What stood out first was that so many people here said reading the Old Testament drove them from their religion.
"So that's why we in Catholic schools didn't read it. Starting in first grade we studied the Catachism and nuns told us to take our questions to a priest. And in upper grades, so many times as I walked past Protestant churches, I saw the titles of sermons I wanted to hear. But going to any of them would have been a mortal sin."
