They Should Have Asked Him First

John Hunt was baptized at the age of five months, but later became an atheist. He recently requested that parish records be "amended to note he did not consent to the baptism in 1953."

He was told that his baptism cannot be deleted because it is a matter of historical record.

He then secured a "de-baptism" certificate produced by the National Secular Society (NSS), rejecting "superstitions" or the idea of original sin.
This week the church backed down and said the entry would be "corrected". [Link]
