Jewish Mom: Church Baptized Kids

A Jewish mother just wanted her two children to come back with an appreciation for another religion. Instead, one came back “accidentally” baptized, she says.

Audrey Ausgotharp said she signed a permission slip allowing her children, Wayne, 7, and Cindy, 5, to board a Cornerstone Baptist Church bus so they could visit the church in Colorado Springs.

Later, two women from the church who accompanied her children home said Wayne had been baptized “by mistake,” she said.

“I said, ‘How do you baptize a child by mistake?’ I was so furious and hurt I couldn’t say anything,” Ausgotharp said.

Cornerstone assistant pastor Mark Rossi said church officials are investigating the woman’s allegations.
