U.S. Atheists Reportedly Using Hair Dryers to ‘De-Baptize’

American atheists lined up to be “de-baptized” in a ritual using a hair dryer, according to a report Friday on U.S. late-night news program “Nightline.”

Leading atheist Edwin Kagin blasted his fellow non-believers with the hair dryer to symbolically dry up the holy water sprinkled on their heads in days past. The styling tool was emblazoned with a label reading “Reason and Truth.”

Kagin believes parents are wrong to baptize their children before they are able to make their own choices, even slamming some religious eduction as “child abuse.” He said the blast of hot air was a way for adults to undo what their parents had done.

“I was baptized Catholic. I don’t remember any of it at all,” said 24-year-old Cambridge Boxterman. “According to my mother, I screamed like a banshee … so you can see that even as a young child I didn’t want to be baptized. It’s not fair. I was born atheist, and they were forcing me to become Catholic.”

Kagin doned a monk’s robe and said a few mock-Latin phrases before inviting those wishing to be de-baptized to “come forward now and receive the spirit of hot air that taketh away the stigma and taketh away the remnants of the stain of baptismal water.”

Ironically, Kagin’s own son became a fundamentalist Christian minister after having “a personal revelation in Jesus Christ.”

“One wonders where they went wrong,” he chuckled to the TV show.

  1. American atheists should not waste their time de-baptizing themselves. If they are atheists, their entry into heaven will be denied, whether they de-baptize themselves or not.

  2. Ah, the poor dears. 😦

    Hey, wait a minute, what’s up with these atheists believing in such supersitious nonsense anywho? I mean, don’t they often charge Christians with believing in magical sacraments and magical ceremonies, etc.? Why are they performing some de-baptismal rite as if that could “magically” cure them of the Christian “hex” put upon them? Furthermore, it shows that they must partly believe there to be some authenticity, some change, some “something” in the Christian rite of Baptism if they have to be released from it. If the Christian rites are just magic anyway without any power or authority, then why bother going through this de-baptismal rite?

    Ah…ya gotta just shrug your shoulders, really.
