The decision raises further problems. How far is it ethical, in arguing what one thinks is the truth, to raise doubts in a man’s mind and deny him the security he finds in his faith? Only a few people are actively doubting the validity of Christianity, most people will prefer to pay lip service to it whether they go to church or not. Whatever the sincerity, children are brought up in an atmosphere of Christianity if only that taught at school. If I had children, I would have nothing to fill that vacuum, and it would not do any good to confuse them with apparent splits between authority figures, myself and school. In fact, if their mother was a devout Christian, it would be better to leave them to be brought up that way, so that they could opt out later if they wanted to.

I did make a valid point but I'll do it again so you can understand
"The thing is that atheists and theists have more in common than they'd like to admit-both are stubborn, dismissive folk who would rather eat carpet than to entertain the idea that the other side might have a valid point. Atheists could learn a thing or two about the values that the bible teaches, and the devotees could learn a thing or two about scientific process."
Then you posted
"You're either one or the other.......as atheists are merely people that aren't theists.....
Now you can get down off your horse. "
So I posted "You do come across as stubborn and dismissive and as someone who would rather eat carpet than entertain the idea that anyone but yourself might have a valid point. You just played right into the posters hand on that one. That is priceless"
Proving you are stubborn, dismissive and you still can't accept I made a valid point.
Seriously you cant make this crap up

Freedom of religion...
Eat somewhere else... there are only 40 billion other pizza places.
Atheists sure are cry babies and self-entitled brats.

Still unable to show where I might be wrong?
Conversely, can you prove that you are right?
