Hi, guys —
My best friend recently had a son and she asked me to be the Godparent. On her son's birth certificate, they put his religion as Christian, however, his mom is a Catholic and wants her son to be baptized at the Church she was baptized at.
I have never really classified myself under any religion. Growing up, my family didn't go to church but they would talk to me about God. Over the years, I grew to have my own connection and relationship with God. I still don't know much about the religions in order to choose which one I would be comfortable with but my question is:
- If I want to be the Godparent to my best friend's son, do I have to be a Catholic?
