12 years of catholic school in Scotland. That’s enough to make you an atheist or a nun. My only regret is, when I was 16 my mum woke me up for Sunday mass, I told her I wasn’t going, she asked me if I was going to 11 or 12 o’clock mass. I told her I was never going to mass again. She cried, a year later she died, to this day I still feel guilt making my mum cry. The one thing I don’t regret is walking away from religion. I moved to the US in 1986 met and married a wonderful man. He went to catholic elementary school, he spent 30 years in the US military, he is a nascar fan, a redskins fan and a humanist. 24 years happily married. We both think atheism is the way to go.
