HI all!!Before I ask you my question, let me just briefly explain my beliefs: I consider my self a home-made,patchwork spiritualist.I believe in bits and pieces of all religions,and have some self subscribed beliefs as well(but when I need to explain it to some one that doesnt want any explanation,I say Buddhist-because my beliefs fit mostly into Buddhism). Anyways, my grandmother has made it known that she would like to see ALL children baptised. My cousin who recently had a baby was asked by her about this,and she almost made my grandmother cry ,by being offensive and saying"no I'm an atheist".I know that she is going to ask me as well,and I'm thinking of saying that I would like for Athena(baby coming soon) to decide when she is older,and that it would be wrong for me to join a church,simply to have my baby baptised when I know I wont make any sort of spiritual commitment. Does that sound offensive,or is it ok? Any thoughts at all appriciated-Thanks so much!
