Part of the secret Mormon temple ceremony (the endowment) includes learning the four secret handshakes and their secret passwords which will enable faithful Mormons to enter past the angels guarding the gates of the highest level of heaven (the “celestial kingdom”). I learned them when I went through that ceremony, when we Mormons still had to mime the punishment of having our throats slit and our chests ripped open, if we should reveal them. (They are actually copies of 19th century Masonic grips and penalties).
