The Presbyterian Church has determined that their churches are now free to dink around with the baptismal formula, to wit, baptizing their little pagans in the name of “Mother, Child, and Womb,” or perhaps “Rock, Redeemer, and Friend.” My view is that they ought no longer to halt between two opinions — they need to go all the way and start baptizing in the name of “Larry, Moe, and Curly.” HT: Bantyrooster
