Not satisfied with converting all their ancestors, the Mormons got their sticky hands on the world’s most famous Hindu, Mahatma Gandhi, whose real name was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (“Mahatma” means “Great Soul,” a nickname coined by Tagore).
HuffPo has the details and proof:
A screen shot of the database page sent to HuffPost by Radkey [Helen Radkey, a former Mormon who researches this stuff] shows a proxy baptism for Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was completed in a Salt Lake City Temple on March 27, 1996. The record has since been removed and Radkey said a subsequent search came up with “Unknown Name.”
A request to a church spokesman for comment on the alleged baptism by proxy of Gandhi was not immediately returned.
Too late—perhaps Gandhi has already doffed his dhoti and is wearing magic Mormon underwear in heaven.
I tell you, that’s one crazy religion.
