The Mormons may have converted the dead members of your family!!!

Ask most lay people what they know about the Mormon Church, or the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints to give them their official title, and the chances are the first subject they will mention is polygamy, despite the practice of taking more than one wife being officially renounced around 120 years ago. 

They might also mention the odd famous Mormon, like The Osmond family, or The Killers, whose image seems to belie a religion that forbids alcohol and caffeine. Then there’s Mitt Romney, failed challenger to Senator John McCain for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008, and whose Mormon faith was believed to have hampered his cause


The Mormons are morally obligated to track down as many of their ancestors as possible and convert them to their faith vicariously in a temple ceremony, a ritual they know as proxy baptism but is also known as Baptising the Dead. Full story...

Don't miss:

  1. Have you ever wondered what the Mormon Church teaches?
  2. The King of America, Sun Myung Moon...
  3. The Rise and Fall of Rajneeshpuram...
  4. 30 years ago, in Guyana, in a place called Jonestown...
  5. New Delhi's Akshardham Temple: Nirvana? Or Disneyland?
