Still hurting Tess — 2 Comments

  1. I love Thomas Hardy. Great fan of The Return of the Native!

    As for refusing a service for unbaptised infants – absurd. Surely it doesn’t actually happen even if the rules dictate such nonsense.

  2. Baino,

    I would love to put my hand on my heart and say I am firmly convinced that no-one would be treated in such a way today, but I’m not convinced. I knew a cleric who would even refuse to enter a child’s Christian name in the burial register if it had died unbaptised.
