It's all about the Benjamin's baby.

evidence trumps experience | performance over perfection | responsibility – authority = scapegoat | emotions motivate; data doesn't

What exactly is the point of that? Baptism in general, too, but why would a baptism be any more than a symbolic tap on the head with water? Why would you actively do something to an infant that is in its nature to fear?

And why is there ever a need for someone who's only performing rituals to handle a naked infant?

The "original" baptism consisted of full immersion in water (Matthew 3). It is still practised in that way by some churches - that's the kind of baptism I undertook, for example. The dribble-of-water baptism is practised mostly by the Catholic and High Anglican churches.
