Oh, Brother: Mormon Church Baptized Anne Frank

Folks, this is not going away. In fact, if Mitt Romney gets the Republican nomination, the liberal media is going to beat, beat, beat, beat, beat on his Mormon religion. Here is yet another taste of how they're going to do it. Last week, CNN interviewed Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel about the latter's displeasure with revelations that Simon Wiesenthal's parents had been put on the Mormon list of deceased Holocaust victims who needed to receive posthumous baptisms into the Mormon faith. Wiesel was also on the list and didn't like it very much.

Now, Anne Frank is on the list.

Via The Independent:
Anne Frank, the famous diarist and Holocaust victim, was put to death on account of her Jewish faith. But earlier this month, she was nonetheless secretly co-opted into the Mormon Church.

So claim researchers investigating the US-based Church’s practice of posthumously baptising dead people - sometimes without the knowledge and almost always against the will of surviving friends and family members.

Ms Frank was “christened” at a Mormon temple in the Dominican Republic, in apparent violation of a pact between the Church and Jewish leaders. A local child, acting as her spiritual proxy, is believed to have been dunked in a font during the ceremony.

Computer records of the event register Ms Frank under her full name, Annelies Marie Frank, and say that she lived from 1929 to 1945. The baptism was “completed” at a temple in Santo Domingo on 18 February.
Of course, no story like this would be complete without at least one reference to Mitt Romney. The Independent has that too:
The practice also sometimes extends to the political arena. It was recently reported that Barack Obama’s late mother, Stanley Ann Durham, had been the subject of a ceremony. And Mitt Romney, the US presidential candidate, is believed to have held one for his dead father-in-law Edward, a staunch atheist.
I contend that this is one reason team Obama is licking its chops to face Romney. Mormonism will be under an assault the likes of which we've never seen and it is likely to torpedo Romney's chances.

Yahoo News has more on this Baptizing the Dead thing. Yes, they're tying it to Romney as well.
