Ha, another meaning for 'Vulcanize' could be to devastate someone with logic...

I don't think the clue for baptize is particularly accurate.

Generally speaking, in Protestant Christianity to be baptized as an adult is a public statement of identification with the teachings of Jesus Christ. To be baptized as an infant is a statement claiming the child is a member of the new covenant of the family of God similar to Jews performing circumcision as a statement claiming the child is part of the covenant between Abraham and God. Perhaps in Catholicism baptism is claimed to perform the functions described.

Soulac is absolutely right. This is a major point of contention between the Roman Catholic church and historic Protestantism.

And again, clues are just that: clues. They do not have to cover every. single. possible. definition. of the answer. Therefore, even if the clue only fits the Catholic definition of baptize, that still makes it a valid clue within the context of JetPunk quizzes. It is accurate. It does not need to be comprehensive.

The whole point of these quizzes is mental exercise and occasionally (frequently?) learn something. It was just a response to Quizmaster's question, "why?" not a push to change the clue. Quizmaster does a fine job.

caught out by the American vs British spelling. Didn't know that Euthanize was the alternative form of Euthanase

I knew someone would make a comment along these lines. -ize is British English as much as -ise is. Look up Oxford English, it's the style employed by the Oxford University Press (who publish the OED) and it is still used by plenty of British publishers and a few newspapers in the UK.

Fraternize means to mingle with, associate with. Since when has it become a synonym for befriending the enemy? - I thought that the term for that would be treason.
