How hard is it to get really baptized?  Why would you fake it?

EvilEgg: How hard is it to get really baptized?  Why would you fake it?


Anglicans seem to be one of those churches that likes to dip em when they are young, so i guess this guy might need to borrow Obama's time machine.

while this link mentions adult Baptism is doesn't really give much information on what is required, I would think that since it tells you to talk to your vicar, that means there is a lot of leeway, maybe this guy's church is full of jerkasses.

I was denied my adult baptism.  We were given a script to recite in a tribunal of three congregation (male) elders.  I refused to recite the script and instead decided it was more appropriate to testify to my own reasons for accepting Jesus.  I was told my reasons were wrong, I should have recited their script, and they denied me.

Suffice it to say that my argument that my reasons for wanting to be baptised were between me and Jesus and not between me and three crusty old farts didn't go over well.  I left the church and never looked back.

I turned out agnostic anyway so it worked out for the best.

That's funny, because I obtained my genuine fake ID (at the DMV) as a college freshman, making me 3 years older, through a baptism certificate.

People at the Oakland DMV are dumb...

Christianity where all sins are forgiven as long as you pray the right way with the right words.

I believe it's more sprinkled than dipped, but, of course, I watch a lot of cooking shows.

He should convert to Baptist. They'll take just about anyone and attempt to drown them in the nearest river on a Sunday morning

So the Members of the School Board need to see his credentials?
Academic papers and certificates.
Nothing of the sort.
Make him put up a bond!

Wait, wait.  What am I hearing?

FTFA: However, a staff member who has been privy to the disciplinary hearings but did not want to speak on record told the Daily Monitor: "The sex tape saga was nasty for us. Of course, this has to be played safe. The truth is that the young man has been appearing before the disciplinary committee and we shall decide soon."

Uh, WHAT sex tape saga?

CSB time: I was raised baptist, but never got baptized.  Then I hung around Quakers, who couldn't care less about baptism or most other ceremonies.  Then I wound up with an Anglican girl in Uganda.  When it came time to plan the wedding, one diocese wouldn't even handle it, because I had been divorced before, and I guess their view was "you only get one chance at this." The other diocese in the same town was okay with it, but oh yes, I had to get baptized.  So I went to the church a week or two before the wedding, with my fiancée and a couple friends as witnesses, and got baptized, and thus have an Anglican baptism certificate from Uganda.  Thankfully, the Lutheran church where we now live is okay with  allthat mess.

/I am forming an exploratory committee to look into the possibility of running for student-body president.
