Here is the situation: My wife is a very faithful True Believer (and a wonderful person, I will add, who really wants to do what's right) I have been DA'd about a year, and we have 2 children. Our oldest is 13, and really buys into the Witness line ( as, of course, I professed to until last summer) and I am fairly sure she is considering baptism. Here is my question: as one half of her parents, is there any legal doctrine that would allow me to prevent her baptism until she is 18? In other words, would a threat to sue - directed at the local Elder body and by extension the borg - have any teeth, or would it be mere bluster?
Some clarifications: I'm not sure I would do this, I am aking if it's possible. Also, should she want to when she's 18 I would not stand in her way - but I do feel that the WS callously takes advantage of adolescents by letting them step into their trap at an impressionable age. I would prevent that if I could.
