How/When DO you bring up religion...

to your kids? The recent message stream that began with our friend and her frustration with seeing a need to be "PC" in front of the religious world got me thinking about this.
My son will start Kindergarten next month at a public grade school. He just turned 5 and we have NEVER discussed religion with him. It has just never come up. We do have some in our family who are very religious but it is just never part of our gatherings.
I live in Louisville, KY and although it is the most progressive part of the state, religion still reigns here. As I read over posts and responses to the "PC" thread I started to wonder if I have done Cole an injustice by not at least mentioning the existence of Christianity to him. My plan was to let him bring it up but now I am concerned that he will be blind sided at school by classmates.
I guess it won't be a HUGE topic in Kindergarten so maybe I am just borrowing trouble here. My question to all of you is, what did YOU do to prepare your kids as they ventured out into the school world? Did you just let them come to you with the inevitable questions or did you start up a conversation with them before hand?
With school starting in a little over a month I guess I dont have much time to work religion talks into our routine but if I need to I will find a way.
What do y'all think? Thanks in advance for your input!
