To quote Elder Christofferson on the Exclusion Policy.And so with the other ordinances on through baptism and so on, there's time for that if, when a child reaches majority, he or she feels like that's what they want and they can make an informed and conscious decision about that. Nothing is lost to them in the end if that's the direction they want to go.
Fully agree. I figure, if a child unable to make a legal, contractual oblication, or if they are unable to make "an informed and conscious decision", reasonably independant from parental/societal pressure, they should not be baptized. But we should still hold kids accountable for their mistakes, according to their understanding. I'm not a huge fan of the doctrine, "Satan cannot tempt litle children... before reaching the years of accountability."
