Can you be a godparent when your not religious?


I have recently been asked to be the godmother of my very first cousin, however Neither myself nor the parents are religious, but our grandmother is devout and worries about him not being Christened, so he is getting baptized. I worry about hypocritical though since I am very strongly against organised rreligion, how can be a godparent and not actually follow through in the actual role?

    Thanks everyone, that has eased my mind on the issue. Unfortunately we are having a hard time with the priest who is not willing to let me be the godparent. I explained that I would be a spiritual guide rather than a religious one.
