I am so not looking forward to spending another Sunday choking back anger at my in-laws house as they attempt to indoctrinate my children. I think the "In our house we are atheists" conversation in coming and "you don't want you grand kids to think your fucking insane do you?" will probably be the core topic of it. My girls are not being raised to be very "open" about religion of any kind. It is contradictory to our end goal of having logical, grounded, and rational children. We are raising them in a reality based home. This is not to say that they will not be taught what "faith" is and why people feel the need to have it.
I think my gloves are coming off soon. I am growing tired of keeping my mouth shut. Our religious family members do not offer my wife and i the same courtesy of letting things go unsaid. It just pisses me off. Happy easter.
