The Jewish Answer to Posthumous Baptisms

So. The Mormon practice of posthumously baptizing dead Jews.

I think how I stated it pretty clearly how I feel about it in this post from 2008.

I’m not even really sure how such a thing can even be done, since even I know that baptism has something to do with dunking a person in water (a ritual likely inspired by the Jewish mikveh, anyway) so unless the Mormons are going around digging up bones and ashes to concoct some gross Jewish soup in their Tabernacle, the whole idiotic thing is a symbolic and pathetic pretense of “saving” souls when they’re really just trying kiss God’s tuchus. As if spirituality is actually some game where the more people you convert over to your narrow way of thinking, the bigger the prize.
