“Baptism for the Dead is an LDS invention to attempt to baptize every person who has ever died (by proxy, which means that a living person is baptized in behalf of the dead person). In this way, all who have passed on (and were not exposed to the Church while living) will have the opportunity to go to the highest degree of heaven (exclusively; with other Mormons) because someone was baptized in their behalf on earth.”
