as a parent, i feel the need to speak up. i believe in a Creator. i do not however follow any religious teachings. it is something i know in my heart
and would not for any reason try to impose onto someone else.
if it were up to me, things such as cultural and/or religious teachings would be left up to the parent at home. i love the differences in ppl, but not
when they are being forced down my throat.
i know atheists, christians, agnostics (which i would probably fit best in to), wiccans, and many other ppl w/ different beliefs. the ones that become
my friends are the ones that don't impose their beliefs onto others w/ the threat of "hell" or w/ any other lame threats.
honestly, the day that i was able to shed the idea of heaven and hell was the day that i finally became free. but, i believe in a Creator. it is both
very personal and very abstract.
as far as my children, they go to church when they want. i would never stop them. but they are well aware, even at their tender little ages that it is
up to them to decide when they are older what they believe in.
