Brits snap up 'de-baptism' forms


LONDON (RNS) – A secular organization in Britain that backs an atheist ad campaign on London’s buses is now producing “certificates of de-baptism” for people wishing to renounce their Christian faith – and claims it is getting thousands of takers.

The National Secular Society says more than 100,000 ex-worshippers have downloaded the de-baptism certificates from its website, and that thousands of others have ordered up parchment versions at about $4 a copy.
