Should it be law, that a priest can only baptist somebody over 18 years old?


People should have the right of religion freedom and parents should not force their own religion upon their children, but in the west, it is common practice to have ur child baptist as a christian at birth. I don't think that is a good idea. We should wait till the child grow up to make their own decision whether they want to be a baptist Christian. So, I believe it should be illigal for priest to baptist a child, if he is under the age of 18, even with parent's consent. And if the parent force the child to be baptist, after growing up, the child has the right to sue the priest, who perform it

    Actually Christian bible also teach, killing people who refuse to worship Christ, it is just modern westerners don't practice such savage teaching. There is at least two bible passage that teach stoning or stranggling non believer to death
