It was really hard for him to accept the Catholic religion. Behind it all, McCourt wasn’t a fan of his religion overall, because of the roles that played in church and school, also when no one not even some priests were willing to understand and listen to him except one. It took him until his late teens to want to confess to anything he did.
The main premise of the Catholic upbringing is “do what is good without questioning” (Lodge 3). One of the problems with this premise is the concept of “good”. Catholics students are supposed to “set an example to other young people by their purity of mind and body” (Lodge 27), however, it is impossible to stick to all the rules of purity because that is “against human nature, especially where sex [is] concerned” (Lodge 39). Young people have problem deciphering what is good due to lack of knowledge.

Private and religious schools operate somewhat differently. The public has less say, and the state government cannot tell a school such as the private Christian school, Republic School, to not ban books. The school board should still think over the arguments for banning books and their flaws. One argument is that “It is difficult to understand how a school board and administration that claims to be Christian… expose children to such immoral and vulgar material” (Source A). This person argues that certain books go against Christian values, so it should be banned, along with any similar book.
“One other dimension of Gatsby 's early, striving is revealed to Nick at the funeral by the grieving father, who lauds his son 's generosity to him.

Fundamentalism, which in religion is taking literal the text of a holy book, affects childhood in various negatives (and positive) ways. It leaves critical thinking skills underdeveloped and causes many children to be afraid of punishment or judgment if they detract from the religion. In addition, many children are kept isolated and have to learn social skills, and how to enjoy things their peers have already discovered. In the few positive ways it affects people in the religion, fundamentalism can teach discipline and regard for rules. Fundamentalism leaves little room for questions, which are regarded as heretical or a sign of disbelief.
