Fiona & I will be on Huffington Post Live tonight

A couple years ago I wrote about Fiona and her belief in God. I wrote about it in my former job with Momtourage (I don’t know why they have it listed as being written this year, it was not), and in a better piece on my own site, Bill O’Reilly and Bill Maher in my back seat. As I’ve written before, it’s a bitter pill to swallow when your kids don’t believe what you believe.

Tonight, at 7:20pm, Fiona and I will be appearing on Huff Post Live, in a discussion about this very topic. Kids and religion – it should be interesting! You can tune in here. I hope you’ll join us!

    I read your article and it was very interesting to me. I am also an atheist (so is my husband). My daughter (7) has also asked a lot of questions about God and has told me that all her friends believe, so she does too. I think part of it is a rebellion against me and part just wanting to be like her friends.

    I encourage her to think critically about all questions – not just God but everything. I hope that she eventually comes to her own well thought-out solution but I won’t lie and say I won’t be disappointed if she decides to believe. At least I will know that her (possible) belief would come from her own convictions and not something that I forced upon her.
