In Their Words: “I was a Catholic schoolboy all the way through high school, and then headed to the secular state university with a Jesus chip on my shoulder. The knock across the head came from a freshman year elective called ‘Religions of the World,’ which made it clear to me just how myopic my perspective was. I can respect the community fostering rituals inherent in much of my experience, but somewhere along the line, I’d convinced myself that my truth was the only truth. I wrote this song about a vague memory from first grade when art and religion came together to teach an unintended lesson, likely the most useful thing I learned in Catholic school.” — Andrew Duhon
