It was reported today by Haaretz that the Huffington Post claims that “Holocaust victim Anne Frank was baptized posthumously by a Mormon.” According to Mormon belief, the spirit of a person who is baptized after death has the option to accept or reject Mormon baptism. I previously blogged about Mormon heaven here.
There is no way that the spirit of Anne Frank will accept Mormon baptism. When tourists visit the famous building where Anne hid in the attic during World War II, the first thing they see is a photo of Anne at the age of 13 and this famous quote from her diary, which she wrote on April 9, 1944:
“One day this terrible war will be over. The time will come when we will be people again, and not just Jews! We can never be just Dutch, or just English, or whatever, we will always be Jews as well. But then, we’ll want to be.”
I am sure that the spirit of Anne Frank is hiding somewhere in a spirit attic in spirit prison, so that she will not be dragged into Mormon heaven against her will. Anne could never spend eternity with the Mormons — she will always be a Jew.
I previously blogged here about what Anne Frank might have written if she had continued writing her diary after her hiding place was found. I have written a detailed description of Anne’s hiding place on my website here.
