I sit corrected.  Perhaps I misremembered my friend's stating the origin of

As my friend also did with our friends, though not in bars.  He got really
offended when people acted like the Church was still the Pre-Reformation

subject away from other things.  ("Hey, Patrick, is it true the Church says
that all non-Catholics are going to Hell?")
