Anybody got any experience on this issue. I love our kids school and the teachers , it's not inherently relegious but they are makign the kids say grace before meals. I'm an atheist, as is my wife ,we have no wish for our child to be thanking an entity we believe is entirely mythical for her food and well being. As she's being taught this at school, she sees what is being said as being true, and I do object to this. We can have her removed but this alienates her from all her friends. It seems absurd that saying grace is the de-facto position in 2011. Wondered if any parents who are also atheists have found a way to deal with this. I'm really non plussed she's being taught in a learning environment where she trusts her teachers than she should be thankful to a God for her lunch. Thanks.
