Am I the only one angered every time I'm reminded about the Mormon practice of baptising random deceased people?
I get that if Mormonism is incorrect, then it makes no difference at all and if it is correct then it's just offering people a choice but it still just makes me grind my teeth.
I read someone arguing that it shows how much the Mormon faith values each and every human soul that has ever been on the planet, but I see it as very disrespectful. I should really have some sort of argument or something here, I know, but I don't. I could, but I'm just not going to go into the lack of honesty involved, retroactively trying to make everyone Mormon, or the utter (again) lack of respect for the beliefs and lives of the people that they're doing this to. I just get this urge to go up to random Mormon's and go, 'Hands off my ancestors!'
It's irrational, I know. Then again, Mormonism is one of the (few) religions that I just cannot deal with. I find them bizarre and I don't like them, in general. I've never, to my knowledge, even *met* a Mormon, but I'm prejudiced against them. I'm not proud of it, but that's just the way it is. For some reason I don't trust them and this is one of those things that just makes me go, 'Yeah. Creepy and weird. Stop it.' and reinforces my feelings of dislike and distrust.
