When a two-thousand-year-old Middle Eastern resurrection cult butts heads with a 19th century revision of a two-thousand-year-old Middle Eastern resurrection cult, something's got to give:
NEW YORK (AP) -- Holocaust survivors said Monday they are through trying to negotiate with the Mormon church over posthumous baptisms of Jews killed in Nazi concentration camps, saying the church has repeatedly violated a 13-year-old agreement barring the practice.

Read the whole article and be amazed that people are actually fighting about this mythological nonsense. People are very upset! People are very stupid! And, no, before you say anything, I really don't have to respect anything about either side of this dizzyingly stupid conflict. It's 2008! OMG, they made Aunt Esther a Mormon! And she hated Utah!
