Grew up roman catholic
Was basically dragged to church, went through confession, and confirmation, and when I was about 12 stopped going to church.
Politically my mother was not active and did not discuss politics
Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?
*edit* Just realized this! My wife is catholic and is always complaining that my mom doesnt like her, not really true but it could explain why my mother is less than super warm with her.
The main reason though is that my mom is partially deaf and my wife is a quiet speaker this tends to make my wife think she is being ignored when really my mom has no clue she is being talked to.

A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Next to the last one. Politics was never discussed in our house although I know my parents voted religiously. They let me free to form my own political believes even when I chose to back Eisenhower in 1956. Now remember I am talking Georgia here one of the homes of the yellow dog democrats. . Religious conversations, no again although for awhile I did go to church twice a month so I could play on its softball team. Now that is fast pitch.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
They seemed mostly content with finding an "appropriate" place to raise kids and letting the neighbors and church do the work. So they told me what to believe (ended up rejecting most all of it), but there wasn't much discussion of it in the house. They just wanted to mostly watch tv and not bother with political rants or anything serious.
None of those options fit, but the last is closest.
We were not told to believe anything, but we were encouraged towards similar beliefs. Politics were discussed less often, at least recent politics (read: not history).
I was homeschooled, so basically our place doubled as a classroom, in some ways.

I own the house I was raised in. 7 kids (I was the last), 2 foster brothers, and whoever was related or not who needed to stay somewhere for a while. Sure seemed big when I was a kid, now it is just me and my dog.....

I was a kid during the Carter years, it was easy to see what bad democratic leadership meant to a family living off a teacher's salary and a stove plant job.
Where is the "None of the Above" option?
I've actually been more involved in religion and politics than my parents and, in several ways, I've actually influenced them more than they have me. Our beliefs are similar though.
