Atheists Doing Rational Behavior – De-Baptizing (The Columbus Dispatch)

WHAT NEXT; FULL IMMERSION DE-BAPTIZING IN A POOL OF HAIRDRYERS?

“Do you agree that the magical potency of today’s ceremony is exactly equal to the magical efficacy of ceremonial baptism with dihydrogen oxide, and do you agree that the power of all magical ceremonies is nonexistent?” Frank Zindler, president of American Atheists, said to launch the de-baptism.

After a resounding “amen” from the audience, the first person in line yelled, “Dry me brother! I’m free!” The crowd laughed as each person squeezed his or her eyes shut and walked underneath the blow dryer.

“It sounds perhaps frivolous, but it’s a very serious thing,” Zindler said before the ceremony.
