Mormons keep a database of random people and baptize at will!
I have a friend who loves to get me riled up on various topics, and since religion probably gets me the most riled up, that's one of her favorites. She sends me an email today with this:
on an entirely non-cute-denim-skirt related topic, mike rex told me last night that the mormons keep a HUGE electronic database of information on random people that they then baptize by proxy without their knowledge (i will take my chances that telling you this will not make your head explode or incite a one-atheist riot, but i know the possibility is there...).
I thought this was completely silly and told her so. And then I googled it and found out she was kind of right!
Has anyone else ever heard of this? I thought it was kind of funny that they apparenlty can't get enough living followers so they have to convert them when they are dead!
