Nobel-laureate Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel and a top official
from the Simon Wiesenthal Center said Tuesday that Republican
presidential candidate Mitt Romney should use his stature in the Mormon
Church to block its members from posthumously baptizing Jewish victims
of the Holocaust.
Their comments followed reports that Mormons had baptized the
deceased parents of Wiesenthal, the late Holocaust survivor and
Nazi-hunter. Wiesel appeared in a church database used to identify
potential subjects of baptisms.
