Some atheists in Europe are formally renouncing their faith through a process they call “de-baptism.” In effect they write to the parish where they were baptized and asked that their name be blotted out from the book of life, also known as the Baptismal Register.
There is actually an organization that exists solely to encourage and facilitate such renunciations called, the Apostasy Association.
Of course, this is nothing new and follows the trend for US atheists to be “offically de-baptized” in a ritual using a hair dryer .
Sad and remarkable that atheists should go to all of this effort.Posted by Stuart James
