A more sensible thing to do would be to try and see if you can declare your baptism null and void even according to Church Law.

Lots of priests are modernists – ie secret liberals who believe Jesus did not found the Church or start Catholic baptism. The CDF in the Vatican declared that Mormon baptism is invalid for Mormons hold that baptism was not established by Jesus Christ.

Lots of priests are atheists or believers in something different from the Catholic God. Modernists use religious language in a symbolic way. The CDF said that Mormon baptism despite being done in the name of the Father,Son and Holy Spirit was done with the intention of denying the three in one God and so was invalid. It follows that a modernist priest whose theology of God may be even more unChristian than the Mormons cannot validly baptise. Its only a ceremony with no effect. It does not make the child a member of the Church like valid baptism allegedly does.

If you have reason to believe the priest who baptised you was a modernist at the time, then the baptism was invalid for he broke the Church rule “a valid baptism must always be performed with the intention to do what the Church does.”

Finally if baptism really puts God’s power and grace in you, you will know that. If you can’t perceive it then clearly you have proof but only to yourself that your baptism did nothing supernatural and was not real and thus you never were a real Catholic.

They really don’t belong in the Church and are acting accordingly.
