Baby dies in pointless ceremony

I don’t want to sound overly dramatic and suddenly declare Baptisms are unsafe, but when a baby drowns from this pointless ceremony, you have to wonder what kind of safety precautions people take when doing this, especially when it’s not the first time people drown from this nonsense.

The baby’s dad Dumitru Gaidau, 36, said: “We all saw it, the priest didn’t put his hand over the baby’s mouth to stop water going in as he should have done and as they do at every other baptism.

“We couldn’t believe it that he just put his hand over his belly and over the head and submerged him three times in the water.”
The baby’s godmother Aliona Vacarciuc, 32, said: “The baby was crying as he went into the water.

The worst part about this whole story is everyone around the priest knew things weren’t going as planned, but Father Valentin assured them he knew what he was doing…even while the baby was turning blue and gasping for air. Nice job, everybody! Sure, they arrested this worthless idiot, but I’m sure it’s small comfort for the grieving family.

Hey, here’s an idea; if some guy wearing a fancy dress tells you he’s specially ordained by an invisible man in the sky to dunk your newborn in water a bunch of times, why don’t you think twice about handing him over?

    I agree that this pointless ceremony resulted in the needless death of the child as a result of the negligence of the man performing the duty, but to put any part of this on the parents is going a bit far, and comes off as being heartless. I’m sure the parents had witnessed other baptisms (likely many) without witnessing any problems threatening the childrens’ lives.

    At least the kid isn’t going to hell, eh? If you aren’t dunked in magic water before you die, you get tortured forever, it’s facts and logic people…. some kids will die, oh well.

    Small comfort for the grieving family and even smaller comfort for the dead child.

    Shouldn’t God have flushed out his lungs? Maybe he was taking a smoke break.

    @ Razzle, “At least the kid isn’t going to hell, eh?” lol that was my first thought too, so while the kid isn’t going to hell you and I definitely are for thinking that.

    No, I think it is perfectly appropriate to place blame on the stupid parents as well. For one the baby didn’t just drive itself to the church. The parents are, if nothing else, enabling agents to the child’s short shot at life. The poor baby will never be again. There is no coming back, and there is certainly no heave. That child’s life was wasted on a belief grounded on falsities. How fucked up is that?

    And to continue where Michael left off—-
    They were watching and the baby turning blue and in distress was not as important as some worthless act by an incompetent twit.
    They should have pushed the twit aside and started CPR. But no the ceremony was MORE important. They may not be murderers but they contributed to its death.

    Jesus may very well be a real person, but that doesnt mean he is the creator of the universe, can hear our every thought and wish, and despite all evidence to the contrary, the creator of man.
    IM not the least bit scared to think about the afterlife, there is no evidence to support it so no reason to worry about it. Ill be as concerned about it after i die as i was before i was born.
    Then your last sentence i dont even need to refute. oh and just because you type in CAPS LIKE THIS DOESNT MAKE YOU ANY LESS WRONG!!!!!

    ^ Haha, man, I love it when nutjob christians come to the site to tell me I’m going to burn in hell forever. Can’t you just feel the love? does it please you to think of people with different beliefs than you being tortured forever? It’s pretty sick if you do, dude.

    During my baptism I was crying and making such a fuss that my good ‘ol religious mother was ‘so utterly embarrassed’. Thanks, mom.

    Apparently I was sick at the time but that’s no excuse for a baby.

    I like to tell her it was actually baby-satan taking over my little baby mind. Good thing I was bathed in some holy water in the nick of time, cause the lil’ bastard just flew right out of me… and onto the priest’s fancy silk robes. Heh heh heh.
