"In his homily, Benedict said parents should also refrain from 'moulding (their children) on the basis of their own ideas and desires'."Does this mean Pope Benny wants Catholic parents to stop bringing their children up as Catholics, instead allowing them to find their own way in life? Will we now see the closure of all those Catholic schools?
No. He was actually arguing that parents should have their children baptised and bring them up as Catholics, whether they themselves are religious or not. That is, ensure they're moulded with someone else's ideas, but not necessarily their own.
