← At religious campuses, atheist groups operate underground

A 'catholic school' is merely another limb of the institution's recruitment, indoctrination and management process; it would be surprising if their heirarchy sponsored an interest group that's spearheaded by intelligence and reason.

There's some validity (though it's a perversion atop a perversion) in the query 'why go to a catholic school if you're not catholic?' Though I can't put a number to it, comments from RD.net and elsewhere suggest that atheism is an emergant observation, frequently surfacing during our years in education. When the thuggery and buggery of the rcc loses influence and control (on society and individuals) atheism seems the most likely high ground on which to settle and observe 'enemy' maneouvring?

I can't help but chuckle at the notion they;d sponsor an islamic bomb factory whilst pour scorn on reasoned, intelligent, scientific and common sense interest groups.

But who'd expect reason from a cult of any stripe?
