should a four year old jewish child be taught the buddha by his atheist father?
is praying to the buddha totally wrong for a jewish child to be taught?
it seems to be against being jewish, bowing to a statue.
the jewish grandmother respects that but says it is wrong for the father
to teach his son that, 4 years old.
Children should be taught all religions, not brainwashed.
Poor little girl.
There are no Jewish 4 year olds. No Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or pagan 4 year olds either. They're just children and can't grasp these complex metaphysical concepts like adults can.
Buddhists don't pray to gods; they're atheist by definition.
Fail Troll fails again.
If the child doesn't know Jesus, any ol' statue will do.
The religion is called Buddhism. There is not just one Buddha. They do not worship the Buddha.
Buddhism is a philosophy that is compatible with many religions.
I wish my parents had been so open and honest. My life could have been quite different.
You can be taught anything you like:
When you become of age of reason for yourself then will you start to weigh the facts or will you ? or did you ?
Jewish has a down side as with all other religions.
It is not who is wrong or how long they been wrong but where you end up. hopefully you will see the true light.
It is 100% wrong!!!
Idol worship is prohibited in Judaism (see the first two of the 10 commandments).
Children should be taught the history of all religions but not pushed to believe in one or the other. Let them decide for themselves when they are an adult.
May God forbid. Direct him to the words of the Bible instead.
Is your child old enough to decide that he is jewish... also how are you supreme ruler of your household. It looks like the other 50% of the genes of your child disagrees.
Nobody who is Buddhist prays to the Buddha... Shakyamuni Buddha was merely a teacher, there are many Buddhas too.
The grandmother should have very little to say about what a man teaches his own child.
