Man doesn’t go to church, should he participate in his daughter’s baptism? – Daily Dilemma [POLL]

The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.

Here is today’s Daily Dilemma:

I’ll try to keep this brief. I grew up Catholic but we were not really “practicing” Catholics, my parents would bring us to church on the Holidays and that’s about it. When I grew up I stopped going altogether. I have no problem with church or religion in general I just don’t really consider myself a Catholic anymore and simply am not a church goer. I believe in God I just don’t believe in organized religion. So I am married now with a daughter and to be honest we never really go to church unless it’s for a wedding. TO be clear, if they wanted to go , I have no problem at all with it, I just wont go myself.

Well now, my wife and her family want to baptize my daughter. Everyone in her family is baptized and confirmed. I don’t have an issue with this at all if it’s important to my wife then it’s important. However, I have an issue with my involvement in the “ceremony”. Am I being a hypocrite if I participate? Should somebody who is openly not religious “pretend” for the sake of the family? And if I don’t participate is that a slap in the face to my Wife and her beliefs?
