Start Strong–Douglasadams525

Many religions claim that it’s never too late to be saved, but one sect takes this concept to a whole new level.  While most denominations teach that an individual is ultimately damned or saved immediately after the moment of death, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believes that even after we die, we can have more chances to be saved than there are stars in the sky.  Mormons believe that when a person dies, their soul goes to Spirit Prison, but that it can still join Heavenly Father in the Celestial Kingdom if the person is baptized.  Therefore, believing that every individual is entitled to be saved from eternal damnation, the Mormons uniquely perform post-mortem baptisms for people of all religions–even Holocaust victims.  Despite the generous implications of good will behind this practice, many members of the Jewish community claim that the posthumous baptisms of Holocaust victims is both disrespectful and harmful.  However, this claim is both incorrect and hypocritical–it brashly asserts that the practice of posthumous baptism has harmed even a fly, while simultaneously reflecting an ignorant superiority complex held by the Jews, whose pretentiousness has led them to rudely believe that their religion is better than that of the Mormons, and also to forget their own harmful spiritual practices.
