What a total crock. Mormons baptising people after death is nothing new, but this is one I take as a personal insult. Not that I think these post-death baptisms have any actual relgious effect whatsoever, because it’s all bullshit, but it’s the principle that gets my goat. Leave the memory of these people the fuck alone!
If you don’t know it, the Mormon Church has a curious habit tradition? doctrine? what would it be called? of baptizing dead people as Mormons posthumously. This is the subject of a blog called Famous Dead Mormons tag line = “Saved After Death, whether willing or not.”. Apparently baptizing famous people became a bit of a “fad” in the 1990s Think of it, perhaps, as a Mormon “prank.”
Believe if or not, infamously outspoken hater of religion George Carlin is now, that’s right, a Mormon in the afterlife. I’m sure this will be news to him. Can you imagine his reaction to this???
