Children younger than eight years of age are in one of many classes called "Primary", such as "Star A", "Star B", "Sunbeams", etc. Males attend priesthood classes while females attend gospel doctrine classes. The children are then placed in small classrooms that are taught by ward members who have been "Called" to that position.
Mormon children are taught to sing indoctrination songs such as "Follow The Prophet", "I Hope They Call Me On A Mission" and other songs specifically designed for indoctrination. They are taught to fold their arms and to be reverent. Boys are taught to go on missions, girls are taught to be married only in the temple.
The high level of indoctrination occurs at these young levels to insure the children will be lifetime active, paying, praying and obeying members of the Mormon Church.
| "Sharing Time In Primary" Guess What It Was About? |

| I went to church yesterday and almost gasped at the sharing time lesson. After we sing Happy Birthday to the Dec. kids, our Primary president says:
"Good morning boys and girls. Now we are going to talk about another special birthday. Do you know who else was born in December that we are celebrating this year?"
All the kids raise their hands immediately, with so much excitement because they all know the answer. She calls on an eight year old girl who says "Jesus!"
Sorry, wrong answer. The Primary President says "Well, that is true, we do celebrate his birthday in December but I was thinking of somebody else. Who can tell me who I am thinking of?"
It was sad to hear a 5 year old give the correct answer. "We are celebrating our Prophet Joseph Smith's 200th Birthday."
No lesson on our Savior Jesus Christ. They would rather the kids focus on Joseph's birth.
Unbelievable. I have heard some things that really irritated me at church before, but this one made me sick.
