I’m not Catholic but I find the whole thing a hoot.
Baptizing dead people by proxy is utterly ridiculous but no more so than some of the other weird crap the mormons have come up with.
I think the Catholic church should give them the names of so many people, that they have to take some of their missionaries off the street to help! LOL
“Baptizing dead people by proxy is utterly ridiculous...”
Check out 1Cor15:29 sometime. It is a ancient Christian practice. Catholics kind of changed it to praying and lighting candles for the dead, but the idea is similar.
