A 50+ Ex-Catholic Finds Vinidcation
7 June 2003 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

No one *believes* me when I say this was what the Catholic church was really like when I grew up -- in the initial review I read her, Sister Mary was referred to as "fanatical" -- not so, in my experience. *All* the nuns I knew were exactly like her, spouting the same illogic with such sincerity. And when you start hearing this rubbish as age 5 or younger, what do you know?

I have referred to the movie over and over again to my friends. Is it possibly available on tape? I'd love to get a copy!
