Quite a number of people do this and then complain that most of our schools are under the guidance of the CC. It doesn't make sense to me...

I didn’t do it for schools; my children will never set foot in a catholic school. It will never be recorded in a census. I did it to pacify my mother and my girlfriend’s parents, mostly at my girlfriend’s insistence. Thankfully, with the fourth kid I won and she was not christened. To be honest, if it wasn’t for other religious people being so insistent about the need to infect other people with that religion then we probably would not have this problem. Along with baptism for “school” baptism for “a quiet life” must be well up there in terms of reasons why.

My oldest kid also did her first communion, but that was simply for the having a day with her friends. She has matured in a lovely little atheist.
