You'll need to find some other Catholic church (i.e. priest) to "confirm" that you go there regularly, and write it up for your brother's church to see. It's BS.

Yup and the hard part is to find that other priest :-( I looked at some local churches online and all of them you have to register and some of them wont give you a certificate unless you have been a member for more than 3 months. At this point I don't know what to tell my bro, I would feel bad saying I cant be a godparent but on the other end of it I also don't want to be forced to do something I frankly no longer believe in and don't want to devote time to.

many non-catholic churches operate on donations only, no fund raising, god will provide type basis... No $$$ required for a service for a death or any of that bullshit.

A catholic church where i grew up refused a funeral service for a former fire chief who died of mesothelioma because he didn't attend and donate regularly in the past 5 years... no shit, the guy was on his death bed.

They’re ALL the same... try not paying your “donation” at the synagogue

I’ve always believed there is no such thing as an atheist in a fox hole but churches of any denomination are businesses first places of worship second

Be honest with them, you can be a godparent without a piece of paper if that's what they want.

They're not... I can't speak for anything but what I know and have experienced in the past... But no baptist or protestant type church that I ever went to did anything but pass around a tithe plate. Sure they ask, but if you don't or cant then its NBD.... Those same places won't do bake sales, fund raiser or bingo nights either.
