    always have.  It's kinda sad, really. I got a great, thought-provoking education in Catholic schools (60's) and so did my kids (80's).  They didn't even focus much on the sin-as-sex stuff.

    I shudder to think what the lunatic bishops might do to what has long been an excellent academic tradition.

    •  The Sisters gave me to think of Genesis as Story-- (0+ / 0-)

      presented by the Divine in a form humans could grasp. And as you got older, you were expected to realize how much myth and poetry was involved.

      Genesis is full of concepts we all argue about to this day. Free will, sin and punishment, the existence of a particular Enemy of God, suffering, man's relationship to nature, whether other potentially free-willed creatures (such as angels) exist, etc.
