The right is pushing religion on children and brainwashing them which is child abuse as well, but that's another discussion.
True but the item here is scope. Religious indoctrination of children is widespread. The example you gave of child abuse is not a widespread problem (thankfully)

You do have a good point there.

Hopefully you guys agree to not indoctrinate  your kids with the Judeo-Christian "corrupted" form of morality either. You're more influenced by it than you may realize. ;)

I was certainly influenced by the same Zoroastrian moral code that influenced Judaism which then later influenced Christianity.  These things are passed down to us through the culture.   That doesn't mean that your god exists.

Oh, Jesus most certainly existed. Almost all scholars agree with that. The real question was if the Resurrection occurred. ;)

But, if God exists and He is at least somewhat responsible for our conscience, it makes sense that people throughout time would have discovered that. We'll call it the Moral Law. 

As the stone age book says:

"Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the work of the Law is written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts either accusing or defending them."
