Answer: Anyone can "baptize" anyone with or without their permission or the permission of any relative (some churches baptize everyone not in their faith to their faith) - the question becomes so what:
Without the permission of a legal guardian it is a form of bullying
Without the permission of the baptized party is is similar to entering someone else into contract without their agreement
It has no standing in law - no baptism does
It does not influence the life of the baptized party
