Raising a Heathen

13 Ways to Raise a Heathen

1) Never talk about God to the child, or while he's around.

2) Make your life, your conduct, and your behavior indistinguishable from the pagan world around you.

3) Never teach your child about religion... let the school do it for you!

4) Show good heathen example: never go to church on Sunday, and never arrange that someone take your child to church.

5) Do nothing to instill Christian values or devotions in the child.

6) Never teach your child prayer, especially morning and night time prayer.

7) Make sure NOT to have a Bible in your home.

8) Use inappropriate language within ear range of your child, especially blasphemy.

9) Never receive the Sacraments, especially Confession and Holy Communion.

10) Let television and the mass media baby-sit your child.

11) Never say graces before and after meals.

12) Have little or no Chrisitan literature around the house.

13) Pretend God, the devil, Heaven, and Hell do no exist.

"If a child goes to Hell because of the neglect of the parents teaching them their Faith, you can be sure the parents will follow." ~ St. John Baptist Vianney

"But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged around his neck and that he should be drwoned in the depths of the sea." ~ St. Matthew 18:6
