Says I,Most people that get married do so,hoping to raise a family.<quoted text>
Am I "fretting?" No. That is you projecting since YOU would worry about YOUR child if they didn't follow your teachings.
I never influenced my son concerning religion.
Go to church or not.. it was up to him.
He never has attended church by his own choice.
He and his wife also choose not to have children so there will be no Christians coming from this family.
"Self serving?" Only stating facts, honey. You seem to be poorly informed so I thought I would share some facts with you.
Of course they do. I was raised Baptist but went to a Methodist and Lutheran church services with my besties when I was in high school.
Wanted to see what the difference might be. Curiosity.
Two years ago when I went to Italy, I attended a Catholic mass just to see what it was like. Catholics really know how to do rituals..much better than Protestants.
No matter who is preaching it...it's all BS.
Speaking of BS...
Yes, I wanted my son to grow up thinking for himself.
He did. He came to his atheist conclusions all on his own.
I am very proud of him.
In your son's case,he and his wife have opted to have no children.
As you state"There will be no Christians coming out of this family"
From that,one can deduct that they had a concern that,if they had children,they feared that they may have converted into believers,once they realized the error of their parents ways,or,if they remained atheists,they could be afflicted with mental problems,drug and alcohol abuse or suicidial tendencies.
And yes,25% of atheists attend religious services on a regular weekly basis....
That is more than enough to satisfy their curiosity and explains why many of your children,when they reach adulthood convert into believers.
get out of the spinzone and join the real world.
