That kid might not come back up out of the water.

Make sure your child gets their full Ritalin dosage before being baptized.

Not sure I'd have been so calm as this man.

One of the strongest pieces of evidence for Infant baptism I have ever seen.

Being Jewish I have no theological stance on this issue, but from a hygene point of view I wouldn't want to follow an infant into a font, if you take my meaning.

My understanding of most infant baptism is not immersion but a sprinkling on the head with waster or pouring a small amount over the top of the babies head. Otherwise, I'd agree with you.

The mike was close to the babtristy and when wet is a deathly shock hazard.

Churches are probably exempt from OSHA regulation, but the preacher is near a fatal on the job hazard.

You've got a point. A wireless mic might save the newly baptized from an immediate need for that baptism.

No kidding. That happened at University Baptist Church in Waco, Texas a year or two ago. The microphone wasn't splashed by a cannonball, of course, but the young pastor was somehow elecrocuted and he died. It was unreal and horrible.

I bet Cannonball Boy got a big, stinking spanking after church. My parents nearly killed me for wreaking major havoc on a Christmas pageant (playing an angel, oddly enough) when I was too young to even remember it, but they absolutely would have gone through with it if I'd monkeyed up my baptism like this guy did. Not to mention the questions he undoubtedly raised about his grasp of becoming a Christian and being baptized in the first place. I bet he gets a heap more "decision counseling" after his backside recovers.

Wow, I really do sound like Religioncop. ;o)

I'm wondering if this behavior was really unexpected from this kid. The way everyone was laughinig, I almost get the impression that they were thiinking *If anybody would ever think of doing that, it WOULD be him.*

LOL! You're probably right. And it seemed like something was going on off-camera, just outside of the baptistry. Like maybe someone was there egging the kid on. Hmmm, maybe he had a big brother....
