I’m nearing the end of my RCIA and will enter the Church, Lord willing, on Easter Vigil this year. My 8 year old daughter is becoming increasingly antiCatholic. She says she will “never, ever, ever become a Catholic” (said with much hatred) and that she hates the Catholic Church.
My husband is a non-confirmed, non-practicing Catholic. My kids have only known the Baptist church we attend. We attend our separate Sunday School classes at the Baptist church a f then go to Mass. it’s not ideal, but it’s a starting point.
The Baptist church is fun. The kids programs are entertaining and they do a great job of teaching bible stories, doing service projects, etc. But it’s not the full truth.
My husband says he may never become fully Catholic. He has never had firm religious convictions. He has the attitude of if I just ignore it, it’ll go away. He does not take the lead of Spiritual Head of our family. He is a wonderful person, but just not a great leader.
I don’t want to dishonor him or God but going against his wishes, however, in the end, I will have to answer to God concerning my salvation and what I did to encourage my children in the faith.
My other kids like the Baptist church because it is “fun”. They don’t have anti-Catholic attitudes though.
I don’t know what to do, or if I should do anything at all.
