I’m not sure Jesus had this in mind when he said “Suffer little children to come unto me” (KJV)

New parents in Tbilisi, Georgia queued up to have their children “blessed” at the Trinity Cathedral in celebration of the Epiphany on January 19. The mass baptism was an invention of Patriarch of all Georgia Ilia II, seen to be one of the most influential men in the country. He came up with the idea to stimulate the country’s low birth rate, promising to personally baptise every third child in each family. The patriarch blessed 780 children during the day.
