Re: As a father...
life is complicated. take them to church. put the fear(love) of god into them.

this all would have made no sense to me for the majority of my life, but now it's the only thing that makes any sense to me.
any other explanation falls short of explaining life. i have a hard time accepting religion but when things are really messed up it makes more sense. i really wish we all had blind faith at birth to make life so much simpler.
having faith may be the best example a father can have for their child. my own lack of faith is one of the reasons i've chosen not to have kids yet. i feel for your struggle.
