It would be helpful to know what he is being taught in his religion?
The ceremonies have been approved by all the major churches in the
country and, in fact, elements of the Ordeal are exactly like what a
church would want a member to do, Service to others, day of fasting and
prayer (Scant food and Silence). I have listened to the Ordeal ceremony
three times a year for the last 20 and I don't find any religous
connotations in them.
