According to HuffPost and many other publications:
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.Apparently this is not the first time Mormons do it with Anne Frank, too.
I really don't know what to say. First of all, Mormons can no more stop their shtick then, for example, rabbits could refrain from eating carrots when the latter are made available. Or whatever else rabbits cannot refrain from doing when available.
On the other hand, being a practicing atheist, I cannot say that I am especially irked by that Mormons' obsession. My stiff most probably will be planted according to the tenets of Judaism, and if Mormons succeed to get hold of my soul posthumously - the loss is all theirs. My soul will definitely mar the existence of all other baptized souls in the Mormons' after-world. I know what I am talking about, believe you me.
And yet on the next hand (the third one already), being an atheist, I am a cautious one, after the immortal Mikhail Samuelevich Panikovsky who, while being an atheist, still hedged his bets on theological issues - just in case. So, in the same vein, I really wouldn't mind being converted (posthumously only!) to all existing religions at once. Who knows, maybe one of them will click...
Anyway, as you can see from the above, I am all for diversity. As such, I would dearly like to offer the same diversity to the Mormon folks, and I am certain there is a way. Here is an Internet tool that easily adds a new dimension to their rather one-dimensional life. A quote that shows how it is done:
Sadly, many Mormons throughout history have died without having known the joys of homosexuality. With your help, these poor souls can be saved.I know, dear Mormon brothers and sisters, that it is only a first step. But, as you know, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step*.
Simply enter the name of your favorite dead Mormon in the form below and click Convert! Presto, they're gay for eternity. There is no undo.
(*) Which is a part of another belief system we'll have to master together...
Update: It looks like the second step on the conversion diversity road was made already. Cool. And thanks to Citizen Wald for the tip.
