i don't owe to teach my kids about religion - because knowing about religion will not make them a better/worst member of society. i owe my kids morals, values, decent social skills "at least enough to get by in this life" and MOST of all a decent education. THESE are the things that are going to determine their quality of life and them becoming productive members of society, these are the ingredients that will help steer them in the right direction to live a happy life and be self sufficient. religion is just a side dish > who so ever wishes to participate go right ahead - nothing more nothing less.

No, and no. I choose to teach my kids about other faiths because it interests me also and I think we should have a solid understanding of others because with global communication technology we need to have basic understanding of cultures so we can communicate and work better with each other.
