DH is non religious and was watching Reigilous a couple days ago.
(Bill Maher's take on the current state of world religion)
Has anyone seen that?

Well that's too bad for:

#1 Watching Bill Maher
#2 He's non-religious

Good luck with that.

@jax:

I agree.. Just wondering if anyone had seen his documentary. My husband pretty much thinks just like him when it comes to religion. Makes it hard to raise religious kids. I took my step-daughter to church with me and she has NO faith. He says "It's not because of me. I let her decide I didn't push her eitherway."
Which is a false statement.
He has more knowledge of the bible than I do. He has studied many religions. He just doesn't believe. It really bothers me. It is our biggest problem.
It's hard to handle..

It's easy to see why it would bother you, but just let it be a separate part of your lives that you both respect.

Continue taking your daughter to church events and what-not.  If she finds her faith, that's up to her, not you.  All you can do is show her another side of the equation.  It's totally 100% up to her.

The most important thing for both of you, and not just him, is to respect each others faith (or lack of it).  Disrespect will rub off on the children, which is never a good thing.

Good luck!

I can sympathize with you.  My dh is a scientist.  He bases his opinions on fact.  So religion is a hard thing for him.  Well it was before we had kids, and once you have one that is sick and all you can do is pray, you do have a bit of an ah ha moment.  Having faith gives you hope when there is none to be had from anywhere else.

His faith has never been huge, but that has never wavered mine.  I knew how he was before we married.  And I also let him know that once we had kids we were going to raise them Catholic and he was going to have to be involved.  And that is what we have done.  He goes to church with us, and never says anything negative about religion to the boys.  

There are just some things you can't explain, not thru science or anything else.    And like it or not, there is just something nice about being able to pray and believe.  I can't imagine going thru life without that hope.  

And no way I'd want that for my kids.  They are going to be free to  practice whatever religion they want when they are 18.  They may even decide not to believe.  But at least I am giving them the foundation they will need for later in their lives now.  

But like jax said it all comes down to respect.  I can disagree with my dh, and he can disagree with me, but he knows he can't change my mind, and he respects that.   And he understood before we got married that any children we had were going to be raised in a Christian home.  This was a line in the sand deal breaker for me.

“There is no religion without love,
and people may talk as much as
they like about their religion, but
if it does not teach them to be good
and kind to man and beast,
it is all a sham.”
