My grandson's baptism

From Carm ~

I have a grandson who will be baptized in a couple weeks.

His parents have NO intention of raising this child in the Catholic Church. It's just to placate the mother's maternal grandparents and have a nice party.

My husband, my sons-including the baby's father, and I are all Atheists.

What is the best way to participate in a religious tradition when you are NOT a believer any longer?

Same with funerals- I have about 10 aunts and uncles in their 80s and 90s...
