"We should no more allow parents to teach their children to believe, for example, in the literal truth of the Bible or that planets rule their lives, than we should allow parents to knock their children's teeth out."
What do you think about someone saying this?

I agree with the point but the analogy is harsh. I wouldn't compare it to knocking teeth out. I would say that parents have no more right to choose their children's spiritual path than they have to choose their career.

I think teaching children about religion is far different then choosing their religion.
Indoctrination is far different than teaching.
