I have mixed with Christians for most of my life and I have never heard of a Christian couple not letting their child play with children of non believing parents.

I think you read my post wrong.
The idea of having an atheist coming out day is madness.

As for what you said, I am past caring what people think of me.

I think that depends a lot on where you live. The UK is very different from the US on this.

Atheis coming out day today, show your “colors” .....

This would be the one time I actually would care to see the "I don't choose to Identify" people show up.

Honestly ....... who cares!

We have. One of my eldest's best friend's parents did not allow said friend to hang out with my child anymore when they found out he was not Christian. He felt badly for his friends. Thought his Mom was a raging hypocrite. Living with her man, unmarried, having divorced twice. But her kid could not play with the heathen. When the kids were smaller, we home schooled. Most of the local home school required I sign a statement of faith before we could join. That your fellows often don't follow your path is a fact.

Sounds more like an ******* than a Christian to me.

Hint: There is a lot of them out there, of all colors, shapes, sizes...and religions.

What a ****ty thing to do.

Of course. It is the same with any group who claims they speak for everyone who professes the same.

Yes I agree, although I do know quite a few really lovely American Christians.

That lady certainly doesn't practise her own faith.

I loved that kid. But I can't say I miss his mother.
