Not things that are questions of faith, but things that are factually incorrect - things like the Holocaust never happened, this was intended to be a Christian nation, Under God was always in the pledge, all Muslims are terrorists, dinosaur bones are fake - if someone is intentionally and deliberately misleading a child with things like this, or teaching them intentionally incorrect history (like saying Islam has no connection to Judaism and Christianity), aren't they essentially disabling their child to cope in the real world? What's the difference between indoctrinating a child with factually incorrect information like this, and other countries teaching their children that other nationalities or religions want to kill them?
It's not a free speech issue - if you repeatedly call your child stupid and worthless, you are considered abusive, even though you are "free" to call people and things stupid and worthless.

There are people that believe we live inside Earth and that pictures from space are a government conspiracy. Do I think it's abuse? No. Are they teaching their kids dumb things? yes. while I object to this ignorance, I do believe it falls under free speech. The Constitution protects ignorant buttheads as well as educated individuals.
