At 14 I had to went through Confirmation.
With 14 you are considered mature in regards of choosing your religion by the German law - yeah is if!
I just mentioned slightly that I really would prefer it not to be confirmated.... boy! No chance for me to get out of it.

well i was baptised, then at age 8 i had to hve the sacrament of the first communion, this is one of the major sacraments of catholicism, its not a practice i agree with, and frankly at that point in my life i barely knew of other religions since i'd been in catholic education since i was 3. and raised in a familly where we were at church every sunday(until i started avoiding it when i was older). then when i was 11 i was confirmed, no one ever asked me if i wanted to do these things, by coming from a known catholic family, and attending a catholic school, it was assumed that this was what i was going to do.

Personally i dont believe that religions should be formalised until you're old enough to make all the other important descisions, for instance, you can't vote until your 18, you can't drink until you;re 18 etc. why can children be confirmed into a religion as a minor? i'm not trying to say that children shouldn't believe in anything, only that i dont feel its appropriate to be confirmed in a religion until you are considered an adult and are considered legally responsible for all your actions.
