Sometimes what is meant to be angry diplomacy becomes a mere statement of the obvious.
For instance, as far as I know, Baptism is always and by definition a "deliberate" kind of thing. I have yet to hear of one happening by accident, at any rate.
In many cases, as I'm certain many Catholic converts can personally attest, Baptism is occasionally also "provocative" to many outside observers, especially when they have any emotional stake in the status of the person being baptized.
That, as Forrest Gump would say, is all I have to say about that.
