Mormon W.T.F?

Ok, I'm all for tolerating people's beliefs in anything from zombie Jesus, to a flying spaghetti monster, to the inherent integrity and honesty of the Republican part, to pretty much any other fairy tale they want, but this just irks me to no end:

Holocaust survivors to Mormons: Stop baptisms of dead Jews



Regardless of what religion you choose (or you choose to have none) what the hell are the Mormons doing baptizing someone posthumously? Honestly, as someone who reluctantly has to acknowledge that someday I will most likely be dead, I don't want someone "baptizing" me as a Mormon because my stupid kids or grandkids or great grandkids etc... want to feel good about seeing me in the afterlife. If/when I die, leave me as whatever I chose to be at that time and don't even think about baptizing me as a Mormon or I will come back and haunt your stupid ass for all time out of sheer annoyance that anyone I spawned could be such a gullible nimrod.

Sadly this kind of stupidity just makes it that much more obvious how they could do something as asinine as supporting Prop 8. I really do try to live and let live and not get annoyed at groups of people in general[1] but lately the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints is starting to push hard to be summarily dismissed as being composed of a bunch obnoxious idiots... I mean really, at this rate they could almost merge with the scientologists.

[1] Ok, I'll admit it... I do tend to have a prejudice against clowns, but that's it... and it's really just because of their lifestyle... it's just unnatural how they cram so many people in those cars... and those feet... if God wanted us to have feet that large he would have given them to us. The same goes for that bulbous red nose and their deathly pallor. It's just wrong. :-p


Mormons are nuts. End of story.
Hey! You're slandering nuts (of all varieties) w/ that statement!

1. They've been baptizing dead Jews for decades. It's appalling.

2. They have been meddling in non-church affairs for decades - Prop 8 is just the latest round. If you look it up, you will see that they are also the main reason the ERA went down in flames. Presumably they told their churchgoers then that if women had equal rights, the church would be forced to shut down by law (which is what they've been telling folks about prop 8).
1. Oy vey. I can't believe anyone can take them seriously knowing that. I kind of thought they were Yet-Another-Christian-Sect, but I'm starting to have some serious doubts. There's religiously kooky and then there's this kind of crap where they try to drag everyone in even after they're dead (which seems to put them above even the mob for getting their hooks into people)

2. Un-believable. I'm just aghast at this. They're not just annoying, they're starting to really come off as self-involved self-important evil assholes.

They also wear magical underwear.

What has been seen cannot be unseen :-(
I know, right?
this practice is seriously all kinds of screwed up. i'm with you - i don't want anyone trying to "baptize" me when i'm long gone!
