Because nothing says 'Genius' like a cold dip in a brass dutch oven.

Well, at least he'll be invincible if he gets shot in the heel with an arrow.  And at the very least, this ritual will allow his parents to think they are now free to judge others and make excuses for their own horrific behavior.

Mouser: gweilo8888: Incidentally, the goal is not to "raise the child to eventually be able to answer for themselves" so much as it is to "raise the child to give the answer that's been drilled into them since childbirth". There's an important distinction here: One involves critical thinking, and the other involves rote learning or brainwashing, depending on the degree of indoctrination used.

Your issues with your parents are your problem, not mine.


I guess I made liars out of my parents.  After I was born, I was baptized in a Roman Catholic church.  Growing up, I was dragged to a non-denominational Christian church until I was almost 17.  Was placed in youth group, bible studies, summer church camps, the works.  After we moved to another state, my parents finally stopped their attempts to make me a Born Again Christian (tm).  I suppose they feel like they failed me, and their faith, at some level.  They still go to church.  I haven't gone since we moved, except for a handful of times when I've visited my parents during the holidays and was guilted into going.

The reason I rebuked my parents' attempts?  Critical thinking.

I read that as dumbing down Baptists, and wondered how that could be possible.

iheartscotch: simplicimus: iheartscotch: I read that as dumping down; I figured that this would be about a video titled "Two girls, one pope".

Um, Anglicans don't have a Pope. Kinda a thing with them.

Oh, that's right. Their leader is the King or Queen of England; or is that different now, too?


I think it's the Queen. There's an Archbishop in there somewhere. I don't keep up as much on heretics as I should.

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: Baptism got dumbed down the minute it went from being an initiation into a small cult that met in houses on the edge of town which required study and sacrifice and started being performed on babies as part of a state-endorsed religion. It's all gone downhill since Constantine.


Well, what have the Romans ever done for us?

phlegmmo: Benevolent Misanthrope: Baptism is about accepting a god and all his teaching as revealed through the church, and rejecting the Devil and all his works.

I liked some of his works, but that was before he got all preachy.


But he's a fan of man!

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

And that's what dumbs it down?
