The Last Judgment by Gustave Doré
I hate to put a damper on what’s an otherwise lighthearted blog. But that’s life.
An individual with whom I shared an inimitable relationship died a month ago. A month ago tomorrow. Assuming I finish writing this today. Which I won’t. It’ll take some time to organize the obstinate, disheveled thoughts which accompany this particular loss. Continue reading…

Mormon Church Tries to Limit Baptism of Deceased Jews
Now, you may be wondering, “What the fuck?”
If that’s the case, clearly someone isn’t reading enough news.
Incase you’re unaware: Yes, the Mormon church engages in forced, post-mortem baptisms. Which means they “baptize” dead people who were never baptized whilst living. Like, regardless of anything the person ever said or stood for, or what the deceased’s kin say.
Oh, and they do it to dead Jews. And not just any dead Jews. Dead holocaust victims.
Because if you’re gonna do some weird freaky Mormon shit, why not just say, “fuck it,” and make it as distasteful and inconsiderate of everyone else as possible. That’s how Mormons roll, I guess.
This spurred me to start a theme of posts dissecting the issue of Mormons’ weirdness.
So, to be clear, reason number one Mormons are weird is that they perform post-mortem baptisms on Jews who died during the holocaust.
