Should minor children be allowed to decide for themselves whether or not to attend religious services or should their parents decide?
If the parents are of faith and go to church, then they should bring their young children with them to give them a base of learning on religion from which to decide.

Also, if, when the young children become older, they decide they prefer to try another faith, then they should be allowed that choice, too.
