LINK A Christian school baptized 100 kids without telling their parents

Northwood Temple Academy, a Christian school in Fayetteville, North Carolina, baptized 100 students last week without telling parents what was happening.

While this would be beyond illegal in a public school, the fact that Northwood is a private religious institution hardly makes this any better. That’s because baptisms, for these families, are sacred. They’re big events. Parents are supposed to be present when their kids decide to take the plunge.

This court case can go on for eternity, and the loser goes to hell.


I wonder how many pissed in the baptismal pool?

I have to admit that DID occur to me too...

Yer wishin’ fer a lil’ too much there. Sadly it’ll always exist……it isn’t just a delusion….or a belief for that matter, but also a coping mechanism for many and will always exist in some form even if it’s a minority that believe in it.

@CuddyCruiser You’re probably right but dreams don’t become reality without advocating.


Get the kids indoctrinated and you own them for life.


Typical, they blame the victims, the kids wanted to. ..
