Elie Wiesel rejects Mormon heaven; tells Mitt Romney not to baptize dead Jews

According to USA Today, “Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel on Tuesday called on Mitt Romney to tell the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon church) to stop doing proxy baptisms in the names of dead Jews, including Holocaust victims such as Wiesel’s parents.”

Romney has already admitted that, when he was a Mormon bishop in Boston, he participated in the practice of baptizing the dead.

I am a baptized Catholic, but I am currently a “fallen-away Catholic.”  When I die, I want to go to Catholic heaven because I was told in Catholic school that Catholic heaven will be just the way I want it to be.  I do not want to go to Mormon heaven, and I have requested that my family members, who are Mormons, not baptize me after I am dead.   The problem with this is that the Mormon Church does not recognize that there is any other heaven except Mormon heaven.  And the only way to get into Mormon heaven is to be baptized as a Mormon.  When non-Mormons die, they go to a spiritual prison where they remain for all eternity, until they are baptized in the Mormon religion.  However, non-Mormons who are baptized after they die do not have to accept this baptism — the spirit of a non-Mormon can reject Mormon heaven.

There are three levels of Mormon heaven; the highest level of heaven is only for Mormons who have been married in the Mormon temple.  To even enter a Mormon temple, one must be “temple worthy” and to be worthy, a Mormon must give 10% of his or her income to the Mormon church.

When a dead person is baptized in the Mormon church, a living Mormon, who is temple worthy, stands in for the dead spirit and is physically baptized in a Mormon temple on behalf of the dead person. Any temple worthy Mormon can be baptized multiple times on behalf of many non-Mormons.

The Mormon church has a huge geneology database, from which they select names of dead people to baptize.  Jewish people are not normally included in the geneology database.  So if Jews don’t want to wind up in Mormon heaven, all they have to do is to request that their family tree not be recorded in the database.  The problem is that some Jews have requested that their family names not be put into the Mormon database, but they have somehow gotten into the database in spite of this.  That is because anyone, including non-Mormons, can submit their family records to the Mormon database.

Elie Wiesel has no cause to worry.  After he dies, his spirit can reject Mormon heaven.  Elie Wiesel can go to hell if he so desires.
