People's faith means different things to different people, I don't think this makes them any 'less' catholic just different perhaps.
I was raised catholic, took all the sacraments and I'm now atheist. I don't think catholics should judge other catholics for 'not being the right kind of catholic'.

Absolutely I will. If my children can't say "Hail Satan" clearly and with emphasis by the time they're 4, they'll be sacrificed to him.
No. My faith is my faith. If my kids want to know about it, they can ask me and I'll talk to them. But it's not my job to force my kids into my beliefs. It's up to them to make their own choices.

In answer to the OP I won't 'impose' any sort of religious education onto my child.
I think as parents we impose all sorts of things on them all the time - be it spiritual, cultural or with our values and beliefs.
Naturally if you are from a religious family then this is what you believe is the truth so you would probably raise your child to believe this too.

I will teach them about different schools of thought and let them choose. I'm agnostic, but will probably send them to a Christian school (for the discipline and sporting/music programs - all independent schools seem to be religious), so they will be exposed to Christian beliefs. I will ensure they learn about other religions and belief systems also, including humanism/ agnosticism/ atheism.
