Over Thanksgiving dinner, Archie argues with Mike over whether his and Gloria's baby should be baptised and raised as a Christian; Mike and Gloria feel their child should be allowed to choose his own faith when he is old enough to decide for himself.


If it's a major holiday and Archie and Mike are sitting at the table, it's sure to mean one thing: verbal fireworks. This time, the holiday is Thanksgiving and the topic is the religion of the Stivics' unborn baby. Archie wants to raise his grandchild as a Christian; Mike suggests that the child will make the decision when he or she is old enough to.
