Do you feel the Church of Latter Day Saints (and any other sects who may do this as well) have a right to baptize those who are already deceased? Does it not seem disrespectful to anyone but me??
So say your great-great-great-great grandfather was Jewish and now you are a member of the LDS church; you can go and put his name on a list to be baptized so that (in their mind) he can be saved & you can be reunited in the afterlife.
I think that is incredibly presumptious of people!! I would be so offended I think I would rise from the dead and haunt my decendants if they tried such a thing! (lol kidding)
But seriously; I find this incredibly rude; offensive; arrogant; ... IDK I could come up with names all day; just plain ass wrong.
What do you ladies think?

Hey no one can tell anyone for sure what happens when you die. At least they are doing something that they feel is helping people once they have passed rather than damning them to hell. Like someone else said, I'd rather they do what they do after I'm dead rather then harassing me when I am alive and bad mouthing my existence
