No mention of the devil or sin is made in the trial version.

And that's what dumbs it down?

simplicimus: To answer your question, infant baptism is a measure to keep dead infant's souls from going to hell by absolving them of original sin. It's an old practice from a time of much higher infant mortality rates than currently.

So innocent babies who die unbaptized are automatically hell-bound? That sounds brutal, even for Christians.

Dumb down?

I prefer the version of the baptism that has all my enemies murdered. Though that's more a Roman Catholic style baptism.
