7 year old center of mom/dad religious controversy

Question

I am a practicing Catholic, and am trying to raise my children Catholic. My husband is not, and although he agreed to raising children Catholic when we got engaged, he has not been supportive in my efforts, and actually says in front of my 7 year old that "he doesn't have to go if he doesn't want to." I realize this is very much a marital issue, but do you have any suggestions about handling the situation with my son? He doesn't want to go to CCD (Faith formation classes) and battles me every week. It's a battle I feel I am losing, and it breaks my heart.
