It’s a matter of disrespect and arrogance.

Let’s say I created a ceremony to make all their ancestors gay. Now, the fact that they don’t believe in my ceremony doesn’t change the fact that my doing so is disrespectful to their grandparents and the choices he/she made while alive. It’s arrogant of me to assume that anyone but myself wants it and that I have any sort of power to do so.

It doesn’t matter if I can smile and say...”But your grandpa can still choose not to accept homosexuality up in heaven. This just gives him the opportunity to be gay since he didn’t know about it in this life.”

It wouldn’t be a homo vs. hetero argument at all...it’s a simple case of respect for someone’s completed life.

Do LDS believe that the souls of the unbaptised-LDS dead are in hell? Do they believe that picking a name out of a book and “performing” a baptism on the name of a dead person moves their soul from hell to heaven? Not being sarcastic, I just really have no idea what this is supposed to accomplish.

Excellent point!

Let’s go farther.

Let’s actually create a special Unsealing Ceremony for the Dead.

By Proxy Unsealing, (any dead) Mormon wife can be Unsealed
from her god husband, if she so chooses, for any reason
she chooses. Any living Mormon or non-Mormon can be a proxy
for any dead Mormon wife. It would be a Liberation to
nullify any chance that her previous husband wouldn’t call
her by her special name and resurrect her.

:-)

Teach those arrogant god-husbands! Let’s strip away their
Celestial Polygamy (which the oLDS teaches still).

Let’s also create a Celestial Demotion Ceremony. By participating
in this ceremony, you can be a proxy for any Mormon who has died.
By standing in for them, you will renounce every Temple
Ceremony, Mission Trip, Tithe, Marriage Sealing, etc.

The previous works they thought would earn them a spot above
everyone else - and their “godship of their own planet -
will now be nullified.

Surely, they couldn’t get upset about this, could they?
And perhaps they could then begin to realize how offensive
it is when they purport to convert people who have died
believing in a faith already.

Hey, let’s also make them wear pink underwear in the
afterlife ...
