Paul Lin replied to SheaJ's discussion Baptism Conundrum: Help Please!
"You just have to avoid religious activities and find a more rational school that does not require a child to be baptized. If you cannot, you can always move to another country. Being in a country where 80-90% of schools are religious isn't fun.…"

Baptism Conundrum: Help Please!

Hi all, I would appreciate any practical help on this one please! I’m a bit stuck. My wife is due with our first child. I am super excited at the prospect and look forward to sharing my love of the natural world and all its wonders with him/her! I am a strong, and getting stronger all the time, rationalist that is as far up the Atheist scale as you can be. My wife, without knowing the deepest workings of anyone’s inner mind is, I believe, not a true believer but is in that awkward place of not…See More

Northern Ireland: Humanist poster stirs up religious storm

This has added significance, it being in Northern Ireland. It would have been impossible to post something like this 10/15 years ago, considering the hatred and violence that existed between many Catholic and Protestant communities.Remember the quote: "... but are you a catholic atheist or a protestant atheist". How poignant.ArticleSee More

CountMeOut.ie The (officially) lapsed Catholics

Ireland: Thanks to a website, it has never been easier to defect from the Catholic church, and people are beginning to take up the option.For Orlaith Finnegan [...] defecting from the Catholic church took only a week. She used the website Countmeout.ie to apply and sent her letter on August 25th to the Cork diocese, providing the parish and year of her baptism, and received confirmation of her defection on August 31st. A note was made on her baptismal record stating that she had officially left…See More
