  • Sure, just expect for them to be taught about Jesus.

  • I'm not deeply religious, so I really don't give two hoots what religion the kids are that my son plays with. My son isn't old enough to understand religion yet, but when he's older if he has a friend that is deeply religious and chooses to worship with that friend its fine with me. As long as he doesn't come home and start telling me that I'm going to hell for not worshipping, its all good with me.

  • Why not? Just because you're an athiest? I wonder if you'd let your kids play with mine. Isn't it a shame that we have to ask?

  • Yeah of course, I am a "crazy" christian as you might call me, lol But our kids have nothing to do with that.

  • I don't think you have to ask. For some reason you get the impression that it is a must. I am positive not one single Christian has ever thought twice about who their children play with as long as the child is not a negative influence on them.

  • Why wouldn't I? Even if the topic of religion came up, I think it's good to listen to both sides. I want my children to understand about every religion or non-religion out there. So that when they are old enough, they can make the decision for themselves.

  • Sure, as long as your child does not try to tell my child there is no God.
