Those wacky Mormons…

on May 4, 2008

I just read the most bizarre phrase I have ever come across, I think.

“…posthumous baptism by proxy…”

Let that sink in for a minute.

***”Posthumous baptisms by proxy have been a common practice for the Latter-day Saints — commonly known as Mormons — for more than a century, allowing the church’s faithful to have their ancestors baptized into their faith so they may be united in the afterlife, said Mike Otterson, a spokesman in the church’s Salt Lake City headquarters.”
