The Decline Of Christianity

George, the baby who is supposed to, one day, open schools and kiss babies as the King of England, will be baptised today.

He is already three months old. But hey, there must have been more urgent things to do these ninety days.

I have no idea how long did it take before former heirs to the throne were baptised. It can be Protestants were as bad as that a long time ago, and I wouldn't be too surprised.

Still, I cannot avoid seeing in a baptism that takes place three months after birth, without anyone seeing anything strange in that, another sign of the decline of Christianity.

    Well, that’s the difference between folklore and Faith.

  2. We must be joyful on this occasion and not grumble. Little George is baptized and puts on Christ. Perhaps it will be him who leads his people back to Rome!

    • Little George must be baptised. He is slated to become the Defender of the Faith. Baptism is part of his job description.
      And yes, I am also happy. Better late, as they say. But heck, 3 months is plenty late…

  3. It is a traditional Protestant thing – or as my mother would say “they could make it up the aisle on their tricycle to their christening”

  4. this delay in baptism has infected conciliar Catholics as well…why the long delay in removing all traces of Original Sin’s blemish? Why risk it if a baby died soon after birth without the salve of being washed in Jordan’s waters? A neighbor recently waited >2 mos before baptism, I have seen it as long as 6 or 12 mos with some conciliars.

  5. My thoughts exactly, when I saw the “christening news” on the news. 3 months old? Good Lord, I know they’re Anglicans, but geez. Whatever happened to 3 weeks, at the most? By the way, do Anglicans have their version of some of the Sacraments? I’m ignorant of their beliefs. Is the “christening” of Prince George considered a protestant sacrament by them?

  6. Nearly 25 years ago our local priest was very condescending to us because we wanted our baby baptised. He couldn’t see any need for hurry: babies were sinless and in no danger. He didn’t believe in transubstantiation either, by the way.

  7. At my Church three months, at least, seems to be the standard practice. Heck, I’ve seen people wait until their children were 5, 6, 7 years old! For some reason, from my experience, that seems to be a common practice among the Latin American spanish speaking people.

  8. You’re not implying that unbaptized babies go anywhere other than Heaven are you? You bad man! You piss me off almost as much as that Eugenio IV guy. Now, that guy really burns my britches! Think of all the poor mothers who have to think about their babies not having the beatific vision! Even worse, those holy victims, the mothers of the aborted, are going to feel all guilty and bad and stuff. Horrors!

    Besides, the babies can’t even understand what’s going on. If we are going to put off their Catholic Bar Mitzvah until they are teenagers so that they can make an informed, voluntary choice to be Catholics, shouldn’t we do the same for baptism? Plus, the whole body immersion is a lot safer for teenagers.

  9. Princeps militiae caelestis

    In Brazil, the Church requires that parents and the godfathers go through a baptims course that takes weeks and months, because of the Church’s ahenda and the parents/godfathers agenda…………….and ……..to be short………no child makes the baptims before months at best.
    Terrible new world.

  10. It is not unusual here in the US, at least on the west coast. The Catholics here are so often very much closer in practice to ‘our separated brethren’, as we like to call them. By the way, my old high church Episcopalian friend went through a ‘confirmation’, many years ago. They seemed to think of it as a ‘coming of age’ sort of thing—my sister and I thought it meant her church allowed her to go to dances with boys. 😉 We were naive little Catholic girls…
