100,000+ Brits Download Certificates of “De-Baptism” from Christianity

More than 100,000 Brits download certificates of “de-baptism” from Christianity

LONDON (AFP) – More than 100,000 Britons have recently downloaded "certificates of de-baptism" from the Internet to renounce their Christian faith.

The initiative launched by a group called the National Secular Society (NSS) follows atheist campaigns here and elsewhere, including a London bus poster which triggered protests by proclaiming "There's probably no God."

"We now produce a certificate on parchment and we have sold 1,500 units at three pounds (4.35 dollars, 3.20 euros) a pop," said NSS president Terry Sanderson, 58.

Sigh, the world is going to Hell in a hand basket. This is some sad, sad commentary on the state of our world. Perhaps the worst part? These idiots are paying $4.35 for the certificate... Hey, Godless moron, make your own certificate in Word for free. Er wait, no forget that, I'll make you one for half the price, $2, limited time offer.

When I saw this headline I thought the same thing....why a certificate? Making a certificate just adds credibility to baptism. If you really believe that baptism is nothing more than submerging a person in water, what's all the fuss about. Besides making yourself look ridiculous by openly mocking other people's faiths.
