I know we are on quite a tangent, but I personally have no issue with raising my kids in my faith. I will read scripture to them. I will teach them my beliefs. I'll take them to my church for their formative years because it's part of my family's culture. It's not force-feeding them, in my view. I have no intention of battling religion with them. No one will be punished. Besides, they will grow up and either stay with the faith or go to some other view no matter what I do. Why should I be ashamed of my faith?
