Are Mormons really Jews?
After controversial baptisms, the Mormons block their ancestral databases
The "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," commonly known as Mormons, has recently come under increasing criticism for the controversial proxy baptisms of Jews murdered in concentration camps.
The management of the Mormons then blocked their databases for genealogical research, so that members of the community no longer have access to the names of hundreds of thousands of Jewish Holocaust murderers, or even to persons who, according to Mormon standards, have not been baptized by proxy may be.
The "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" was criticized after alleged proxy baptisms of Anne Frank, murdered in the concentration camp, and relatives of the Jewish Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal (1908-2005) became known. The church leadership distanced itself from the events and announced sanctions against those responsible. A circular was issued to the believers to prohibit the baptism of Jewish Holocaust victims and other unauthorized persons.
The closure of the genealogical databases is now also criticized because the Mormons no longer allowed public access to the information and thus created the impression that they had something to hide, said the Jewish genealogist Gary Mokotoff, who has been working on the since the 1990s Was involved in negotiations with the Mormons that led to the official abandonment of the proxy baptism of Jews.
Mormon belief is that baptism received from a proxy enables the deceased to have access to eternal salvation. Members of other religions and beliefs see this as an impermissible encroachment and impairment of their religious self-determination.
