Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys says this about it.



...the boy after a time becomes weak and nervous and shy, he gets headaches and probably palpitation of the heart, and if he still carries it on too far he very often goes out of his mind and becomes an idiot".

More American fundamentalism, with the accent on the word 'mental'.

Oh dear... the US does seem to have it's fair share of strange people. The problem with this one is that he's an elected politician in a sensitive role that he's no business being anywhere near.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

He may well find himself in good company should this fellow manage to get elected president of the USA. :o

a ceremony was held to invite Mr Davies into the Church of Latter Day Saints one year after he died.

Did he accept?

The thing is, right, yeh, OK is that all politicians of all persuasions have strange and dangerous beliefs. If we rejected all politicians on this basis there would be none left!.

oh. er...hang on... :) :)

I visited the Mormon temple just before it was opened in Chorley, and they mentioned these mass baptism ceremonies on the tour (the font is particularly massive and very impressive, if I remember rightly its on the back of a life sized herd of carved stone buffaloes). I didn't find it massively creepy as I've always viewed any ceremony that happens after death as completely for the family. I'm a humanist though so that probably explains it.
