An Increasing Number of Parents Raising Kids without Religion

“Families who do not identify with any faith now teach their children to do the same. This is a different path from those parents who do not believe in a higher power yet teach their children some semblance of religion as they believe a little belief is a must for a moral and compassionate child.” WRN


My brother is among this group, sadly, but when he got married, he and his wife adapted the Methodist order of marriage for their wedding. Yes, it was strange, as if someone was propping up a deer that had been shot and gutted talking about that splendid buck as if it were still alive.

And it’s a good comparison, really, because my dad is among those who did go to church, would talk about moral absolutes, but when push came to shove, he wasn’t all about that. We can only pray that those who are not exposed to the 1950s “we go to church because we’re not commies” are able to see more clearly what Christ does for a man.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
