Mormon proxy baptism of Daniel Pearl draws family's ire

A muckraking ex-Mormon researcher struck again this week, revealing that some Mormons conducted a proxy baptism for slain Jewish journalist Daniel Pearl last year.

The disclosure comes after recent revelations that Jewish victims of the Holocaust, including Anne Frank and a parent of Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, had been baptized by proxy by Mormons.

Helen Radkey, who has been combing through Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints records for years, told CNN the Pearl incident was one of "the most egregious," because of the circumstances of Pearl's death.

Pearl, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, was kidnapped in Pakistan and beheaded by terrorists in 2002. Prior to his execution he was forced to read a statement on camera saying he was Jewish, an episode that was captured on video.

Radkey, found LDS records that revealed Pearl was posthumously baptized at the Twin Falls, Idaho Temple in June.

The baptism struck a nerve with Pearl's mother, Ruth Pearl. She said in a statement that while she knew Mormons had good intentions, and meant the baptism as a way to offer salvation, "rest assured that Danny's soul was redeemed through the life that he lived and the values that he upheld."

"He lived as a proud Jew, died as a proud Jew and is currently facing his creator as a Jew, blessed, accepted and redeemed," Ruth Pearl's statement said...

One cannot be baptized for another anyway. This is just symbolic on the part of the Mormons—THEY may think it works, but I don’t think it’s visible.

They hate it. Stuff like this isn't supposed to come out until Rommie has the nomination.

Just one of the many reasons Bishop Romney is not going to win.

It's not directly attributable to Bishop Romney yet but it'll look like Milt personally signed off on it by the time the Democrats get done massaging it.

I do not beleive this story SLC lds promised just last week, also last month, also last year, and also a few years ago these baptisms would stop. So I am sure the story is false.

The bums doing it are the bums reporting it.

Haven’t you figured that out? The same idiots bent on reporting the malfeasance are the ones sneaking the paperwork past the scrutiny by claiming it’s a dearly departed relative who wants it done.

The stinking liars feigning outrage are orchestrating it.

Our lovable MSM figures a story is a story is a story.

Yeah, because we all know that Team Obama, his SuperPAC and the DNC have too much class and integrity to use his religion against him.

The Mormon dead dunking is like the Moslems claiming your dead grandmother is now a member of Islam, burka and all..and married to Mohammad...

For the Mormon members theres brownie points for turning in lists of names...real or not...

Vlad, Hitler, Holocaust Jews, Founding Fathers, cartoon characters, Jesus Christ, etc all dead dunked..

The Mormon jesus needed saving..

George Washington had no family he died childless so the Mormon bigwig who decided to dead dunk him (to “do the temple work”) was not his descendant..no family there

The Mormons haunt cemetaries, obituries, family trees etc for lists of names...

If your ancestor is in the Mormon IGI International Geneological Index its because he or she was dead dunked..

We used to be able to go further into the Mormon websites and see the dates and places our Christian ancestors were necro baptised, endowed, and sealed and married to strangers..and “saved” into Mormonism..

The mormons stopped that access when it was discovered that someone had made Obama into a Mormon by dead dunking his dead mother and sealing her to him as her child..

She was also finally “temple married” to Obama Sr the polygamist father of Jr..

Now they are threatening even the members of Mormonism not to turn in lists of people not related to them ...

or they will not be able to access the website..

Ya think thats going to stop them ???

Ive got a bridge...

_____________________________________

Yeah I agree

I dont think the progressive mormons are going to stop this evil practice...

Theres too much big money in geneology for them..

Serious researchers know not to rely on their records..

but theres always the dupes willing to pay double for info they can get from the source or archives instead..

Ive paid half the fees to get the same microfilm from Canada that the Mormons would charge me from Utah..

I just go to the same archives that the Mormons went to ...

Pearl’s mother, Ruth Pearl. She said in a statement that while she knew Mormons had good intentions,

She either doesnt know Mormons or she is an extremely gracious woman...

either way the Mormons arent fit to clean her boots..

They are done massaging it. What they don’t want is for it to come out now. They want Rommie as the GOP candidate. Then they launch the smears.

Oh yeah, Team Obama (Obama,DNC,MSM)Media who refused to cover Jeremiah Wright, WILL cover all manner of Mormon weirdness, 24/7 once Bishop Rome-ny gets the nod. Rome-ny’s approval will be in the 30’s by October.

It's SO sad. I won't vote Democrat but I cannot vote for Bishop Romney. I cannot.
