Correction (kind of)Posted: February 3, 2012
In response to the comment posted by Jettboy, I would like to state that what many call posthumous conversion is otherwise called Proxy Baptism or Baptism of the Dead. While Baptism traditionally means that one has taken on a new faith or fully committed to the one they already practice, Mormons see this act as opening the door for a posthumous conversion to be made by the choice of the deceased in the after life. Semantics, but I am certainly one to understand the power of words to hurt and to harm.
To be clear, I find the practice to be utterly distasteful. I will remove my commentary from the previous post and maintain the links to the articles that I provided.
