Dear Atheist, Agnostic and Humanist Parents,
I am writing an essay about raising children without the beliefs in
God and Religion. Would you be kind enough to share your experiences
how you raised your children in a secular humanist environment? How
did you answer your children when they asked questions about:
A, Issues of belief in God, Prophets, Scriptures and Life after
B, Issues of rituals….prayers, fasting and pilgrimage.
C, Issue of ethics and concepts of sin and guilt.
Please share some of the stories of your family life especially when
you had to deal with those relatives, friends and teachers who
believed in God and Religion, performed rituals and promoted
concepts of sin and guilt in your children. Your answers will be a
lot in writing about that topic.
Your secular humanist friend,
March 31st, 2007
