Oh, and as to the OP.... what a load of BS. I was christened. So What? The next step was confirmation/Communion. Guess what? I chose not to. I don't go to church. End of Story.

If people really feel they need that, they're in a far worse place regarding their beliefs than a ceremony like that could help them with.

Political statements aren't for fun. They're political. You wanna have fun, go buy a hula hoop.

I'm very concerned for your well-being, monster. I put in for a virtual on-line confirmation for you, and also arranged for you to receive virtual communion (so virtual you didn't even have to participate).


You'll thank me in the afterlife.

Yes, it was a joke.

And you feel -- very hard -- in a god. Whoopee she-yit.

I feel GREAT personal benefit from not givin a shit about god/heaven/afterlife.
Instead I care about life itself, not some supernatural psycho-babble. So go take you god-fearing miserable self somewhere else, mmkay? Oh I know, since you think the "after-life" will be so great, take yourself there.
Stop polluting my world with your "higher calling." I'm over it.

I'm not going anywhere, and you can't bully me either. So stop playing the fool.
