Now, Mormon church in US baptises Gandhi.

WASHINGTON: Mahatma Gandhi has been baptised in proxy by a US church, drawing sharp reaction from his grandson and others.

Gandhi was baptised by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), headquartered in Salt Lake City in Utah on March 27, 1996; the confirmation of which was completed on November 17, 2007 at Sao Paulo Brazil Temple, according to researcher Helen Radkey.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) is more popularly known as Mormon Church, one of the fastest growing churches in the US.

Radkey, who has now been excommunicated by the Mormons , made the revelation in an e-mail to Nevada-based Hindu activist, Rajan Zed.

In the email, Radkey, who is from Salt Lake City, said she viewed the record on baptism of Gandhi on February 16 but it had since disappeared and was no longer available in the database of the church.

It was unusual for a record to vanish, said Radkey, who of late has been in news because of bringing out in the public similar unknown facts and secrets of the Mormon Church.

I have not come across other Indian leaders baptised by Mormons. My copies of the Gandhi record are dated February 16, 2012. The record disappeared shortly after that date. I assume Mormons did not want others to know about Gandhi's baptism," she said.

Arun Gandhi, a grandson of Gandhi who lives in Up State New York, told The Huffington Post that he was "surprised" to hear about the posthumous baptism. "It bothers me in the sense that people are doing something when a person is dead and gone and there is nobody to answer for that person. That's not the right thing to do," he was quoted as saying.

Arun, who teaches nonviolence in the US, noted that his grandfather was against proselytizing of any kind, whether it involved Hindus or others.

He thought people must decide for themselves which religion they want to follow and they should follow that religion. It's not up to others to force them. He was respectful of all the religions."

Suhag Shukla of Washington-based Hindu America Foundation said, "The proxy baptism of Gandhi is deeply offensive, not only to Gandhi's legacy as a devout Hindu, but to Hindus world over.

America Hindus initiated Jesus into Viashnavism
Hindus of greater Atlanta today performed a namakaranam for baby Jesus in a grand ceremony and initiated him into Hinduisim's Vaisgnava branch.

The name given to him is 'Hari Dasa'.

A big Om to American Hindus for coming up with this great idea.

Mormonism teaches that all churches except the Mormon Church are an abomination in the sight of God

My brother was taught this in the MTC [Missionary Training Center] in the 1960's and was told that the pope was the leader of the church of the devil.

Mormon goal - to baptize everyone on this planet
This cult is now declaring that their ultimate goal is to baptize everyone on this planet, according to a report on the french news channel Fr24.

The Mormon teachings and beliefs are incredibly insane. Some Mormons actually believe that in the eternal afterlife, every husband and wife will get a planet of their own to rule over in eternity. That is supposed to be the extension of the family life on earth continuing to the after life, which means every man aong with his numerous wives (since Mormons allow/endorse polygamy) gets to occupy a planet.

Some interesting view below:

Neo-Nazis protest the baptism of Hitler by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS)
Furious Neo-Nazis protest the baptism of Hitler by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS)

In a dramatic turn of events last night, the LDS church, popularly known as the Mormon church, announced that it had baptized Adolf Hitler. The public announcement evoked an outcry of condemnation from the Neo-Nazis throughout Europe. The organization was outraged that their beloved Fuhrer had been involuntarily taken to Heaven, where he is expected to join other famous personalities such as Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Mother Theresa, who, the Mormon church's spokesperson said, have been languishing in Heaven as a result of the church's generosity....

Mormons! Aham Brahmasmi !
Mormons are a threat to Catholicism. This is the only sect in Christianity which says you can become GOD. Therefore, I think they more closer to 'reality' than any other christian faith. And, we must welcome them to India because they have to learn a lot from the Hindus.

Church of Latrine Day Saints
This church is one group which is on a huge expansion spree. I had seen their outfit in Indiranagar bangalore more than 10-15 years back ( a small place) . Very recently I saw theeir board on a main road in Mahadevapura are of KR Puram in Bangalore ( about 2 / 3 acres and they are building a huge Latrine there also. Where are the funds coming in for such acquisitions. Moreover this was a place reserved for industrial purposes. Not a murmur of protest against these mormons from anybody in bangalore. action will be envisaged after they manage to damage our society completely. Who cares other than some mad people like us raving and ranting AND doing nothing.

Now, mormon church
What is the baptised name ? Or like our local imitators have the mormons retained his Hindu name, and not given a christian name ! Mormons should be informed that the desert gods have been Hinduised and given Hindu names in Kerala.

Now, Moron church in US baptises Gandhi
These Morons should have first baptised Jesus since he was Hindu and had learnt the yoga and meditation in Kashmir and after he was driven out of Israel he lived in Kashmir as a Hindu saint and died there. So the Morons need to first understand Jesus was a Hindu.
Every man going out of the Hindu pale is not only a man less but also an enemy the more.
