    There was a British film about a borstal in the 1970s “Scum” and I recall that religious attendance featured in that also, in Britain in the 1970s. Religion was probably seen as putting order and structure on those in difficult situations.

    Oh right… I was initially outraged by the thought of people being sent to prison for not going to mass. Then I realised they weren’t proper people. They were workhouse men. I think ‘fear of God’ was, like, one of the main rules of the workhouse. Bad men, these guys. Hope they got solitary.

    Fear him people… For he is Lord. And he doth imprison fellows who say anything to the contrary.

      PS No abortions. Life of the child is sacred etc. etc.

      It becomes a person when the bible says it becomes a person.

    And religious orders continued to prescribe the punishment to absconders…well up until the 1980s. Refuse any part of religious protocol in a Catholic school and you’d soon smart.
