  1. I'd just like to comment on your discussion of "vaccinating" your children, which I think is a wonderful idea. I'd been doing this for some time with my own daughters, and I've always used that same phrase: "vaccinating". I've discovered that the Unitaritan Universalists have an educational program called "Neighboring Faiths", which I have my 7th grader participating in right now, and which I recommend highly. They spend a class session learning about a religion, then often in a following week they make a visit. So far my daughter has been to a Hindu Temple, 2 different Buddhist temples, and an Islamic center. Last week they had a Wiccan guest speaker. I can't wait to see what they will do in the spring, but I am hoping they visit a Mega-church, a Mormon Church and a Synagogue at the very least. In my area this is taught in 7th grade, which seems a good time for this kind of thing, a time when the kids are old enough to think through a lot of issues for themselves. A lot of adults I have spoken to about this program have immediately said "wow, I need a class like that too!"
