In the U.S., do godparents have any legal rights to the upbringing of his/her godchild? I remember signing a piece of paper about being the godfather. Does that paper have any legal weight, or is it merely for Church affairs.
I’m asking because my sister is married to a nominal Christian who is not a very good example for his kids. He is a hypocrite, rarely takes care of the kids, always complains about other people and makes fun of people in front of the kids.
Do I have a right and duty to say something to him when he is being a bad example to his kids?
