"What are godparents?"

That's a pretty shitty policy.

Ironic that I've been asked to be godfather to so many kids (of my Christian friends and family members) that I've lost count.

I’m a god parent. In name only obviously. His mother is Catholic, but not Catholic and he’s gay. Basically just promised to watch out for the guy

The people who godfathered the members of this site clearly failed in their duty.


I was asked to be a godmother and we settled on guardian. That is what they really wanted and what I am comfortable with.

I thought it just meant if the parents carcked it you had to look after the kid.
Should get the PC crowd onto it. Can't say actress anymore, call it secondbestparent.

I am a godparent and have no idea what my responsibilities entail. At least she's in college now so I'm unlikely to show my ignorance


Technically, you can't be a God parent if you are not Catholic. During the ceremony, you are asked to help raise the child Catholic.

This is Information that I received many decades ago. So, take it with a grain of salt.


Uhhh...so some infant, who doesn't even have the concept of the number 2...or not to number 2 in it's diaper...can't have a friend or family member assigned to assist raising? I didn't know that...and it seems like a stupid rule. Seems like that's who SHOULD have godparents...since they are being raised without the guidance and brainwashing into ridiculous beliefs.
