My obsevant Catholic father, for instance.
He’d married a Methodist woman and she, I think, persuaded him to start my older sister and, two years later, me in a public school’s kindergarten. Decades later I learn that when we were almost through our third and first grades respectively, America’s bishops announced that the highest duty of Catholic parents is to take their children out of public schools.
Suddenly she and I are not in school and have to wait until September to start those grades again in the nearby Catholic school.
How does Catholic education make kids into slaves? What contributes to their success?

"The beginning of wisdom is found in doubting; by doubting we come to the question, and by seeking we may come upon the truth."
And you've been making your corner of the world a decidedly better place, with those and your other questions!
Thank you, Grinning Cat!
Tom, some time back, you commented on the following elsewhere on A|N:
Deny religion the ability to use shame, fear, or guilt, and you've basically eviscerated its ability to manipulate or control you … or anyone else.
Those three tools are the RCC's primary stock in trade:
That is how the Catholic Church "educates" the young of its flock, and it is those practices which need to be STOPPED.
Loren, you named them! STOP SHAME, FEAR, and GUILT.
In the OED: from the Greek for “runaway slave”.
