Do you homeschool because of religious reasons? If so, what religion are you?
Here is why I ask. I am watching a documentary which stated that 75% of all Homeschooled children in the US are evangelical Christians, and I was wondering how factual this is...
What do you all think?

I included religion in our lessons, but I do NOT homeschool for "religious reasons". We care mostly about our children's academics and not so wanted social behaviors, attitudes that they were picking up from their peers "at school". Yes, we sometimes still encounter those attitudes, but at least I know who it is now and can have a better handle on avoiding it. (We are Catholic-Christians). I will agree w/maggie that it's difficult to find homeschooling material that is not heavily slanted one way or another. However it's NOT impossible. I've used resources such as Lesson Pathways, my local library, and other various on-line resources to help fill my needs. My local co-op is secular.

Next question overall
(Religion & Beliefs)
Christians - Is it "okay" in your opinion to preach to children?
