A Mother Baptizes Her Two Children Against A Father's Wishes
I saw this story a week ago and thought it was worth sharing. This story brings up a few burning questions and forced me to question, at what point should the courts get involved in disagreements between parents regarding the upbringing of a child? I've actually played this scenario out in my head using various scenarios. Some people might want to disregard this fathers request because both parents are Christians. Some may even side with the mother, simply because mothers know best.
What if the father was a Christian and the mother practiced a religion that society tends to frown upon? This story would probably have gotten more attention and caused a nationwide frenzy about religious freedom and father's rights. Either way, let's talk about this. Which parent is right? Which parent is wrong? Should we even declare a winner in a case like this?
