Maybe Hindus don't teach their children that the choice is theirs? I don't know, and neither do you.<quoted text>
Of course they made their own choices. Of course they did.
But had you been a Hindu, my guess is, they would all be of the Hindu faith.
They would not be Wiccans.
The fact is that my kids always knew the choice was theirs. Always.
Just because someone is raised in a religion, doesn't mean they stay in it. But just because someone stays, doesn't mean they weren't given a choice.
