2) You are, by the standards the church would ideally enforce, a bad catholic. As recently as my grandparents adult life (and in some places it is still current) the church made dramatically greater demands of its flock with the expectation they would be obeyed & the preparedness to use some pretty nasty tactics to get there. I sincerely hope you are not reading your current version of catholicism back into pre-medieval times.
I don't have the time or resources currently to correct all the mistakes & misguided assumptions that underpin your use of Australia as an example. You clearly didn't understand my reference even slightly (everything I mentioned was taking place in the 19th century & had little to do with the forced adoption policies of another century). Can I politely suggest you change examples to something you are better informed about. Whatever point you are trying to make this example is undermining it. Colonial authorities actively assisted in the religious indoctrination of indigenous Australians.Certainly the British colonists in Australia forced aboriginal adoption in the 1950s but this was not an 'imperialist plan', merely a misguided attempt at homogenisation; 'education is profitable' etc.
