Awesome post. While I am a very Spiritual person, I NEVER have pushed anything on my son. I go about my daily life in my own way and if and when he is curious and asks questions...my answers ALWAYS begin with the words "I believe...." and end with "but just because this is the way I am, doesn't mean it' the only way. Everyone has their own path." Raising an independant thinker has been one of my main objectives in Motherhood.
Having Catholicism shoved down my throat as a kid, made me rebel and eventually develop a deep hatred for the religion. I mainly feel this way because of the self-righteousness of those who devote their life to the church. They are all a bunch of hypocrites! (remember the priest child molesting scandals?). Guess they took the saying "Love thy neighbor" too seriously! OK...I'm off my soapbox now.
