God parent Q

Has anyone ever turned down being a godparent when they were qualified to be one?

I was always taught that refusing is a big no-no.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
