Nah.  Using your own words, you would be exposing your child to an
atmosphere with a particular view of religion, namely, that it is
irrelevant.  Lots of agnostics and atheists turn to religion so your
child may choose to reject your view of religion.  It is disingenuous to
claim that your child-rearing would be neutral regarding religion.
