    The Anthony's re-baptized on Caylee's 4th birthday

    I noticed several posts on this subject on Caylee's 4th birthday thread so I thought I'd start a thread where this can be discussed without cluttering up her birthday thread.
    I don't really have a problem with their "re-baptism" on Caylee's 4th Birthday. The fact that they are baptized at all is a step in the right direction. I applaud their spiritual leaders and pray that the WORD preached to them will not return void. If ever there was a family that needs God...it's the A's. Baptism btw does not remove or absolve one of sin...accepting Jesus Christ as savior does. So unless they've made a profession of faith they can be dunked til Jesus comes back and they will still be the same headed straight to hell. JMO of course

    I am just hoping they were baptized for the right reason and not as another publicity stunt. I hate that they did it on Caylee's birthday. It could have waited for another day.
    Shhhhh..........we're watching Nancy Grace.

    But....I, too, hope the A's did the re-baptism with only pure hearts, momtective. AND, ledwards, wouldn't THAT be a breath of fresh air...lets not hold our breath.

    ...and I have to say that I'm very honored to be a part of this group here at WS. Caylee was honored here yesteday with so much love and respect. I see in the daily updates that there were those on the internet who did not take kindly to the As who, in their minds, "upstaged" Caylee's special day. But, there was very little mention of it on the thread here. Yesterday was all about Caylee IMO. It's a shame that the As have behaved the way they have. There is so much love and support here that I know would be gladly shared "if only"...

    There are many people who are re-baptized into the church. Many only feel Sunday is the day they need to be "practicing Christians" and the rest of the week you would never know they attend church at all.

    The proof of the pudding in receiving baptism again will be how they conduct themselves in their daily lives. I am sure the pastor of the church counseled them prior to them giving themselves over to God.

    CA/GA do not have to answer to any of us; but they will have to answer to Caylee in time. If they have done this for the right reasons, the churches not mine, then maybe some good will come from it. Actions speak louder than words CA.

    I agree, it was a bad decision to do this on Caylee's birthday considering the A clan's past actions.

    I want so badly for this to be the beginning of something better for the As. I'm hoping they chose her birthday as the date for the baptism as a way of acknowledging their failure to do the right thing with regard to Caylee and her memory, and as a formal proclamation to correct those misdeeds going forward with honesty and light. That is what I want to be the case. It's cautious optimism, their history demands it, though even cautious optimism may be a stretch at this point.

    I don't think there is ever an inappropriate day to get baptised. And there is nothing wrong with the Anthony's wanting to memorialize a life lost by being born anew. I think it's wonderful that a tragedy of such magnitude in this family's life has had a positive effect in that they are turning to God and spirituality and I think that should be celebrated.

    I personally wouldn't choose the day of my deceased grandaughters birth to do something for myself...but that's just me. There are 365 days a year to get re-baptised..JMO.

    I hope this is a genuine act of faith and not a publicity stunt or a legal tactic to bolster credibility because no one can con God.

    In my opinion, a very tremendous coping mechanism for them. Hope they find peace and solace in their grief.

    I truly hope the Anthonys have had a spiritual awakening.

    It is, however, so sad that this child cannot have a moment that belongs just to her without her family turning it into a "look at me" moment.

    I was always taught that God wants the worst amongst us to be the ones that will turn to him (while the faithful are already on his side, God desires a relationship with those who are not yet faithful)-If the A's are being pious, it is mute as far as a relationship with God....If they are turning to God as big big big sinners, they have taken a good step.
    Sometimes in all of this, and as much as I despise KC, I have to wonder if God would be even more pleased if KC would turn to him and give him her sins....In non-spiritual terms, it would be the very best for both KC and Florida and many of our conciences if she were to purge her evil and tell the truth!

    All I can say is that if they had done it for the purest and right reasons...we would not have known about it.
