5. Whoever posted this cites the wrong Christian rite.

 

It should be, "Romney's campaign is so dead that he'll soon be requesting last rites."

Last rites or final prayers are what Christian priests and pastors do to someone who is minutes away from death.

Baptism in some Christian Churches happens a few weeks or months after birth or when an adult accepts Christ as his or her saviour.

I wonder who posted the original.

9. The joke is about the Mormon practice of baptizing the dead . . .

. . . So no, they did not post the "wrong Christian rite," but rather the correct Mormon rite.

Seriously-- they're keeping track of everyone they baptised posthumously!

32. Me, too. They 'baptized' some of my Quaker ancestors born here 4 centuries ago.

The Mormons were not a religion then, but their theology decided they had been around for a lot longer. Must be where Romney got that 'retroactive' thing. My people became retroactively Mormon, but weren't alive to object. Strange things that people believe.

42. I have the records of my family births, marriages and deaths back 422 years.

That's on my paternal line. On the maternal line, very little and I know some of that is because there were Cree and it appears they were relocated from the East Coast westward and not voluntarily, either. I thought to pursue that at one time, but since the living have passed on, as with many people, it's a waste of anyone's time. My brother's wife wanted some of that for her children and grandchildren, and I sent it all to her.

Back to my paternal line, one man had traveled back to Amsterdam 400 years ago to visit my great-great-etc. grandmother but the ship sank in an Atlantic storm on the return to the Americas. I have less useful records going back over 950 years. They have those old names that are a single word. I can't pronounce them, either.

Some places in the UK are named for them and one can be googled for the famous things he was part of and did in the Elizabethan era in London. Not that it has affected my life. Pictures of people of my name show the family resemblance. I discoveed strong patterns in the way they lived their lives and I've lived mine. My family never talked about it much, it was just a curiousity.

You could go to the Social Security Administration, and the US Census Bureau records. There's information on what properties were owned back to the founding of the country in the Census records and the SSA can research and find people. It's remarkable what they have.

...my point was that the much-vaunted Mormon genealogical database is terribly inaccurate, at least so far as my family goes.

I was baptized at 25. Not as much fun to have water poured on your head at that age.

16. Mitt was dying, so he called his lawyer and CPA

 

As they were gathered around the death bed, they looked at Mitt and said they were touched that he wanted his last moments to be with them.

He said "Jesus died between two thieves, and I will too!

27. I recently found out the Mormons posthumously baptized some of my ancestors . . .

uncovered this while doing research for family tree. I understand that they regularly baptize those of Jewish heritage. My mother thought this was kind of sweet, but I think it's insulting.

Have been good about LDS here.

Take a bow all of you DU folks.

It still is so different in so many ways from other religions. It is very different for us agnostics.

Now I guess I can say that to me it is pretty bizarre. it seems more like a country club than a church.
