Help me out here. Baptising?

The practice of Baptism is a common practice within mainstream sects of Christianity in which a guy gets into a pool of (relatively) clean water and dunks him or herself while renouncing that he or she has entered the Christian faith itself. Basically it's a holy ritual in which you leave your old self behind and as Jesus Christ would say you're "reborn".

Although, I don't see how you can do that to dead people, especially of different religious affiliations or sects.

That all depends on which form of Christianity you follow. In most christian sects you are baptized when you are a baby. The minister splashes "holy" water on your head. This signifies that you are clean, that your sins have been washed away.

Bassetman, the easiest way to explain this is that it is a traditional custom. It's somewhat comeparable to circumsion for the Jewish faith. Having a circumsion signifies that you have opened a covenant with God, (much like baptism), and that you are spirtually "clean".

Baptising dead Jews? F off. How would you like people to try and change your faith after you died. Go back to your own practices and leave everyone else alone.

As a Mormon, I feel I must step in here. We don't actully baptize the corpses. We do it by proxy. Our belief is that the spirit goes to a spirit world and that the truth is being taught there. If a person accepts the still need the rituals such as baptism done so people subsitute for them because they don't have a body but ulimately it's still the person's choice and we ment no offense to anyone.

'I'm going to die; if this wasteland doesn't kill me the Avatars will. I'm the last Technomancer; as I go so goes my culture.' The thought was serene, not fearful at all. If he was going to die, he'd die fighting; he'd make sure that the Technomancers were never forgotten. Morshan Sakru: The Last Technomancer would be a name all Avatar would shutter at the thought of for etenity. Morshan now knew what happened to a man who had nothing left to live for but vengence: he became a monster.

Exept holocaust victims were killed for their faith.

And it is changed on record.

People researching their ancestors will see Mormon, not Jew.

It's a completely immoral practice.

I don't judge you what right do you have to judge the practices of my faith; every faith in history has made mistakes and even athests will make some major mistake now or later.

Just because it's faith doesn't make the practice wrong.

Look at Scientology.

And Satanism.

And Nazism.

All faiths (yes, even Nazism), but have many things wrong with them.

We already stopped anyway so it doesn't matter. I wasn't saying it wasn't wrong I was just saying you have noo right to judge. "Ye who is sinless cast the first stone."

If there's anything remotely positive in Nazism other than for German or european supremacist nationalism, please let me know.

So the mormons are spreading their customs to a foreign religion?

When they're dead?

Woah things are getting a mighty bit shaky here. Before you know it, there's going to be a small-scale, yet still insane religious war right here. *runs to the bomb shelter*
