Professional scowler Pete Hamill is quoted by the New York Times:

"They [the Catholic elementary schools] had a kind of madrassa in the morning: 'Hail Mary, full of grace.' It's like these kids you see in Pakistan learning things by rote. But I ended up in a Jesuit high school and the Jesuits have one thing they gave to everybody who's ever gone to one of these schools: doubt. They've probably created more atheists than communism ever did, and standards of excellence that none of us can ever approach."

I doubt that.
