"Why do you need her help? Were you not baptised in the year you were born? In that case you just need to tell them the year and the parish in which you were baptised. They should be able to do the rest."

"This is something I never realized. When I was 3 or 4 days old my very Catholic Italian grandmother bundled me off to the local church and had me dunked and baptised Catholic. As that was the only official relationship I every had with the Church I…"

"Hmmmm. Wasn't really aware of this. I guess they will use whatever accounting means necessary to boost their numbers. In light of Dr. FG says below, it looks like its not easy to get off their list once you're on it."

"I just posted a link to www.countmeout.ie which has details of how you can officially defect. Yes, it's true that the catholic church says that you can't be un-baptised, but that's just in their eyes. Who cares what they think, their…"

"Rusty, I'm assuming you're just messing around with that. But why stop with the holy ghost? Why not deny the whole kit & kaboodle! Seriously though, if you want to officially be removed such a note to them will not suffice!"

Hello Beebub, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise, like you and other atheists, that gods are phoney and religions are cunning frauds used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.
