How would you feel if your child wanted to convert to a different religion than the one you have in their teens? What about when they are an adult? How would you react?
How would you feel if your child told you they were going to marry someone of a different religion than your family? How would you react?
I could care less what religion she wants to be, or the religion of her spouse. The only problem i would have is if she was trying to convert me to her new religion. I would laugh at her & joke with her for the rest of her life for even trying.

We encourage our kids to learn more about other religions, if only for the open-mindedness it brings. We just started a world religions course in our church and while the concept is great, the terrible closed-minded views expressed by some who are in there with us are pretty upsetting. If she chooses another faith, fine, just so long as she doesn't become a closed minded bigot, I'm happy.

I have no right to choose their spiritual path, that is entirely up to them.
