I like that a lot!

I was raised Roman Catholic and it never sat well with me that babies are supposedly born with original sin that needs to be cleansed with Baptism...I thought that was supposed to be forgiven by Jesus' sacrifice (crucifiction and ressurection)? KWIM?

In any case, no, DD was not Baptized or Christened. I no longer consider myself a Christian, and DH did not have strong feelings on it either. Then again, I don't believe in a hell either so I guess that would color my feelings on this anyway.
