Hey you don’t need to be an Arab leader to agree to disagree to anything. All you need is one person who is adamant that the distorted view of a bronze age subjugation and mythology will rule the world and another be believes in humanity, facts, evidence and logic. And I can assure you there are plenty of people of both persuasions (and others) in this world.<quoted text>
It seems like you and I are just like the arab leaders; we agreed to disagree.
Mashallahh May allah keep them safe for you, Just out of curiosity if anyone of them asked you about god what do you say ?!
I tell the facts as acceptable for their age.
My boy was curious when he was 5, too young for me to tell the harsh facts of why I feel as I do about religious people. However I assume resulting form peer pressure he eventually chose to attend Sunday school. He went for almost 2 years and gave up last summer, as it turns out after considerable covert pressure and threats by certain members of the church to keep him. He eventually bucked up the courage to defy those threats of going to hell and upsetting god and left.
His twin never showed any interest, she is the quiet, thoughtful one and likes nothing more than joining me in my hobby of learning about Cro-Magnon artefacts and culture, except of course when she’s reading or playing with her Nintendo. She decided right from the start of school that god is in the mind and there was no space in hers for anything like that so would not be muddling up her thoughts by attending religious instruction lessons, she asked me to provide the letter excusing her. Note RI lessons are compulsory in English schools unless the child is opted out by the parents.
The youngest is too young for school yet but has shown the childish interest in her brothers Sunday excursions and hangs on every word he says about how they tried to coerce him into staying (I believe it is something he will never forgive religion for). She, like the others will eventually make up her own mind. The choice is hers and hers alone
