introduction: Religious indoctrination, particularly within the Catholic Church, has been hypothesized to have negative effects on children's rights and well-being. This study examines the potential consequences of introducing religious doctrines, such as the Catholic understanding of God and Satan, to children before they reach an age of reason and consent. The analysis employs a multidisciplinary approach to understand the complexity of the relationship between religious indoctrination and children's rights and well-being.
Methods: This study synthesizes insights from various disciplines, including psychology, sociology, and human rights law, to explore the potential consequences of religious indoctrination on children's mental health and well-being, as well as the impact on their relationship with their natural family and the religious community. The analysis draws on existing literature, including the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
Results: The multidisciplinary analysis reveals that religious indoctrination may compromise children's human dignity, independence, and self-determination, potentially leading to coercive control. Additionally, the findings suggest that religious indoctrination may contribute to various psychological disorders, including trauma, coercive control, bullying, and narcissism. Furthermore, the study highlights the potential role of dissociation in adult survivors of childhood religious abuse and the challenges faced in obtaining accurate diagnoses and support.
Discussion: The findings of this analysis indicate that religious indoctrination may have detrimental effects on children's autonomy, human rights, and psychological well-being. The multidisciplinary approach employed in this study provides valuable insights into the complex interplay of religious indoctrination and children's rights, revealing potential areas for intervention and regulation to protect children in religious contexts.
