Does everybody know about the Mormon ritual where they submit names of the deceased to be baptized posthumously into the faith? Does everybody know how they have a bad habit of doing this to Holocaust victims, which Jewish people find, sort of, you know, offensive? Every time they’re caught doing it, they issue an apology and an empty promise never to do it again, but it looks like they’ve been caught baptizing Anne Frank. Again. Sick:
Anne Frank, the Jewish girl whose diary and death in a Nazi concentration camp made her a symbol of the Holocaust, was allegedly baptized posthumously Saturday by a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to whistleblower Helen Radkey, a former member of the church.
The ritual was conducted in a Mormon temple in the Dominican Republic, according to Radkey, a Salt Lake City researcher who investigates such incidents, which violate a 2010 pact between the Mormon Church and Jewish leaders.
Radkey said she discovered that Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank, who died at Bergen Belsen death camp in 1945 at age 15, was baptized by proxy on Saturday. Mormons have submitted versions of her name at least a dozen times for proxy rites and carried out the ritual at least nine times from 1989 to 1999, according to Radkey. But Radkey says this is the first time in more than a decade that Frank’s name has been discovered in a database that can be used both for genealogy and also to submit a deceased person’s name to be considered for proxy baptism — a separate process, according to a spokesman for the church. The database is only open to Mormons.
It’s sad when religious ideology trumps humanity, but we’re used to that around these parts, aren’t we?
This is why it’s more than appropriate that, thanks to the internet, there is now a website where users can submit the names of deceased Mormons and convert them posthumously into homosexuals.
Sadly, many Mormons throughout history have died without having known the joys of homosexuality. With your help, these poor souls can be saved.
