The famous Swiss Reformer Huldrych Zwingli stated  “Nothing grieves me more than that at the present I have to baptise children, for I know it ought not to be done" he also states "… If however, I were to terminate the practice then I fear I would lose my prebend.” He affirmed:  I leave baptism untouched, I call it neither right or wrong; if we were to baptise as Christ instituted it then we would not baptise any person until he has reached the years of discretion; for I find it nowhere written that infant baptism is to be practiced.”  He concludes: “However, one must practice infant baptism so as not to offend our fellow men." (Verduin, Reformers and Their Stepchildren, 198/9)
