I've decided...

I've decided to join the Catholic church.  I believe it is the one and only true church, and I believe that everyone should join the Catholic church.  I'm especially worried about my grandchildren.  I know this is the church they should be members of but their parents are Mormon and don't agree with me.

I feel really strongly about this, so I've come up with a plan to convert my grandchildren to Catholicism.  When their parents aren't in the room I'm going to tell them about how wonderful the Catholic church is.   I'll compare it to their parents' church and show them how much wiser it would be to attend a Catholic church.   I also plan to take them to church with me so that they can see first hand how much more fun it would be to attend church with the Catholics rather than with the Mormons.  I know their parents won't be happy about this, but I know being Catholic is the right choice for everyone.  I'm sorry that I have to undermine my daughter and son-in-law's parental authority, but they just don't understand how their choice to raise their children in the Mormon church is going to screw up the kids' lives.

No, I'm not going to join the Catholic church.

Go back and insert "public school" for Catholic church and "homeschool" for Mormon church.  See where I'm coming from? 
  1. Thank you to those of you who may not agree with homeshcool but are still supportive.
  2. If you do have a beef with homeschool, talk to me not my kids. Privately would be nice.
  3. I believe homeschool is a choice.  I do not believe it is better than public or private school.
  4. I will not try to talk your kids into choosing homeschool.  I trust your parental right to inspiration.  You know what school choice is right for each of your children.
