Briefly overheard this morning on an NPR report: "I'm passing on spirituality to my children, more than any one religion." This seems to be a more and more laudable (in the world's eyes) position. What a sad situation this is. Parents have not only abandoned their responsibility to direct their children's education, giving it wholly over to others and blaming those others when things go poorly, but now they are leaving religious choice up to their children, too? They want their kids to be "spiritual" but don't particularly care if they become Muslim, Christian, or agnostic? What commitment do people have to their faith anymore?
