Hi everyone! I'm happy to have found this group, I have so many questions and would like to seek advice for more seasoned parents. Currently my boys are almost 6- just started Kindergarten, and 4 years old. My oldest, Zane, is a natural freethinker and has already asked many questions about God and religion. While I always start with 'some people believe...but Mommy thinks this..'. He has pretty much agreed with my version and has stated to family members and friends that the Bible is full of make-believe stories and even told some friends who just lost their grandfather that heaven doesn't exist. Before I had taken them to church for 6 months or so, I was at the time a reluctant atheist. I changed my mind to a proud atheist after attending the bullshit church. So as a result, Zane has taken what he learned in sunday school as the opposite of truth and has been open about his feelings. Although I have spoke with him many times about being respectful of others beliefs and there is no right or wrong when it comes to those topics. Also to never say those things as a 'fact' rather than opinion. Personally, it pisses me off that there's such a double standard. Had my son spoke of love for Jesus or how the bible is the word of God, there would be no problem. But it's causing a rift between me and my friends. Any suggestions?
