Mims44 1,444 Posted March 27, 2015 Share Posted March 27, 2015 What with all the recent religious talks in threads the past few days I figured I would throw this out there. For those of you who have kids, did you or are you raising them to have the same religious beliefs as yourself? I ask because I recently got into an argument with my ex-wife about on this subject, when you file custody papers apparently there is a question with multiple choice answers on who if anyone will educate the children on religion. I checked that I would and stood firm on that position. My ex is a very headstrong atheist and wants our kids to be the exact same, I want them to educate themselves on the matter on make their own choices on what they believe. She is of course fine with the literature of scientific theories covering gene mutation, evolution, etc. But is very against me having the Bible, Koran, or excerpts from the Pentateuch around. As I'm sure a few have guessed from previous posts I fall more on the agnostic side, I don't have the facts to prove one way or the other and lack the faith to believe one way or the other. That being said, I don't judge others merely based on where they stand on the subject I believe it is an individual choice that should be respected by others. As such, I would want my children to be educated from all points of view when making a decision about their beliefs. I've pretty much got it in the bag, since I have agreed to not ask for any child support ever if she agrees to all my other terms. But would like insight into what everyone else does, has done, or plans to do as far as raising their children covering the subject or religious beliefs... and also if anyone else has ran into a problem similar to mine.
