I can't understand the Vatican's stand.  All Catholics are baptized in the Catholic Church first and that's the baptism that counts....so what's the dif if the Mormons do it again in their church?  It won't count anyway.

I've never heard of it.  How do you baptize someone  posthumously?

I'm  happy to sign this petition urging early release of the Irish 1926 
records. Catholic subscribers to these lists might also consider writing 
their
bishops about the recent Vatican directive that Catholic dioceses  should not
share
parish registers with the LDS to prevent them from  baptizing Catholics
posthumously. I think the good that is done for  genealogists of all faiths
by having
access to records through the LDS far  outweighs the annoyance of posthumous
baptism. Since Catholics don't  believe posthumous baptism has any affect,
it's
hard to see it as more  than an annoyance. (I'm not trying to start a
theological  discussion/argument, just offering a suggestion.)
