"Well - there's one way that might convince him... but it's kind of a dirty trick.  Get him to admit that Einstein was a great thinker.  Then show him this link.  Read it first so you know what it says:…"

"One issue my husband posed in the last argument about this, last spring when I requested a compromise of every other week, was the ethics/morality they teach in Sunday school. I still have not come across research or stats on Sunday school but I am…"

"Thanks for your note, that is definitely reassuring. I am thinking that I need to go to Sunday school with them, which I guess will involve slipping in and out so I can check in on both. I just don't want them to be absorbing stuff as true that…"

"Thankfully that is not a concern here - while it is a Presbyterian church which does not recognize gay marriage, the pastor has actually performed one gay marriage in the church (made some people made but I guess it blew over!) One of our…"

"I attended Sunday School and Bible School regularly all through my childhood - by 12, I was an agnostic, by 20, a full-blown atheist, while having religious parents. With and atheist mom and a supposedly agnostic dad, I can't see that much harm…"

"I agree, and to me, trading "free" baby-sitting Saturday night (they stay over at the in-laws) and Sunday morning for consistent exposure to the church is not being a responsible parent.  I have decided that if their attendance just…"

"Oh of course there's always more history!  None that is that relevant here, tho I was really surprised when I realized that he thought as strongly about this issue in the opposite direction that I do!"

Heather Spoonheim replied to Guinevere McIntyre's discussion 'Sunday School Research?'
"Is this church accepting of gays, marriage equality, women's reproductive rights and science?  If so, I might not be too worried.  If not, I'm not sure what can be done.  Instilling god-delusion into a child is dangerous, in…"

Sunday School Research?

Hi all -I am an atheist and my husband is an agnostic - we have 2 boys, 6 and 3.  His parents live in the same town and are extremely active in their church, which is a pretty mild Presbyterian church that I would not be so disturbed about if they were not involving our son (and now they want the younger too) in Sunday school and other church activities.  They are very pleased that the church has just started offering a Sunday school class for 3-yr-olds!  Argh! The class runs with the school…See More
