My wording was a little unfortunate -- what I meant was that I grew up with a religious background, and I didn't mean to say am different from my parents in this respect, so I learnt those two declensions already when I was a child. As I said in my other mail, I intended to say that those, who did not grow up in a religious background or for whom religion doesn't matter anyway are *perhaps* more likely not to care for this peculiarity of German as she is spoke -- and this is a purely subjective conclusion.
