I’m raising my kids atheist in a God-obsessed culture: How I learned to parent godless children. My children are surrounded by other kids' prayers and patriotism. But I'm determined to teach them to ignore it.

American needs everyones' prayers
Don't expect prayer at a government school where the constitution doesn't mention Jesus. Prayer starts in your home. Everyday. Pray over your children and family everyday in your houses and every night before bed. Cherish them everyday. Read and study the Word everyday in your houses. Don't outsource it to someone else and get mad when they don't don't do it, or won't allow it. It starts with us. Love one another.

Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family by Susan Katz Miller, grew up with a Jewish father and Christian mother. Now in an interfaith marriage, she is one of the growing number of Americans who are boldly electing to raise children with both faiths, rather than in one religion or the other or none. Draws on original surveys and interviews with parents, students, teachers, and clergy, as well as on her own journey, to chronicle this controversial grassroots movement.
