Hattip to the ever reticent Lads and Lasses at Lair of the Catholic Cavemen. Stanford Nutting and his misadventures are brought to you by the ever-talented folks at Theater of the Word Incorporated. All of this brought me bad flash-backs to the Seventies, when my tuition money was wasted in too many classes conducted as group encounter sessions rather than instruction on the purported subjected matter. As for religious education, I remember an old priest I knew at the time who told me that most religious instruction as then constituted would come close to mortal sin if the extreme stupidity behind it did not vitiate the necessary mental state. I do not think that the situation has improved overall in either sacred or profane education.
