His own son, though, right? He was protecting the child from spirits he believes can harm him. Shall we prosecute people for putting babies under water during baptisms? That's much more likely to end up drowning them than scratching some runes on a kid's back.

When asked why, the caller said, "Because it's a holy day" and hung up the phone. Wednesday's date was 12-12-12, a once in a century occurence.

Huh. Much like any other date.

So, you're okay with him carving a pentagram, with a box cutter, into his son's back.
 
As for baptizing children, most churches don't immerse the child in water.  Pouring or sprinkling blessed water over the top of the child's head is the usual method.

Any weirder than cutting off their foreskin because God told them to?

Yes, but until then are parents going to have the right to bring their kids up in their religion or not?

How about healthcare? Or language? Or prejudice?

The arbiter of these things being what, exactly?

Babies are not put under water during baptism. No one drowns during baptism either. I would suspect that you are trolling but mental illness and atheism sounds more like your problem.

You want free will but you want God to selectively punish or remove that free will when you don't agree with it. Can't have it both ways.

I don't recall placing those restrictions. I'm loosely spiritual with deep faith and no affiliation. I should be a Buddhist/Wiccan. Help me understand what I meant :)

Carving something in a person's skin goes far beyond a simple scratch, not to mention the pentagram covered almost all of the child's back.
