President Barack Obama’s mother was posthumously baptized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on June 4, 2008. That’s the day after Obama won enough delegates to get the Democratic nomination. Graphic below of the LDS information regarding her:
Okay look, as you all know I tend not to differentiate one superstitious belief, and set of bizarre ritualistic behaviors, from another, but THIS has changed my mind.
Who in the fuck, does something like this? Who has so little respect for an individual's personal belief, or lack thereof, to take it upon themselves to baptize them into THEIR religious faith?
I know it has no real effect on Ms. Dunham, and I know that it is simply a ridiculous ritual that speaks to a belief by the Mormon church that if they don't do this these unbaptized people will not be allowed into their heaven, but it is STILL an incredibly invasive, and unbelievably creepy, thing to do to someone's loved one.
If I were President Obama THIS would make me not only want to beat Mitt Romney in the election, but crush him like a bug under my fucking heel!
Seriously, once again, who DOES something like this? And what does THAT say about how they view the rights of the rest of us?
