My parents didn't raise my brother and I with any specific religion. We didn't go to church on a normal basis. If we wanted to go we could. And we would sometimes with relatives. But we also were not disuaded from going. I have been to Catholic, Christian, Luthern, Methodist, Morman and Unatarian churches. I am grateful to my parents for allowing us to find our own way (with help if asked for).
Are you raising your child with certin beliefs, or a certin religon? Or are you going to let them choose their own when they get older.

my husband was raised catholic, I was raised methodist... I see them as basically the same with the catholic church having more rules. I have fallen in love with the catholic church and have a huge respect for the traditions. We are raising the kids catholic but I have ALWAYS told them that when they are adults if they find that their heart lies else where, that I would support a conversion IF they did research first knew what they were getting into and did it of their own volition and not because of a boy/girl.
But I have always been of the mind that we are all praying to the same entity... that we have different paths but all end up in the same place... even those religions that go to war against each other... I believe will find out in the end that they were praying to the same higher power... that the sins on earth were to be a learning process.

We are raising our children without religion. Their spiritual path is their choice.
