Mormon church to warn members of proxy baptisms

Mormon church leaders say its policy of not performing proxy baptisms of Holocaust victims and others unrelated to church members will be reiterated worldwide during Sunday services.
The announcement follows outrage over recent claims that temples posthumously baptized Anne Frank and other Holocaust victims.
The Anti-Defamation League on Friday applauded the extra step to educate members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints about the practice.
The organization expressed outrage this week when it was revealed that Holocaust victims were still being posthumously baptized even after a 1990s agreement with the church that the practice would end.
Most recently it was revealed that Anne Frank and Jewish Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was murdered in Pakistan, were baptized after their deaths.
