Atheists have been making news for having de-baptism ceremonies, But that leaves other faiths out of the fun.
YouTuber graaar is Jewish and she has decided to throw herself a nice little personal de-Bat-Mitzvah celebration. It involves an explanation of why she’s doing it and a recitation of a lovely Monty Python song (Video starts at the 1:05 mark)
Why bother doing this now? As she says, “Baptized babies have no ability to refuse. I had the chance and I did not take it, so I am taking it now.”
And she gets to keep her presents! (Very generous of her, though, to offer to give them back.)
Can this de-Bat-Mitzvah/de-Bar-Mitzvah thing catch on? Because it totally should.
