My wife wants to send the kids to Church and I don't, any advice?
What is the best way to tell my wife, that I don’t want my children to go to church?
It has yet to come up, but just incase. They are 1 and 3 now. I have never really bought into religion growing up in the Carolinas. I was one of the lucky ones. Lol. My best friend from childhood was not so lucky. I have watched friends, family, and loved ones, terrorize there children with this absolute absurd belief.
As a child I was not fully aware there was even a choice not to believe. I know better now. My wife is what I like to call a recovering Christian. Although she still says she believes. This from a woman who had told a friend she was not Christian, but catholic. Lmao. Hey did not say she was smart.
How should I go about this?
Thank you, (name protected)
You could always just refute everything the Church says. You are within your parental rights to do so, and after a few refutations your wife may think twice about suggesting Church.
Compare belief in Jesus to belief in Superman and Spiderman to make it easy on their young and budding minds. Keep examples simple enough that a 2 year old could understand them.
You should also teach your kids about tolerating those who hold such beliefs, it'll be imperative to their normal functioning in this fucked up society during adolescence.
I wish you the best,
