I’m an atheist because of a nun.
I went to Catholic school, Kindergarten until third grade.
One morning, when I was in first grade, I was called to the front of the class by the teacher, who was a nun. Three or four other students were called up as well.
Sister told the class that she hadn’t seen us at church the previous Sunday. I don’t remember what her point was for doing it.
All I remember thinking is ‘This is bullshit.”
I was 6 years old.
Don’t get me wrong. I didn’t have an epiphany. But it got the ball rolling.
