It was to verify the legitimacy of your claim of "Santera". In an effort preserve certain traditions, I like to ask basic questions to help preserve the traditions.
As a Santera, you should know what I meant when I asked about godparents since your post was specific of what you were looking for. With your answer, I can ask around to find out if you have been initiated and are using the title appropriately.
Again, this isn't personal. This is to maintain the integrity of the tradition which I'm sure you'd understand.
