Obama to meet with President-Prophet of Mormon Church (which baptized his mother last year )

Today, Barack Obama is meeting with the President-Prophet of the Mormon Church, Thomas Monson. This is how that meeting appears on the White House guidance for today:

The President will meet with Senate Majority Leader Reid and Latter-Day Saints Church President Monson. This meeting is closed press.

As we reported in May, the Mormon Church posthumously baptized Obama’s mother, Stanley Anne Dunham last year. Mormons do that. They baptize your relatives, without your knowledge or permission, after they’re dead – in order to forcibly convert them to the Mormon faith. Seriously.

Jake Tapper
, from ABC News, got confirmation last May from Mormon headquarters – they did in fact baptize Obama’s mother last summer:

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints confirmed Tuesday afternoon that someone improperly, posthumously baptized the late mother of President Obama into the Mormon faith.

Last June 4 — the day after then-Sen. Obama secured enough delegates to win the Democratic presidential nominee — someone had the president’s mother Stanley Ann Dunham, who died in 1995 of cancer, baptized.

On June 11, she received the endowment.

The White House had no comment.

The baptism and endowment which appear on FamilySearch.org, the LDS Church’s genealogical site, were first reported by John Aravosis at the liberal Americablog.

So, Obama and Monson should have plenty to discuss.
