The type of extreme/insane Catholicism we were subjected to was Jasenism!
According to WIKI - Jansenism was a Christian theological movement, primarily in France, that emphasized original sin, human depravity, the necessity of divine grace, and predestination. The movement originated from the posthumously published work of the Dutch theologian Cornelius Jansen, who died in 1638. It was first popularized by Jansen's friend Jean du Vergier, Abbé de Saint-Cyran, and after Saint-Cyran's death in 1643 was led by Antoine Arnauld. Through the 17th and into the 18th centuries, Jansenism was a distinct movement within the Catholic Church. The theological centre of the movement was the Parisian convent of Port-Royal, which was a haven for writers including Saint-Cyran, Arnauld, Pierre Nicole, Blaise Pascal, and Jean Racine.
Jansenism was opposed by many in the Catholic hierarchy, especially the Jesuits. Although the Jansenists identified themselves only as rigorous followers of Augustinism, Jesuits coined the term "Jansenism" to identify them as having Calvinist affinities. The papal bull Cum occasione, issued by Pope Innocent X in 1653, condemned five cardinal doctrines of Jansenism as heresy — especially the relationship between human free will and efficacious grace, wherein the teachings of Augustine, as presented by the Jansenists, contradicted the teachings of the Jesuit School. Jansenist leaders endeavored to accommodate the pope's pronouncements while retaining their distinctives, and enjoyed a measure of peace in the late 17th century under Pope Clement IX. However, further controversy led to the bull Unigenitus, issued by Pope Clement XI in 1713, which marked the end of Catholic toleration of Jansenist doctrine.
How did we end up having it forced upon us? Was it through our priests having to be educated in France for the most part?
As Brown Mickey McQuaid rather famously said in the aftermath of Vatican 2, nothing has changed!
As a sixteen year old child I was quized by a redneck perverted bitter scumbag of a priest in his 70s in a confession box in Knock about my masterbatory activities. How often do you let the nature flow out of your body? Does there ever be a girl there with you to give you more pleasure out of it?
My point is that with pure evil tossers like those in abundance, psychosexually damaging children and women, how big a jump was it for many of them to actual do it! NONE at all! This kind of behaviour is indicative of people who are a very real danger to children! And of course according to their own rules, the thought is as bad as the deed, so there you are!
