1.) Do you think all children should be exposed to some sort of organized religion to help form their moral compass?
I don’t know much about child-rearing, so I really can’t say. Religions in general can be a mixed bag of nuts when it comes to imposing their particular “moral compass” on others. Though generally I think it’s good to expose children to religion. At some point later in life most of us start asking the religious questions: “Why are we here? What is this life all about?” And religion is a good starting point for investigating into these questions.
2.) What effect does religion have on your daily life today?
Not much, I consider myself as a spiritual person, more so than a member of any particular religion.
3.) Are there any negative aspects of religion that have affected you in the past or that affect you now?
When I was in college, my roommate — who was a pot-smoking, guitarist in a KISS cover-band — suddenly became a Born Again Christian, cut off his hair, and spent the next semester tormenting me that I was going to Hell if I didn’t renounce Satan and give my life to Jesus. So that was annoying. Other than that, I can’t think of religion impacting on my life one way or another.
