. The pre-baby-boom generation did not judge the Catholic school as harshly as is being done on here.
That just shows you how brainwashed they had you back then Pol.
You have lived with it your entire life.
What is so 'harshly' about sharing our horror stories and abuse of our Catholic education ?
I am sure it happened prior 1946 also as that is how "they" controlled the people of the Church back then is with fear, embarrassment and guilt.
In first grade when a six year old wet their pants the Nun would hang them over the radiator to stink up the classroom as they dried to instill embarrassment in the child until the poor little buttons cried and no longer wanted to come to school.
And that big stiff pointer that was used as a switch to instill fear.
Or posting in the Church bulletin every year how much each member donated in their Church envelope over the course of the year to instill guilt and embarrassment.
I think we should go on sharing these vicious barbaric tactics used back then by the Church that are no longer tolerated by the parishes.
It is good therapy to get it out and laugh about the abuse we took because we were so brainwashed that we thought it was normal and acceptable.
