You may or may not know that I was born and raised Catholic with a Protestant father. As a child, I was very religious and I struggled for a long time with the fact that my parents were so
open-minded heretic. Apparently this is infectious, as I started asking tough questions myself as I grew up, and the answers didn't satisfy me. Later, much later, I found the Unitarian Universalists and finally had the feeling that I was among people like myself. I'm very happy with my choice.
Doug is still Catholic but, well, that's his story to tell. In any case, we do not raise our children with a belief in a higher being of any sort. We do tell them religious stories of all kinds and from all backgrounds, they know the story of Noah and his ark as well as the Norse or Greek mythology. We more or less raise our kids according to UU principles because they are good principles.
We are currently visiting in Germany, and in Franconia (traditionally Catholic( there are lots and lots of giant crucifixes standing around in the landscape. Alan has started asking questions, and he started to find his own answers, too.
