Do parents in the Bible belt states force their children to attend the Sunday Mass at the Church ?
Also, why do some Christians enter certain particular Churches alone?

I've heard church attendance is down across the board.Now concerning the denominations some families are entrenched in certain ones for doctrinal reasons. They line up with certain teachings and reject others.Also in many families church attendance is required as parents want help with raising there children in a Godly manner.Now as certainly as The Spirit of God isn't in the denominations and organizations the younger people feel that and grow up to leave the churches.That is another reason attendance is lowering in this day. The final message is therefore come out from among them. People are leaving the dead denominations to find Bible believing and teaching churches. It is sad what has happened. That the churches line up with political correctness and thereby reject The Word of God. JBY

Christians do not practice Mass, so the question is moot.
As for the second part of the question, it is the Christian's right (at least for now) on where they chose to worship God.

only some Catholics, Orthodox, Lutheran and Episcopalian parents do so.
Other churches don't have Mass
and of course not all Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran and Episcopalian parents force their children to attend Sunday Mass.

They enter alone because they are NOT forcing anyone to attend with them or believe like they do. The point you may be missing is that many of those churches offer Bible study prior to the worship services, which gives their children an opportunity to discover what their parents religious beliefs are all about.

What is Mass? I don't know if any such thing in the Bible.

For one, I wish it were the Bible belt, as much as it is the religious belt. Also, Roman Catholics attend mass. The mass, transubstantiation, the eucharist... these things are Roman Catholic. The Sabbath is really sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, but we do a number of things in the United States, having their origins of Rome... from our government system, unbiblical holidays like Christmass (Saturnalia), Easter (Ishtar), having obelisks (symbols of Egypt) as steeples on congregational buildings, having government approved congregations (501c3), exchanging the Sabbath for Sunday (Sol Invictus), using the Gregorian Calendar, some having nicolaitane style heirarchical structures in the congregation...etc...

Yes, and parents all around the country do that too.

They also 'force' them to eat their vegetables and only poop in the toilet, those evil bastards.
Where do they get off? Children have rights too.

Plenty of believer parents force their children to hear religious dogma, not just in the South or just Christianity.

Bible and mass don't go together. There is no "mass" in the Bible.
Catholicism and orthodox are not Christian. Catholicism and orthodox lead to hell because they teach works for salvation. And catholicism and orthodox are filled with tons of other false doctrines, so get away from them.
Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.
The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death
