What do Imhotep, Hitler, and Dracula have in common?

What do Imhotep, Adolph Hitler, and Vlad the Impaler have in common? They are all baptized Mormons.

Mormons vicariously perform baptisms and other ordinances on behalf of deceased people. This is one of the primary purposes behind LDS temples and the main reason for the LDS genealogical program.

Famousdeadmormons.com has compiled a list of some of the more interesting dead Mormons, a sample of which is provided below. The dates indicate when the proxy ordinance was performed. Much of the information on the site was compiled from searches of LDS-owned FamilySearch.org. Due to negative publicity, the church has started to ban access to people that search for famous individuals.

The only requirement appears to be that the deceased person needs to have been dead for at least one year. Even quasi-fictional characters appear to be fair game.

Poor Timothy Leary! I bet he wished the Mormons would drop real acid like sulfuric down their throat.

History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a
free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their
political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their
own purpose. ~ Thomas Jefferson

I did a mormon unbaptising ritual last week for the entire planet. They are all free and clear now.

Carry on.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Cool. Just like the Bill Maher unbaptism of Romney's dead father-in-law.

It's good that the unbaptism is exactly as effective as the baptism was. Everything in balance.Thumbsup

Can a Mormon get a proxy baptism for fictional characters, like Captain Kirk?

I bet they've tried. King Arthur comes close to this. Most scholars the stories of Arthur (Camelot, etc.) were all fictional, but there might have been some historical figure in the 5th or 6th century upon which the legend was based.

One of the strangest LDS baptisms was Jeshua Ben Joseph, whose mother was named Mary. Most Christians would find this blasphemous.
