My parents took me to church since i can remember and one thing is clear, Gods words stick to you, so when you are of age, you remember all the Bible stories and then you can make a choice on weather to follow Christ or not.
If you are being preached the wrong thing, than, your ideals will also, show thru your actions. Hate is as strong as Love, it just depend on what you are feeling. Obama heard about hate one to many times and part of what we see in him has to do with this matter. One really have to love this country in order to defend it.
