Rzeznik Recommends Kids Have Tough Catholic Upbringing

Subscribe to Goo Goo Dolls alerts

Goo Goo Dolls rocker JOHN RZEZNIK feels troublesome kids should be given a taste of religious schooling because he was terrified of getting beaten by the nuns who taught him. The Iris singer had a strict Catholic school upbringing, but it made him respect authority and family values. He says, "I still flinch every time I see a nun. They would whoop your ass and then they'd call your parents and tell them why they'd whoop your ass and you'd go home and your parents would whoop your ass! "You read these things about kids bringing guns to school and I would never be caught dead with a gun at Corpus Christi grammar school because I would be afraid that the nun would take it away from me and pistol whip me."

I think the nuns have become soft since then Johnny. In fact, you're hard pressed to find a nun in Catholic Schools anymore. It is still a great place to instill family values in children so in that, I agree with you plus you do get a great education in a private setting.
