Mormons told 'baptism' to convert the dead is outlawed

Mormon leaders across the United States have reminded congregations that their church has expressly forbidden the practice of performing proxy "baptisms" on deceased non-Mormons, and Holocaust victims in particular.

It was recently revealed that Anne Frank and the murdered reporter Daniel Pearl had both been posthumously "converted" to Mormonism in special ceremonies.

The Mormon Church officially ended the practice of proxy conversion in the 1990s.
