You can undo anything these days it seems.  Atheists are now un-baptizing themselves with a hair dryer. 

Noted atheist  Edwin Kagan performed a ceremony in which people came forward to where Kagan would use a hair dryer to symbolically dry the baptismal water from their heads.  Isn't it ironic that atheists, who reject the idea of the symbolism of a baptizing, use a very similiar ceremony to reverse what has been done to them?

The money quote

"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."
Um, skippy, yeah, not so much.  You were probably an infant when this  happened.  Life isn't fair either.   And you were born an atheist?  That statement implies that you were predetermined to become one.  Predetermination, a most metaphysical subject.
