    Ela is such a pretty name. In Hebrew, Ela is a variant of Eliana/Elyanah (אליאנה) and means “God has answered”

    My dear, I read the entire article, and I brought up the issue as a poll to see what the readership here thinks of the issue. The fact that this issue has been settled, no I did not know that, and it's irrelevant to the general ethical and legal question that this article brings up.

    If you have an opinion on this type of issue, by all means vote, my dear. If you merely want to score points in your little grudge, that is sad, and I wish you well...

    Both parents should be allowed to expose the child to their respective religions.

    Neither parent should be allowed to abuse a child in this way, it's development should not be stunted by superstition.

    I agree, and on a side note - I find it overwhelmingly sad that 'parents' aren't more adult than this when dealing with their children. And we wonder why we have the problems with kids today that we do... take a look at the parents and the answer is right in front of us.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Very very true. My parents used me as a weapon in their divorce. It's a big drag for the kids to be caught in these immature antics.

    Basically, when you marry someone who converts just to please you and your parents, so he can marry you and get in your panties regularly, then you get divorced, there's a good chance he'll fall away from his new found faith. Don't be surprised if he rediscovers his/her own religious roots.

    Incidentally, most Catholic priests will not baptize under the circumstances described in the article. The whole process is highly bureaucratic and regulated by canon law, which, if I'm not mistaken does not baptize a baby against the will of one of the parents.
