There is no sufficient reason to keep a child from his father. The argument that EJ is a bad father doesn't work because he has been a great father to Johnny and Sydney as of late. And he had no intention of taking the baby from Nicole. In the beginning he only asked her to raise the child with him. Nicole & Rafe had no logical reason to think EJ would take the child. And did Rafe ever consider the well-being of the child? What if the child got sick and needed blood? What then? They never considered what was best for the child. They used that child out of jealousy and spite - neither of which are sufficient reasons to lie about a child's paternity and both are downright hypocritical.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
I'm not disputing that Rafe sucks, but the guy didn't jump in and randomly decide that some random person didn't have a right to their child. It's EJ. The guy who was part of the scheme to kidnap Rafe, erase his memories, and put an imposter in his place. He has a valid basis for his views on the guy. He's not making judgments from on high, he's making judgments based on things that were done to HIM. I don't find it arrogant. Hell, it's not even illegal unless you want to make a conspiracy case regarding the paternity tests. Which, again, I'm not sure is even a crime. Daniel could lose his license for a violation of ethics, but I'm not sure what crime was committed. I'd have to look that one up.
In any case, Rafe has as much right to play God as anybody on this show who has ever kept a paternity secret does. Which is to say both as much as right as circumstances have granted them -- or none at all -- depending on whether you like the character or don't (or whether you like the character being deceived or don't).
I'd agree with you BUT Rafe did make the decision about Grace before knowing EJ so that argument really doesn't stand up completely. He NOW has reason's but his first go round he played GOD.
Because Sami wanted him to and she spoke about EJ as if he was the devil to Rafe. This time he had sufficient reason but last time he gave his word to Sami and she encouraged it
