So, I went to a catholic mass on Sunday. My wife and I have decided to have our son baptised. We're trying to convince ourselves it's for the right reasons, to give a religious upbringing, to teach the values of the church and leave him free to find his own way. But ultimately it comes down to the school around the corner being our most local, also the best in the area and being roman Catholic, otherwise I don't think we would bother. I was baptised as a baby but have found my own path and do not believe in God or any other diety. I know it is for the wrong reasons but the warped education system in this country leads us down this path. I'm not looking for justification or approval, just wanted to throw that out there and see what others had to say on the idea of practising other religions whilst ultimately considering yourself to be Buddhist.
