And while they're at it, start teaching children about fallacies of logic at the same age.

All the gods belong in school, as part of History, Sociology or Cultural studies, where they can all be discussed as the fables they are in the correct context and/or as part of comparative religious studies.

As for teaching that one particular god or set of gods is true, fuck that very hard.
