I see all of you say "I throw bibles away when they are given to my children because I don't want Christians shoving their religious agenda down their throats"

Isn't refusing your child to even own a bible pushing Atheism on your children? Do you give them the choice to explore Christianity or do not introduce them to anything but Atheism?

ETA: In the first line "I see a lot of you" instead of "I see all of you", for the technical touchy responders (;

 I am not an Athiest, I am really not anything. My children probably don't even know what a bible or God is, for I've just never spoken about any of it. If they received a bible they would probably toss it aside themselves.

My son has been exposed to many religions and believes in god. I want him to form his own beliefs. I doubt he even knows I'm atheist.

So you're not going to reveal any kind of belief system to your children so that they can make their own choice?

I will let my kid check all that stuff out when she is old enough to understand it.

I don't let them have other books that discuss rape, prostitution, infanticide and genocide, either. 

I will take them to any church, temple, synagogue or mosque in which they express and interest.

Not an atheist, but if my child expressed an intrest in Christianity, or any religion, I won't keep that from my kids. But it has to be something they want, not something someone pushes on them (not saying that every time a bible is given to my kids religion is being pushed on them)
