    No, the kid is lumpy from being clobbered with the champagne bottle.

    “I christen thee…………………….”
    Waste of good champagne (If it is the good stuff.)
    Just more bad press for the priesthood.

    I guess there is more than one way to do it and this way would be stunning.

    If baptisms went down like this I’d probably attend more of them.

    …actually, it’s pretty close – old wives tales in my mother’s culture state that if the baby starts to cry when it is being baptised, that is the devil fleeing the child…probably doesn’t align well with catholic doctrine, but really, what do those ivory tower types at the vatican know anyway…

    Nor most Christian doctrine. Most all state that all are born pure. It is later the “devil” makes him/her/it self known. Usually around puberty I noticed. One of those things to control human behavior. I am not saying there should be no control. That would really be bad. Just an observation. I remember an old story. The oldest profession is the lady of the night. The second oldest is the religious police to keep the first profession in line.

    Anything about if the child accidentally does number one on the priest during the Baptism? Seen that enough on “America’s Funniest Home Videos” to think that it warrants its own OWT.

    …actually, according to what i was taught at catholic schools…, all children are born with original sin – they aren’t pure…Mary was not – she could not have original sin and borne the Son of God, so SHE was born pure, without original sin…anyway, this is far afield – it’s a comic…a funny one, too…
