Yeah, I guess I do. My father swore the mixed church upbringing would turn me into an agnostic. And maybe it did for a time (helped along by my college religion courses).

But that didn't stop him from insisting I go to *his* church. When he threatened to stop my allowance if I didn't go to his church as well as my mother's, I went from going sporadically to his church to not at all. It felt like being paid to go to church, and that I could not do under my ethical code. So I never got allowance again. :)

My husband and I worked hard on finding a denomination we both could belong to, so that our son wouldn't have my experience.

But I hope that doesn't mean he'll just believe what we tell him. I'd rather he earnestly sought the truth in intellect and study, then made the final leap of faith backed by reason.
