I understand how the Jewish people feel and the Mormon people feel as both have sincere beliefs that seemingly collide with the beliefs of each other. Perhaps the honorable Rabbi would be willing to look at the issue from a Mormon perspective and then maybe he would understand just how much Mormons have been willing to do for the Jews. It is easy to assume that the Mormons are not trying to accommodate the Jews in this issue but consider this; Mormons have given the Jewish people something they have not given to any other group of people on earth. That is to say that Mormons have set up a frame work to inhibit the baptism of the deceased Jewish people. Rabbi Dorsch seems to think that the Mormons were insincere with their offer to attempt to stop baptism of dead Jews. As a former Mormon one thing I can attest to is that Mormons are many things but liars are not among them. Granted Jews are still being baptized however I would say this is an issue with a system error rather than Mormons being untrustworthy. For the Mormon people it would have been far easier for them to tell the Jewish people to bugger off. But the respect the Mormons have for the Jewish people compels the Mormons to reach a compromise. If you continue to criticize Mormons for their beliefs then what you will find is that the avenues for compromise will quickly close and you will get nothing out of this but hurt feelings. This should be an opportunity for both parties to come together and work at getting the kinks out of the system rather than start the conversation off with argument and accusation. After all you want something that the Mormons do not have to give you.
