Instead of teaching that other spiritual paths are "wrong" or against your god? This sounds so egotistical to me....it appears more about being "Right, right, right....and everyone else is wrong, wrong wrong." What do you gain from teaching your kids this, aside from indoctrinating ONE way of thinking and fear of thinking otherwise?

OP, I don't think there is anything wrong with teaching our children about other religions and to respect the faiths of others. I'm doing that with my girls. My older daughter tells me daily that one of her classmates, or another, is trying to convert her to Christianity. I tell my daughter that the other girl's faith is important to her, and when she says, "No, thanks", it should be done with respect--just as we want our views (as agnostics) to be respected.
