We all say we want to raise our children to be think for themselves. I admire how one of our members, Fivel Rothberg, gives his son the freedom to experience the world and his own choices with acceptance and without judgement. Enjoy Fivel’s guest post about how proud he is of his son. -M.S.
As the father of a 13-year-old self-proclaimed Satanist, I can honestly say I’m proud of my son Noam. His beliefs are at once jokingly provocative and seemingly serious. He says that he doesn’t believe in God, but does believe in Satan, “because Satan is cooler. And if you think about it Satan is actually ‘good’ because he’s punishing bad people, right?” He’s got a point. To me his Satanism is like a person trying on a wild-looking hat out in public, to see what the reactions will be.
