What was your religious upbringing? We know you're an atheist now... But before you thought for yourself, what religion failed at brainwashing you?

I was raised catholic. I started to pull away from the church when I watched the documentary The Burning Times for school. I made the decision that I didn't want to be a part of organizations that had witch hunts. Then I started learning about other cultures and their religions by taking anthropology classes. I began to question what made my beliefs more valid then theirs. I also questioned the inconsistencies between facts and what the bible states. It was a slow process for me.
