So the Catholic Church now considers the baptism of children born out of wedlock to be some sort of reward, for not aborting the pregnancy???
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for people taking responsibility for the “pro-choices” they make, when it comes to “choosing” to have unprotected sex, etc etc etc...That’s a start I suppose...
Oh well...I guess we’ll see how well this all works out...
...baptism of children born out of wedlock...
These, are the Innocents.
Baptism’s not a “reward” for anything. It entirely has to do with the child, not the parents.
It is called not blaming the child for the sins of the parent.
After all the child may grow up to be better than the parents if encouraged by the church to do so.
You don't seem to be getting it.
Um, no. The Catholic Church doesn't believe that the innocent child should be denied baptism because of the circumstances of his or her birth.
