Sorry but I'm not going to shove any religion down my kids throat

I am not going to force a religion upon my kid, I am not going to say that they are "going to hell" if they don't follow a certain religion either.  I have no issue with the teaching of different religions and then letting my kid decide which he wants to follow when he is old enough, why should I force something upon him? It is his choice as to what he wants to believe. Anyone agree?

P.S. telling me my kid is going to hell is quite immature and ignorant especially coming from supposed adults.

I agree :) My son is free to learn and choose (or not choose) as he pleases.

I tend to agree with you.

I feel the same. 

We will answer any questions our children have and let them choose what they want to choose. I also did this with my oldest son.

I agree completely. A child should be able to make their own decision about what to believe.

I agree. And it's nice to know others feel the same.

I teach my kids what I believe is true. Therefore I teach them our religious beliefs.
