Ever heard of “de-baptism”?

According to Religion News Service, Britain’s National Secular Society offers certificates of de-baptism for people who have been baptized as Christians and would like to remove themselves from the faith.

The society also supports the production of “There’s Probably No God” banners on British busses. Produced by the British Humanist Association, the busses made headlines just weeks before NSS began printing their certificates.

Learn more about NSS and the certificate initiative.

What do you think? If someone doesn’t believe in God, wouldn’t that imply they don’t believe the act of baptism was valid? And if that’s the case, would de-baptism be necessary? Or is this a way for the anti-religious to publicly separate themselves from religion?

One Response to “British Org. Offers De-Baptisms”

  • dharma:

    Atheists all over the world are Hindus because it is only Hindu Dharma (Hinduism) — which accepts Atheists also. For example — Rishi (sage) Chaarvaak was an atheist but DID find a place and reverence in Hindu Dharma. All other religions — (like Islam or Christianity)– one has to believe that there is a God and their respective god send person is their savior. Unless one accepts this — one can not be a Muslim or Christian; but Hindus dont advocate a singular path and support Atheists also. This is the beauty of Hindu Dharma (Hinduism). Let all Hindus all over the world reveal this to the Universe and bring them to Hindu fold !!!
