Mormons baptized slain reporter Daniel Pearl
Mormons have posthumously baptized Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter killed by Islamic terrorists in Karachi, Pakistan in 2002. His last words included an affirmation of his Jewish faith. Mormons baptize deceased Jews and members of other religions as part of a rite intended to give them access to salvation. But the practice has stirred outrage among some Jewish leaders. In 1995, the church, after meeting with Jewish leaders, agreed to stop baptizing Holocaust victims.
