Supreme Court exempts Church from registering apostates in baptismal records

.- The Supreme Court has sided with the Archdiocese of Valencia regarding the protection of church archives and exempted all of the Spanish bishops from having to acknowledge those who have renounced their baptism.

The Archdiocese of Valencia published a statement noting that the court struck down a previous ruling that said baptismal records could be modified or canceled at the request of those who wanted to renounce their faith.

The Supreme Court said in its ruling that church baptismal records are not subject to civil laws regarding the protection of information.  The archdiocese had appealed a lower court ruling which sided with an individual who wanted to remove his record from his parish’s baptismal registry.
