They were forced to stop this practice after outcries from the Jewish community.
You know the Jews in the old testament weren’t crazy about baptisms for the dead either, but the church of Jesus Christ will continue to work on saving ordinations for all mankind.

Sorry about the baptisms. Honestly, no offense intended. We baptize all dead people we can find records for, of all religions and cultures, not just Holocaust survivors.
When asked to stop, and we did, and we also voided all the records that had been kept on the baptisms.
The most recent time that the Church of LDS promised to stop (again) was 2010.
Yep, the Mos are so sorry that they get bust doing it every other year, after they’ve promised to stop doing it many, many times. I’ve never known honesty to be a mormon’s strong point though.
Stop it… It is so disrespectful my parents loved god and the Catholic Church my cousins had them baptized and we no longer speak to them even though we don’t believe it…it ISPs an insult to who my parents were..they hated the Mormon church…you have no right walking on people and their beliefs..disgusting
One thing I hope everyone can understand is that while yeah, we do baptize for the dead, we do it in the belief that we are simply performing the ordinance that they can no longer do for themselves without a body. We believe that in the end, it is their choice whether to accept that ordinance or not. We do it in their behalf, and then leave it up to them to decide to accept it. It is not a forced practice. If anyone has any questions on the subject, I’d be more than happy to talk to you!
