Yes. I was baptized as a baby. It's part of the religion I was raised in.

No I do not. My Children will make that decision on their own when they're old enough to understand.

God doesn't deserve my babies:)

To give them to God.




Quoting Simple-Beauty:

I do not. Babies can't sin, and don't carry their father's sin, so what's the point?

Not trying to bash, but what if your child hates that you made them baptize to a religion they didnt want to?

I will forever resent my parents because of it honestly

That isn't what the definition of "baptizing" says.

Giving a child to God, or promising to raise them in the church, is dedicating, not baptizing.
