(1 of 2) LDS Church condemns recent proxy baptism of Anne Frank

Via: Fox13Now.com – Salt Lake City

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has condemned the recent proxy baptism of Anne Frank, the Jewish girl whose diary of hiding from the Nazis has provided generations with a first-hand account of life during the Holocaust.

Frank is the third Holocaust victim to have received a “baptism for the dead” in recent weeks. The baptism is a violation of a pact the LDS Church made in 1995 to no longer proxy baptize Holocaust victims. The LDS Church confirmed it happened over the weekend at the faith’s temple in the Dominican Republic.

The LDS Church has since condemned the proxy baptism, calling is a violation of their policy and believe it took a great deal of “deception” for it to happen.
