There’s an interesting article in yesterday’s Washington Post about how atheists talk with their children about terrible things like the Newtown shootings. It made me stop and think about my own beliefs – which, I think, are no different from those espoused by parents in the article. I touched on my “religious” practices in a post I wrote last week about why I did not attend the memorial service for a BNA colleague.
