Can Religion be considered to be child abuse?

While I agree that our court system is highly flawed and that we(humans) need to evolve socially in general, what implications does your statement have to do with religion?

Are you serious? Like i dont think a religion is child abuse, but then again, at times, some people are a little tooo strict with religion. So im not in favor of holding anyone back from self liked views, but my thing is the less pressure the better ( happy all the way) that is the best religion.
Also let me know how to change my avatar here anyone, thnx :D :)
