They believe this can only be done through the church although some people like Ghandi for example would probably sprout right near the top of Heaven.
    I think we are talking about different religions.

    Could be, but if so I'm surprised you didn't find out that this is a thread about Mormonism.

    Sorry, but I'm going to ask a question that I've been wanting to ask.

    So, Prof Goodstain. When that man told you to share the banana, did you tell him to "fuck the fuck off"?:steam:

    Because it is a conceptual violation and not a human rights violation, I see my own reaction as meaningless. If there are Jews who are offended, then they have right to make a case against this act. It only has meaning if it is perceived as a violation by the group on the receiving end. It doesn't make sense for me to make a case against it or to dismiss it.

    FYI, I've just baptised the entire world, living, dead or unborn into the cult of Belfism, which supercedes any other religious ritual and makes everyone my servants in the afterlife.

    Complaining about it just makes you more of a servant, but my guess is that no one on the planet will actually care. So why care about this?
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,

    Baptisms for the dead are done by proxy. A living person is baptised in the name of the deceased person. There's no corpses folks.

    Just for fun, I think I'll send out excommunication notices to all members of the LDS.

    This just seems silly to me, not offensive. Even setting aside the notion that one can be baptized after death (presumably after one's fate in the afterlife has been decided, if you believe in that sort of thing), how can any baptism not done with the consent of the baptized or their immediate family even be characterized as such? If you don't share the beliefs of the Mormons, it's completely meaningless. I would be much more offended if I were dead and my name were used in voter fraud, Chicago-style.

    It's true in this sense but do these Mormons count these "baptized" Jews as Mormons?

    That's just... no.

    Why holocaust survivors, anyway?

    If they do it in private and don't actually involve the bodies of the dead people they are baptizing then I don't really see what the fuss is about. The more time they spend "baptizing" the dead, the less time they have to cause trouble for the living.
