Disclaimer: Sorry if this post may be offensive to you, just move on and don't read it, i'm currently a little pissed off at the organization

I registered to my local kreisburo as I'll be working here for the next six month. The gentle lady (GL) asked: "Are you religious?"
ME (honestrly): "No, agnostic"
GL (tricky): "Are you baptized?"
ME (as honest as dumb): "Yes"

What can I do?
Can you go back to that office as a starting point, and say you want to change your religious status, as a mistake had been made?

The woman concerned should have just accepted your "agnostic" and not asked any more questions.

I bet that woman did not even know what agnostic means. In the course of 63 years, I have never heard that word being used in German, but quite often in Englisch.

I call myself an apathic dyslexic agnostic -- I don't know if there is a dog, and I don't care.

It's those agnostics who tell me that I shouldn't care that get up my nose. Blasted evangelical agnostics. Woof.

Searching is so difficult isn't it.

OK. You'll need a black cockerel, a butcher's knife and a tub of ghee.

When you have acquired these materials, come back to this thread and tell me, and I'll give you the next set of instructions.
I cook a lot of Indian food and the next doors have chickens...I AM ready...so what is next?
