...And to all the people that have suggested that Teri should have been kept alive because she wouldn't "know" the difference anyway... I am wondering where you would draw the line... If a Jewish person is in a coma, can we baptize them against their wishes? They won't know... What could we do to comatose person hat you would find over the line?

You can bet that if nobody outside the LDS church ever complained, they would still be doing it.

There's a reason they don't hang out in the parking lots of other churches.
