That’s more like water boarding than a baptism. Greek unorthodox.

That is not Baptism, it's child abuse.

We had 3 Baptisms at our church and they were NOTHING like that.

I miss the good old days when you could get baptized right through the TV by Ernest Angley.

Child abuse in Greece starts at an early age.

That's why you didn't baptize your kids? Because you were concerned the priest would be too rough?

In the Catholic church it's just a little dab of holy water.
Baptists and other cults do the dunk thing.

The topic of religious outlook after returning home from a war zone is almost never covered in sermons. I'm going to suggest this to our minister. Guessing it will be a difficult subject for someone who hasn't been there though. Might involve dealing with subjects that are not popular on Sunday morning also.
