Help! Mum wants to secretly baptize my baby

Help! Mum wants to secretly baptize my baby


"I am an atheist but was born into a religious family. I don't want to push any religious beliefs onto my little boy, but my mum keeps threatening to baptize him when she babysits him on Sundays. "Is she allowed to do this behind my back and without my permission?" We were LIVE today to tackle this question, and many more, in our free monthly legal advice forum, LawyerUp! [FREE TO READ]

THE cat is out the bag and wandering the streets — is it immoral? Illegal? Or just an inconvenience?

Why not? WW2 was a horror-fest for everyone, that's literally what the WW means, and both sides although China was invaded by Japan, the Japanese were hurt too, we all bled because of some bad decisions we didn't really know how to make.

Very special

Thank you for your service...

Amazing photos on a special day your mates with you in spirit thank you for your service.

Thank you

My Brother In Law led the Queensland Police contingent in the Brisbane ANZAC Parade for a couple of years running some years ago. Respect for these people.

It was always a challenge and an honour to write the operation orders for this and the many other major City Anzac Day events in my time at Metro Area Office - 1967 to '82.

It should be called the no more Nazis march. That was the whole point you know

Get rid of the Nazis. Not let them in Australian government hello idiots

Cops are tops

Congratulations a job well down

This Contingent ,Smart ,Proud ,Tough

Let the traditions continue!

Great experience for me as guest of Manly Warringah Pipe Band! I was really touched and as Swiss a never forgetable day!!! 🇦🇺🇨🇭
