Ultimately, Harry will make his own decision on religion, but most little kids tend to be religious, and are often judgmental of those who don't 'follow the line.' Does he really want to be known as the kid who wasn't christened? It would be a social stigma that would mark him as 'different' not only among his friends, but among your family members as well. The harder choice may be if you're deciding to send him to Sunday School to prepare for Communion. I'm not Christian, and I'm about as much as close to an atheist as an agnostic can be, but both of my kids were circumcised and suffered through years of Hebrew School and were Bar Mitzvahed simply because I didn't want to deprive them of learning about their history and the important rituals of their religion, so at some point when they decide if the want to continue in the faith they at least can come from it from experience.
