How does the Catholic church keep track its followers, and how do I dissociate myself from it?
I was baptized as a baby, and am assuming that the Catholic Church uses baptism records to declare their billion followers. I have been atheist for most of my life, and did not choose to be raised in the Catholic faith. Is there a way to dissociate myself from being counted as a current follower if it is done through baptism records?
