    I have been baptized at birth in the catholic church, then in the late 1980s excommunicated for having had an abortion. Now I am a freelancer, I suppose, and can go to any church I want. I used to attend mass at a nearby Presbyterian church and I liked the sermons for addressing down-to-earth, everyday issues.

    Did you know that in some circumstances you can baptize? I once baptized a little girl because her family would not

    I have a friend who participates in animal baptisms and blessings annually....but is the above a sheep baptism or flea/scabies bath?

    Maybe they're just killing two birds with one stone.
    Would be a economical and practical way to perform other animal baptisms too.
    I've even know a few humans who would benefit. ;)

    Now there's an idea. Give a sheep a flee dip and call it a baptism!
