MR says: I love it when people of other faiths defend the LDS Church.

The Latter-day Saint practice of vicarious baptism on behalf of the dead is once again a focus of controversy. In the past few weeks, it's been portrayed in the news media and on the web as unbiblical, ghoulish, bizarre, shameful, vicious, anti-Semitic, immoral, hateful, an exercise in "black magic" and (by some extremists) possibly even illegal. A national television commentator recently named President Thomas S. Monson among "the worst people in the world" for presiding over the practice.

It's high time for the view of a very respected non-Mormon scholar to be heard above the noise.

What a great Joy in Christ. I am exceedingly glad to hear this bad news. We must be doing something good, for the prophet of God has been numbered or branded like the Christ among the infirm and with the transgressors by this wicked and perverse generation. For it is written: Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (New Testament | Matthew 5:10 - 12)
