catholic private schools teachings

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.

  • I went to Catholic school from kindergarten until I graduated high school and I was never taught that. We were basically taught that Protestants were following the "wrong" path but that it was their choice to make.
    I'm not Catholic or Christian so it never really mattered to me.

    Awfully judgmental comment for one complaining about others judging.

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

  • op here

    First off, i didnt make the anon comment about being "high and mighty" haha. Most of my family is catholic, so I dont think that at all! I was just simply wondering if this is actually taught or not. And thank you to those of you who posted real answers :)

  • I went to a Catholic school for 9 years and the school never taught that. There are some people, in every religion/faith, that believe their religion/faith is the only one and that others aren't true Christians unless they are of that religion.
