idk why parent would be foolish enough to think their child need to be baptized before they can understand what it really means and before they understand right from wrong. this is typically a catholic practice and also people of the baptist practices. i dont know why catholics are considered christian when their practices all relate to paganism. and those other denomination claiming to be christian but have one foot in and the other out, picking and choosing what theyre going to practice and theyre not. they give other christians a bad name,and make us all look like savages, then people who dont know any better get led into a practice instead of the word of God and getting to know Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and accepting him, children are innocent and children are pure, what do they need to be baptized for?, when God says children dont get sent to hell. I dont know what parents christian or not would, allow their children to go through a ritual without knowing what it really means, especially with a priest.
because the want their child to grow up and believe in something. because the world is not the same.
I think their probably hedging their bets. "God doesn't exist, probably."
It's the same reason that non-religious people might wear religiously significant jewelry.
