Exposing Children to Other Religions?

My boyfriend occasionally gets called up by one of his former priests (he used to be Catholic, actually considered bein a priest himself) to come into the youth groups and teach about his religion. He is, what I like to call, a Druid recon of the highest caliber. They're reasoning behind this is two-fold. The first being that they want to teach the children about other religions to help foster tolerance. Many times people are less intolerant if they understand something. The other reason is that they believe that a lot of people leave their original faith because they want to know what's out there. Maybe by educating them about what is out there, they'll be more likely to stay with the religion they were raised with.

Would you be willing to teach others about your religion like this? Do you think it's a good idea to expose children to all forms of religion?
