Baptism

My Anglican brother-in-law just posted pictures of his son's baptism on Facebook, and this was my first thought. I didn't want to start anything by writing a snarky comment, so I made this meme out of one of his pics instead. Enjoy!

How is this different or better than any other pagan ritual?

Because a man in a funny hat said so!

If a baby died before being baptized, it went to Limbo. Not 'official; doctrine any more as it once was, but told to parents just the same. The baby didn't get rid of it's original sin before dying.

There isn't any reference to limbo in the bible. It was a way to keep people in the fold, again by fear.

It seems they don't have any sense of smell at all, anyone with half a brain should smell the BS right away.
