Why are children identified by their parents' religion? Why is there such a thing as a "Jewish child"? A "Muslim child"? A "Christian..." - or for that matter a "Catholic child"?

There's plenty chance that they will grow up to adopt the same religion as their parents (a phenomenon that's not so shocking, well documented and rater much expected). But it's also true that childen very often grow up to adopt their parents' political stance.

I don't see people referring to children as Tories or Marxists! And of course not, how ridiculous! There would be moral outrage, and quite rightly too, in my opinion. But there's not really much difference.

Also, why is the child of two atheists not referred to as an "atheist child"?

It's stupid - why paint the children with the same brush? It's presumptuous and could hypothetically be psychologically limiting. Children may well not adopt the same views in later life. I was brought up by two Green Party members - I wouldn't vote Green now. I was brought up by an agnostic and a Christian (now also an agnostic), yet i'm atheist.

Okay, rant over. It just pisses me off. No

They are identified by their parents religion because if they were good little children thats the religion they SHOULD follow. Unless it's not christianity.

Sorry, sometimes I cant help but mock myself.
