Its a choice parents go through and one me and my wife have gone through over the last few years.
When our daughters were born it was mentioned a few times mainly by other people rather than ourselves. We both knew what we wanted and it didn’t really need to be spoken about.
Neither of us is religious in any form and we felt it would be hypocritical of us to get either of them Christened. Even when we got married church really didn’t enter our heads and we decided to get married at a local Manor.
Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against religion or being Christened but we think for our children we would like them to have the choice when they are older.
Of around 600,000 babies born in Britain each year, 168,000 are baptised into the Church of England and another 64,000 into the Roman Catholic Church. – Source babyworld.co.uk
I can sort of understand people wanting to do this but for me if you do it because you are forced into it by family members then that is wrong, if however you do it because you believe in it that’s your choice.
I’m sure people will have their views on this and I’d like them to leave a comment for a health debate.
