If it is any of the Dharmic religions like Buddhism or Jainism, I won't care.  I would have a rational debate if it is Abrahamic religions. 

If my Grandfather would have been alive, he would have disowned both of us.

Thank you very much for sharing your opinnon about this issue with us. I appreciate it :)

I Think it is the same for people, regardless of our religion. I mean, If we have children, we will surely raise them with the same religion or philosophy of life as us, because as we feel comfortable with it, we will want them to know more about it and be guided the right way, according to us.

But when children turn into teens and adults, I think there is nothing else we can do, because at this age we start to question many things. It is very probable that they stay in the same religion, but if there is something they don't like about it, they might want to change it.

Well, first I´d try to show them the real meaning of my religion. Sometimes they don´t embrace it because they even don´t know anything about it.

I agree that people doesn´t have to be forced to follow one religion or another. So, if at the end, my daughter or my son feel better in a religion different to mine, well, while they believe in God and stay in the "right way" and be happy…well it´d be enough for me!

I wouldn't be particularly happy about it, but those feelings would be because I thought he was believing in something incorrect, not because I felt he didn't have the right to decide for himself.  Otherwise it wouldn't really be that big of a deal; I would still love him as my son, and hope that he is happy.  Same goes for any daughter I may have.   

 

This is assuming that his new beliefs are relatively benign and he didn't join some Indiana Jones style death-cult.  If that happened, I would be considerably more upset, but again, it would be because I would be losing the child I thought I knew, rather than some idea that he didn't have a right to believe that stuff.

Religion is a very spiritual thing. It goes to heart and comes from heart. It’s a blessing when you stuck with it and can’t live without it by looking for new and new answers, advice. I’d think it’s quite private though. When you talk to an adult and accost him to read the Bible with you, it’s better not. Since the words will be bounced back to you in a painful indiffirence and misunderstanding. No questions will be asked, so why to bother. I think, every person should come to it by himself. So no forcing to being religious. To each its own. Respect the person as he is, his hobbies, his aspirations, his interests.
