                                                             The other day I read about a new ceremony that’s
                                                             been developed and comes complete with a
                                                             handsome certificate. The name of the ceremony is
                                                             De-Baptism and it’s designed for atheists who want
                                                             to void their baptism into the Christian faith. I found
                                                             a video of this ceremony on YouTube and shook my
                                                             head in disbelief as a running hair dryer was held
                                                             over the wet heads of both youth and adults who
                                                             came through. A little hot air and presto, you’re de-
                                                             baptized!

                                                             Needless to say, it’s hard to get happy after
                                                             something like that. But it does make me wonder ….

                                                             it also makes me all the more grateful for the things I
