“Mormons worship a god named Elohim, an exalted man of flesh and bones living near a planet called ‘Kolob’. During temple rituals, Mormons chant to Elohim of planet Kolob: ‘Oh God, hear the words of my mouth.” Women are required to veil their faces during prayers.”
“The Mormon practice of converting souls of deceased non-Mormons is done in secret, in the basement of Mormon temples. Children are used as representatives of the dead in these rituals, performed in a pool above horned oxen statues.”
“This young Hispanic girl is being used to represent the souls of deceased Latina women whom Mormons are ‘converting after death’ through the secret baptismal ritual.”
The Mormon faith has been known for being particularly secretive about its ceremonies and practices. But in a world of hidden cameras and tiny microphones, secrets don't survive long. In this footage, called "Behind the Veil," non-Mormons are allowed to witness what they've been missing with their apostate lifestyles.
Maybe it's genuinely sensational, or maybe it's just appears so because of the secretiveness, but it doesn't seem much stranger than eating the flesh of your Lord and Savior on Earth who is also the Creator of Earth before hanging around a bunch of pro-life bumper stickers, eating donuts with people with ten screaming children. Except they've got secret handshakes, and that's pretty rad.
