I Think you're both partially right.  No one goes off just because of hsshkafic issues. But if they had a positive experience with yidishkiet the tavos wouldn't lead them off either.
I think JJ is saying there's a certain class of Ta'avos that you would need an EXTREMELY strong Hashkafa to keep you in (and even then there are no guarantees...)

What is a kaf?

Different concave receptacles can be called "kaf."
A spoon, or the palm of your hand, or the tray of a scale.

Hence it depends on the context. Judgment goes on a scale, blood goes in a spoon...

I heard a vort (but since I only heard it and didn't see it in a reputable sefer I will NOT say it b'sheim "omro") that if you would be mesareis an epikoros he would become ois-epikoros.

There are some things even the most liberal Rabbi's do not allow. There is also a reason majority of OTD's are single people...

If it was based on hashkafa that shouldn't change being married with a family or not...
Bad argument. It's far more difficult to go otd when married with children, regardless of the reason.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Yes but what does staying on the derech because of your children say about your personal hashkofos and relationship with Hashem....

Is OTD just for Judaism?
I just found a new supply of forks!

Would have to ask the op what his original intentions where, but I've been assuming yes.
