What do I want to teach my child about religion?
My wife is pregnant. And aside from the excitement that comes with that news, it also means we have been clearing out our attic to free up what will be the baby room. Among the things we are getting rid of are a small collection of (children’s) bibles and bible-themed books. These are remnants of our education and upbringing, but since neither of us are religious they landed in the “for sale”-pile. I hesitated to do so, because regardless of my feelings about organized religion I do realize the cultural impact Christianity has (had) on our society. It can be useful to know the stories and doctrines of religions; if nothing else, it’s the only way to make an informed decision about following or not following them. It made me wonder: what do I want to teach my kid about Christianity?
The answer is in my new blog.
