plus, no one is born catholic..

people who say they went to catholic school as some sort of "i know the faith trump card" are usually the most ignorant.

Yes, you're right.  I think people have this perception that being Catholic is like an ethnicity; something that comes with birth.  What they don't really get is that it starts with acknowledgement of a specific set of beliefs but also the continual growth and development of faith.  Birth, or short term education, doesn't cover all that there is to being 'Catholic'.  These variables may place a person in a family tied to that religion or act a supplement but it is up to the individual to study and investigate Catholicism.
