Insert Obligatory Mormon Joke Here

I knew, in an offhand way, that mormons had a tendency to do postmortem baptisms, at least to their own families. I wasn't aware, though, that they tended to do this with Jews. A lot, apparently.

I've known a lot of people who were mormons over the years, and they're just not this weird. Are they just hiding it well?

eMail this entry!

Doesn't this just make you wonder what is going on with the world? These people are doing this and it sounds very unholy to me. Crazy

Please don't put my name on any of their lists. I really don't want to become a Mormon after I die! LOL People really are crazy in so many different ways.

We don't baptize people postmortem, we baptize vicariously postmortem, and only if the family gives permission. A living representative of someone who is dead is baptized in that person's name. We believe that anyone who is baptized in this manner has just as much right as a living person to refuse the baptismal covenants. And don't worry... if you express that you don't want to be baptized in a living will, that choice will also be honored. ;)

Next thing you know, we'll have to specify in our wills that we don't want our corpses used as "love dolls" by necrophiliacs.
