My question mark key is not working lol, so sorry in advance.
I live in a small southern town in the bible belt. Almost everybody here is baptist so its hard to get away from and its hard for my kids because so much of the social aspect for kids in this town hinges on the church.
Anyway, how would you feel if your kid decided to jump on the southern baptist bandwagon. Would you be dissapointed or pleased or angry or just non chalant about it.
I would be upset. I admit it. I would not stand in the way of my kids path, but I would question if they were really making an informed choice or if they were just going along with what their peers believe.

That is tough. I live in the South, too, and the baptist churches outnumber all others--and there are a lot of churches around here. The Baptist church seems to be one of the strictest, least forgiving churches. I've heard more heads of those churches preach more hate and intolerance than from any other denomination, so with that in mind, I'd have a very hard time were one of my daughters choosing that path. That said, it is their choice, and they know it. If they come to that choice on their own--without pressure from peers or family (my husband's family is baptist), then I'd have to respect it, as hard as it would admittedly be for me.

Next question overall
Do you dress up while taking your kids trick or treating?
