Should I attend a child's second Baptism?

I am a Godparent for a child who has been baptized by his parents before the church did. There was no imminent danger for the child. They are now holding the second baptism in the church a few weeks from now. I am morally culpable by attending? How can I explain what an egregious decision the parents are making. Thanks.
