You only need authority because you're terrified of what you would do without it, so you project YOUR choices into others assuming they would choose the same actions.Last I checked, parents ARE authoritarian figures.
That is part of the massive responsibility of being a parent—-being the authority figure to whom your child must answer to.
If your child doesn’t respect your authority, he will never respect authority figures when he’s older and that can potentially ruin his life as an adult, since we continue to answer to authority throughout our lives (police, elders, bosses, etc), and finally, and most importantly, we answer to the ultimate authority....God.
Know this: just because you do not believe in God, that will not exempt you from His judgment. You may find God/religion a humorous mockery now & foolishly teach your child the same, but there WILL come a day when you will grieve to your soul that you did not heed our warnings but then it will be too late.

Your accusation that I would teach my child to laugh at religion is completely ridiculous and unsurprisingly you have totally missed the point I was making. My son would probably find humor in religion simply because he finds humor in just about EVERYTHING except things that are hurtful to others. His sillyness and sense of humor brightens my whole life and I would never change a thing about it!
