I find I must speak up, even if I offend friends and relatives. In regard to the Feb. 24 letter, "Some Jews want publicity for attack on LDS." If baptizing the dead means nothing, then why do it? Personally I find it very offensive, religion is very personal and private. How would the LDS Church feel if this practice was performed on their members without permission? The church is only hurting themselves by performing this practice. I know friends and family whose youth baptize for the dead, not fully understanding what they are performing.
