Based on this response in the Ask an Apologist section:
Why would the Catholic Church deny someone this indelible mark of sanctifying grace?
I understand that it is desirable for the parents to bring the children up in the faith, but it almost seems it would be better for the child not to be baptized than a child to be baptized but brought up non-Christian.
Baptism is a saving action. Baptism is more than a symbolic act. Something seems awry here. Perhaps someone with more knowledge on the subject can help me understand this more clearly and/or point me to some information that will help make this a little clearer for me. Thanks.
