    Has anyone ever successfully annulled their JW baptism? Especially if they were very young when baptised?

    no need to--its just a silly bit of nonsense that has no relevance in the real world.

    although i'm sure i would qualify---as if i could give a damn.

    It’s easy. Just ask the elders to annul your baptism, and they will announce that farmer Jim is “no longer one of Jehovah’s Witnesses”.

    Everyone thinks they have a special way out. Few find one. An annulment has probably happened somewhere along the line, that. ooooo1% chance, and if you go down that path and it doesn't get annulled, you'll be disfellowshipped instead. Fade, get disfellowshipped, or disassociate, those are your real options.

    who cares, why bother? It's a cult, they make up the BS rules as they go along!

    No need to annul anything because a baptism is only as legit as you imagine it to be.

    So I was thinking about how I was baptized as an infant in the Catholic Church and later after that my parents found the jw cult. Then I was baptized as a teenager to officially be part of the cult. So since I was baptized 1st in the Catholic Church, wouldn't that make me still a Catholic? I seriously doubt my parents contacted the Catholic Church to ask them to remove us all from their membership- any thoughts?

    All or nothing, you are still a baptized Catholic, though it is a recognized baptism in many other churches as well. Not so for the JW baptism. That is not considered a baptism the Christian faith, officially. It is a promise to follow a the" spirit directed organization", the cult.

    I believe Michael Jackson was afforded this way out.

    No, but I do know someone who was baptized TWICE!
