Imagine your neighbor having this conversation with you:
Neighbor: I wanted to ask you about [your son]… We’re going to this thing tomorrow and I wanted to know if he could come?… It’s a church thing, but the kids don’t really do a lot of the church stuff. They just play. I thought he might like it.
You: Well, what kind of church thing is it?
Neighbor: Well, it’s church. We go to a really nice church down the street and I have heard you and your boyfriend talking about being atheists, but I figure your son might still want to see what it’s all about.
You: My 6-year-old son?
Neighbor: Well, yeah.
You: You’re asking to take my 6-year-old kid to a church, knowing that I’m an atheist?
Neighbor: Well, I know you rejected god, but that doesn’t mean your boy has to grow up without knowing all his options, right? I’m not trying to offend you…
How would you respond?
