My step family is catholic and stepsister went to a private catholic school. I was raised protestant. She would always tell me that I wasnt Christian because I wasnt catholic.. just wondering if this was her personal opinion or if the schools actually teach this?
No it's not usually taught at all. I attended 12 years of Catholic schools, my children currently attend Catholic schools. In fact, such an idea goes against what the Catholic Church teaches. Anyone baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (with the proper understanding of the Holy Spirit) is considered a Christian by the Catholic church. That's why if a baptized Protestant converts to Catholicism they are not rebaptized. Their baptism is valid and we need only one baptism.

Op, not of course it's not typical. That girl is just expressing her personal opinion. As for some of these other comments...
