See this is all the proof I need that Catholicism is brainwashing. Let's look at the similarities between Catholics and Barney fans:

1) Two people got together, made some stuff up and they have become rich spreading the word.

2) Most are indoctrinated while young and lead to believe that others choices other than those presented are non-existent. Those that refuse to share and care your way are to beaten to death, stoned, burned, etc.

3) Overly simple solutions to complex problems are presented by a fictitious character who, depending upon the contrast on your television, appears to vary in color.

4) Both are avoided by people who value their children's ability to think.

5) Both faiths require you ignore reality and use your carefully guided imagination to reach a goal where subservience and donations (in form of merchandising) are given freely without care for the good things that can be done in this world.

6) Men who would otherwise be gawked at in their strange costumes head both religions

7) Catholicism is to computers as Barney is to WebTV
