I've been reading some of the debate in the "homosexuality" thread, which, inevitably has turned into an argument between Christians and non-Christians, mainly. It makes me wonder how people are raising their kids; how many are raising their children in the religion (or lack of religion) that they grew up in, who was raised religious and doesn't want that for their kids, and who was raised without religion and has decided they want more for their kids. My husband was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school, but now does not practice religion at all, and I was raised without religion and this is how we intend to raise our children. I would also like to add that I didn't choose to raise my children without religion out of ignorance; I feel that I'm fairly educated about various religions, but I do not agree with much of what is taught and instead I want to instil in my kids my and my husband's own values rather than Christian values. I'm just curious how everyone came to the decision to raise their children with or without religious influence.
