You could never do that to your kids...but strangers...ooh yeah, bring it on...this is the beast inside people, I am speaking about.
Not that is me sticking up for what I believe in. People with morals have feelings for all you have put down. I may not believe in everything you post but when you post something you know nothing about but rather bringing that religion down I will say something.

You want to attack God...You want to attack my religion and then run in the corner and cry...what do you expect...it comes around...leave God out of this...leave my religion out of this...leave my beliefs out of this...if you want to attack, then I can attack as well...who I am attacking is not you, it's the beast...who is doing it through you...that is what I believe.

Yeah just think its the beast since any thought against you is this devil

Look you have no belief...in your head, there is no God...if that is the case...then there is nothing to believe in, why call it a belief to begin with?

You label atheism as if it is a belief...how can I attack something that is not a belief?
No I didnt! I said ALL religions YOU KNOW nothing about. You are like talking to a two year old!! Sometimes you are funny then other times your just plain out there.

Hey...Butterfly and Amy...remember that she trolls people. You aren't going to get anywhere so just talk of others' posts. Ignore her to keep your thread alive.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with God-fearing (respecting) children being raised morally as well.

Anywhoo God fearing children or Moral raised children which is your way and why??

Well I don't have kids, but you definitely know where I stand on this one!   :thumbsup:

I like how you said "god-fearing children" compared to "moral-raised children" -- that is a spot-on way to describe it!  And a kind of funny distinction, yes?  ;)  (Not saying god kids are all immoral, but their morality isn't always stemming from the best source).

I've watched a lot of people's kids who were being raised strictly religious.  A common theme included homeschooling; ya know, purposefully isolating their children from the real, "sinful" world.  Another common theme was having a Noah's Ark (boatload) of kids.  One house was adorned with literally dozens of crucifixes on all the walls (morbid much?).  I knew one little girl who could recite all 66 of the books of the Bible.

As for the toll a fundamental lifestyle takes on a child, some of my best friends report that great chunks of their "kid time" were taken away and replaced with church or church-related activities.  That is extremely sad to hear...you only get to be a kid once.  They've had to witness to others on behalf of something they didn't fully understand!

My husband was raised Mormon and therefore, had tithing automatically taken out of his first paycheck and was expected to go on a 2-year mission once he ended his teens.  By that point, thankfully, he knew better than to let 2 years of his life go down the drain to such B.S.!

Anyway, if I did have a kid, I also don't think it's good to preach "hard atheism"...Thor forbid that makes them go in the other direction.  lol!

Yeah so why not attack your daughter the way you do others for believing in God. Does she know how you speak of religion?
Well yes, thank you for asking me that. Yes I am very open with my children. And is my husband with hes religion.

Wait a minute.  On a "Do you cook" post, you mentioned that you don't cook much now because your husband had passed?  Now your mentioning your husband like he's still alive.  So which is it?

I think it would be better for a child to be moral raised than to be "God fearing" children when using butterflywings description for "God fearing".  I think it's better for children to be raised "God fearing" using sherna's description only if the parents are also "God fearing" and the kids should be moral raised as well.  I think BEST OF ALL, a child should be raised with love---(I believe all the mom's in this thread have shown great love for their children but would like to choose AmyTrivitt as an example here because of the details she posted) Amy's daughter will grow up knowing that her mom wants her to think and make decisions for herself...and that her mom loves her no matter what she decides in life.  I believe all a parent can do for a child is raise them & guide them the best way they know how...and love them.  That child will eventually be on their path through life, choosing which way their path will go.  I think the child that knows they are loved have the hardest time disappointing their parents, and the parents that truly love their children enough to be a living example to them and then let them make their own decisions..are rarely disappointed in their kids.
Thank you so much! And you are so true.

Have to say I wondered about that one myself because I have seeen many posts from you, Amy, where you talk about/mention your HUSBAND along with your kids. I was NOT about to answer that one for you though. ;)

Yes, I remember you had written something in a thread about not being around for awhile because your MIL had died. I was questioning myself (and my sanity) when I saw that about your husband dying. :confused1:
