And in one of the more interesting news items I've seen this year...

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that a Florida atheists' association is offering "reverse baptisms" for those members who were baptized as children and would like to renounce that.
Not quite sure what to make of that, but it's an interesting notion. Can you reverse your own baptism? Does simply deciding you don't believe reverse it? Is baptism just a ritual anyway, easy to disregard anyway, or is it something more?
I have no answers, but I'll just throw the questions out into the blogosphere.
