Mormon Posthumous Baptism
I find this whole Mormon Baptism brouhaha a little bizarre - not the practice itself, mind you (though as a Catholic I do find Mormonism a little weird) - but that it is "controversial" and something that should be Condemned and Repudiated. That anyone should be "outraged" by an unseen symbolic ritual performed in some anonymous building in some nowhere praire town simply because the name of one of your dead ancestors was invoked during the ceremony is rather insane. And that this is big news is particularly absurd. But these are the times we live in - it is the Age of Outrage.
