no, that's terrorism
Not having kids
On a random child no
On my own child no
Would I guide them yes
My grandma taught me my prayers
She never forced me to pray I wanted to learn because she knew it I wanted to know them
She would go to mass and would pray
She would be in pain and pray her pain would go away
She was strong and church made her human to me
She never asked others for help she only helped others
But she looked to GOD for strength and guidance
She never forced me to mass or to believe in anything or anyone
If I had a kid I would do as my grandma
I can take them down the road that leads to GOD but they dont have to follow
Were given free will to believe or not to believe
We find GOD on our own
Never. Religion was forced on me and that screwed me over pretty good. The whole gay is evil was hard to shake off but I had to to be who I am as a bi sexual.
Religion should be something willingly accepted otherwise what does it mean?
My kid will be able to have access to any religion they choose in order to decide how to best guide there futures without me. I chose wicca as that was the best way I felt to go.
With Ra as my main God, Its closer to nature and energy. Its accepting others no matter who they worship or don't. Its about love and finding peace. Magic plays a part as well like rituals around the moon cycles, weather or planet alignments. The white kind that doesn't harm anyone. Black magic harms others.
Thats how I define it to me.
As defined by a website: Contrary to what those who choose to persecute or lie about us wish to believe, Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists.
Wicca is a deep appreciation and awe in watching the sunrise or sunset, the forest in the light of a glowing moon, a meadow enchanted by the first light of day. It is the morning dew on the petals of a beautiful flower, the gentle caress of a warm summer breeze upon your skin, or the warmth of the summer sun on your face. Wicca is the fall of colorful autumn leaves, and the softness of winter snow. It is light, and shadow and all that lies in between. It is the song of the birds and other creatures of the wild. It is being in the presence of Mother Earths nature and being humbled in reverence. When we are in the temple of the Lord and Lady, we are not prone to the arrogance of human technology as they touch our souls. To be a Witch is to be a healer, a teacher, a seeker, a giver, and a protector of all things. If this path is yours, may you walk it with honor, light and integrity.
I was forced to go to church every dam Sunday until I was 18. It was such a waste of time and I wish I had a choice. I would never force a child.
I did and he rebelled, thank God!!!!!
At that point it is no longer a religion or faith but is a cult.
Of course not. I would, however, introduce a child to religion(s), so that they can choose which they like best, if any. I am Christian, and I have one child who is Baptist, another who is Nazarene, and one more who chooses no religion but accepts God in his life.
Billions do. I don't believe in any of the ancient myths about supernatural beings like gods and I'm doing my best to limit my daughter's exposure to such nonsense.
I certainly would not, but unfortunately many parents and religious leaders do!
Religious organisations today are hypocritical, self-serving, criminal, and terrible child abusers.
Any organisation that frightens people from very young, by brainwashing them into believing one religions attitude, is guilty of criminal mental child abuse, some physical as well!
Any organisation that denies some sections of society equality because of their gender or sexual orientation is guilty of crass social injustice! That applies to every religious organisation on earth.
One day maybe all of god’s children may be treated equally by everybody, but it is absolutely not the case today!
Oh hell no!
Aren't all religions passed on as bring forced on children?
Not anymore. I would not subject my future child in that way like my father did.
I will teach my children a wide variety of things. I plan on teaching them the classics, stories from both the Bible and other religious texts, I want them to be open-minded above all else.
