Did you know it is possible to get debaptised? For $4.50 secularists in the United Kingdom will sell you a Certificate of Debaptism. It is an “outward sign of the inner rationality that inspires your being.”

Through the ages, believers refused to renounce their faith in the face of persecution, and threat. I don’t think these people are renouncing their faith as much as their affiliation with a church. Their infant baptism wouldn’t have saved them anyway, Salvation isn’t contained in a baptism laver or a minister’s blessing—it is a personal transaction between a person and God.
Matthew 10:32-34 GNB "Those who declare publicly that they belong to me, I will do the same for them before my Father in heaven. But those who reject me publicly, I will reject before my Father in heaven. "Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the world. No, I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
