Interesting - I have been to a persons place were someone I am aware off who do's not believe in a deity.

Had done a good job at grace at the families dinner table without mentioning a deity but gave thanks for the food on the table while being respectful.

Therefore this rabbi is full of hot air because of the challenges she believes Richard presented to her.

She had got her back up before hand and was ready fight no matter Richard had said

Iswanson most childeren look to their parents for guidance especially below the age of eight. And as your more than likely aware they accept the idea of Santa without question until around six or so.

It is this type of indoctrination that RD is referring to as being wrong because as a general rule parents tell their young child mind that there is a god of their faith and the rest are usually wrong, while labeling child as their indoc faith.

What Richard is trying to say is to educate the child to look at everything in a objective manner an as parents it is our duty to so. and not subject them to one doctrine, and help the child develop a rational objective mind set for their future.
