Child Custody & Visitation - Exposure to the Religious Practices of Both Parents in Florida Children may be exposed to the religious practices of both parents. "The parties disagree regarding the religious upbringing of the children. The mother wishes to raise the children in the Catholic faith, which is inconsistent with the father's beliefs, or according to the mother, his lack thereof. Without a showing of harm to the children, the court should not infringe on either parent's free exercise of his or her religious beliefs. Mesa v. Mesa, 652 So. 2d 456,457 (Fla. 4th DCA 1995). The court should not preclude either party from exposing the children to his or her religious practices absent a clear, affirmative showing that the religious activities are harmful to the children." Winters v. Brown
