Debaptised, still a member?

I did the debaptism thing about 18 months ago and on the amended certificate that they sent me it had the details of my baptism and my marriage details but in the space for confirmation it says there is no record. Now maybe I am being paranoid but I find it strange that they would find the details o...

Re: HSE's Sexual Health Awareness website - the rhythm method

As a mother of young adult daughters, who are in non living together relationships I would be horrified if they thought this was a safe method of contraception. When my girls were in the last year of primary school the school organised a nurse to come in and talk to the kids and my first daughter at...

Re: De-Baptism

I sent one email to communications@dublindiocese.ie. I worded it in such a way as to be polite but very clear that my mind was made up as to wanting out. I also gave my full name, D.O.B, parents names, church where I was baptised and a rough time of when it happened. That was all I did. When I recei...

Re: De-Baptism

I had no problem defecting. I sent an email to the Dublin diocese, about a week later I received a letter telling me they were organising for the baptism register to be amended. There was a long paragraph telling me of the consequences of leaving the catholic church which boiled down to the fact tha...

Thanks Martha for the support but it looks like we are on our own. I didn`t mean to cause a debate on vaccination but I wanted to point out that while proper science is a good thing a lot of current medical science is corrupted by financial interests and to my mind should be viewed with a good pinch...

Am I the only one here to wonder if this poll has strayed well away from atheism and has instead become just a thread for people to over glorify science without question? I`m an atheist and free-thinker. I have great difficulty with people who blindly follow science, particularly medical science whe...

I received a letter this morning from the diocesan office informing me that: `an annotation will be entered in the register of baptism to the effect that your defection from the catholic church has been given recognition`. They say that when the baptism register has been amended that they will send ...

I`m not totally depending on that. My daughters are now late teens, one is an athiest and the other has an interest in wicca. They both know my feelings and wishes but what worries me is that if I was to have an accident tomorrow older members of the family would try to overrule my wishes. My mother...

I have just emailed a letter to the Dublin diocese requesting them to update their records to show I am no longer a member. I should have done it long ago :!: It has been playing on my mind for the last year or so mainly as regards my funeral. I attended a cousin`s funeral last year and it truely si...

They are not being issued until the 8th Nov. Did they not already do Bono? I`ve just noticed the first day of issue postmark is an angel blowing some kind of horn :roll:
