I, unfortunately went to Catholic school from grades K-11 (elementary school from 79'-86'). The nun's we had were old school (real old school), and they're the one's that told us if we missed mass it was considered "Mortal Sin", and if we died with "Mortal Sin" on our souls, then we would go to hell. The only way to get rid of mortal sin was to go to confession. Obviously, after growing up, I realized that those old, crabby ass nun's were full shit. We used to get buzz cuts so the nun's would quit pulling our hair, so they started yanking us by the ties. I'm still looking for the t-shirt "Catholic School Survivor". After my experience with Catholic Schools, I will never send my kids to a Catholic School.
