No two contradictory ideas can be true at the same time and in the same respect. Therefore, no clear thinking atheist (or Christian for that matter) would argue that they raise their children in a non-biased household when it comes to matters of religion, ethics or healthy behavior. I do agree however that healthy, clear thinking people aspire to raise their children to be free thinkers, and as an atheist I will encourage my children to learn and respect the teachings of Jesus, especially what is taught in the Book of Thomas, but to not buy in to the hocus pocus of the church. I will encourage my children to learn from all philosophers who have something meaningful to say about the human experience and to shun those who preach hate and intolerance. Speaking of hocus pocus, here is my favorite summary of the magical portions of the church:

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
