Debaptism 2.0: Fleeing the Flock Via the Net

I never heard of Debaptism until I read this article. I find it mildly amusing that one is required to formally declare their separation from something they never had a choice of joining in the first place. Then again, I don't live in Italy.

Why do they feel they need paperwork to make official something they dont want to recognise or be part of anyway?

...it is simpler than that where I comefrom... I just go into the church and say "I want out of the state church" and there I go...

when i was a kid, it was required that everyone pay 10% alms for the poor via the church, which was the social system of the time. my parents did nor agree about how the moneys were alloted so they both 'divorced' the church.
