To baptize or not : About recently become parents view on baptism in the Church of Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats syftar till att undersöka hur nyblivna föräldrar i Sverigeargumenterar för att antingen döpa eller inte döpa sitt eller sina barn. Studienbaseras på semistrukturerade intervjuer. Dessa intervjuer fokuserar påföräldrarnas huvudargument. Intervjuerna har sedan kodats och kategoriseratsför att finna likheter och mönster. Föräldrarna som valde att döpa sina barnvar mer flexibla i sin syn på dopet som religiös handling och fokuserar iställetpå religion. Föräldrarna som inte ville döpa sina barn fokuserade på barnetsrätt att själv välja och att religion inte bör tvingas på ett barn. Slutsatsen iuppsatsen är att individualismen har stor inverkan på föräldrarnasargumentationer.
