and i know being a good human is wat all religions aspire to be..but that realisation of who we r and wat we want to be comes much later...


oh sorry, your first sentence was successful marriage, didn't read the other part at the end, sry.

Well if they realise that bein a human is more important that religion then their kid won't really be affected/confused.
hullo but that's exactly my point...how do we get the kid to be a good human and have faith but don't know wat to tell him about god....cause the only way i can see that happen is if we raise him in an athiest probably communist idealogy that there is no god and being a good human is THE thing to be....i mean even as adults it's difficult comprehending and making sense out of diiferent POV of diff religions on same issues...how do we expect a child to do that????Confused
Dont tell the child anything, trust his intelligence to guide him Tongue He 'll do alrite
well they won't exactly be living on an island that this can function as a sociological experiment of how he turns outConfused but that's kind of  back to square 1 won't the child who's not told anything but sees different things happening everywher be super confused!!!Ouch

Why do we need a faith to tell us about god? Confused none of those are real anyway LOL god exists, but none of these religions know any crap about god.

 think it is completely possible for people from two different religions to raise a kid that is not confused. And without being athiest. I have seen it happen with a few of people I know.
There area couple of things that can happen:
1) The child can be raised to be aganotic-spiritual taking whats best from both religions and praticing them in joint rituals and unique ways.
2)They can be of both religions; they pratice relegions till they are old enough to choose one or they continue praticing both all thier life finding a way for them to co-exsist later in life ( so creating a religious relatvism/agnostism)
3) They are raised in a third faith. I know someone who is christian and hindu, that themselves praticed buddhism and raised their kid as buddhist  well.
 
 Any of these options of course requires people to see god and religion as more liquid and not be ridgidly religious. They need to put thier love, humanity and faith  be more important than the traditional ideo of god.
 
There is one last option
4) They are raised as one parents religions and the other spouse usally converts, you see this in India where its usually the males religion that is embraced.
 
Of coourse in this case one spouse is more flexible than the other.
 
So NO they do not have to be atheist, however that is a good option with nothing wrong. People who do not belive is god can still be good and have very strong sense of right and wrong. Unlike what most religious people think. Living in a very liberal city in America I know few athiest and they are good people in fact one of them is a police officer who athiest because he has seen some horrible thigs of what people do in the name of religion.
