Whoops, I meant to send the below to OneWingedShark, not freedumb2003.
Baptismal regeneration isnt as easy to dismiss as many want to assume:
Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good consciencethrough the resurrection of Jesus Christ... (1 Peter 3:21, in the New American Standard Bible (widely considered the most literal of English translations))
I’m not really here to argue about baptism though... My main point is like freedumb2003—this is a parental custody issue, NOT a Judge-determining-religion/big government issue.
It was UK, so all my US knowledge is inapplicable. If it were, I could dig up relevant state constitutions and make an argument.
