I never said I lied to MY kids about those things. In fact, I taught them the truth. How can I lie to them about God, a known and accepted entity that no has ever proved does not exist but others attest to having experienced. I can give you plenty of evidence that santa and the others don't exist based on well known historical writings depicting them as originally fictitious characters.<quoted text>first of all I said you lie to KIDS about those. Then lie to kids about god or they think that because all the lies you have already told them. I don't care if you believe in god, would you deny my right to NOT believe?? it seems that is what you said. You believe what you wish, I don't think god is necessary for anything. That is my right and my successful marriage doesn't include anything about god. We believe the same things are important in our lives. telling the truth, being charitable, working toward same goals for our lives. Not everyone has to believe in heaven and hell to be good people and not all of us need to believe that god is our creator. Actually, I believe man created god for his own self serving reasons. have a nice day!!
If you chose not to believe, I support your right to do that. I never said different. THAT is the difference between you and me. Your major thought of complaint is on those few who might attempt to instill a hellish finish if you don't accept. I won't do that. It is not my place or theirs to say that. Jesus NEVER told anyone to say that. And I never said a good marriage depended on any beliefs in any god. I always said, a good marriage is one that is worked on by two dedicated people to each other. That is regardless of God. If both believe the same way, it will be fine, but should one person begin to take a different path, whether it be religion, drugs, a job, sports, or whatever, it brings friction into the marriage unless both agree to it.
