Let your children develop their own damn opinions

I'm with Christopher Hitchens on the idea that it is ridiculous to refer to a "Christian" child or a "Muslim" child.  Children are born atheists.  They are literally "branded" by the beliefs of their parents.  If they escape, they typically have the psychological scars to prove it.

I have tried to not teach my children to be atheists.  I don't attend church with them, and I have explained that I don't believe in Mormonism.  What I hope to show them is that there is another way in the form of science and reason.
