I was never raised with any religion, we went to a little Christian church when I was little, but I remember Ma taking us out because she felt that "they tried to tell me how to live my life and I'm not having any of that!" and told us kids that we could go if we wanted. Since then I've swung from Christian, Methodist, Baptist, Wicca, Catholic, Buddhist, Taoist, and everything else I can find. Today I'm very agnostic in that I'm sure none of them are 100% correct, but some do have a good 'base'. The specifics are what cause issues with me. (and interpretation)
I now have a 13 year old daughter who is asking about religion. I teach her my views and the things that I have researched and found. With all this, I'm sooo against her becoming a Christian because I think they are all a bunch of sheep. She is WAY to smart for that. But, I have to allow her to 'find her way' with religion (or lack of it) as I was allowed to do. I'm just really frustrated with standing back and hearing some of the crap churches teach. I'm very open with her, but I don't want to influence her discoveries with my opinions.
I feel that is no different than forcing children go to church.
Any ideas on how to sit back and watch? LOL
