Posthumous Baptism for President Obama’s Mom

Peggy Fletcher Stack, Salt Lake Tribune, May 6, 2009; President Barack Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, who died in 1995, was baptized posthumously into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints last year during her son’s campaign, according to Salt Lake City-based researcher Helen Radkey.

 

The ritual, known as “baptism for the dead,” was done June 4 in the Provo temple, and another LDS temple rite, known as the “endowment,” was performed in the same temple on June 11, said Radkey, who found the record while doing research in the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City.

2 Thess. 2:10-11; And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.

So – did they marry her to Barack’s father or her second husband?  How does the “Families are Forever” program work in this situation?  And because some of the people involved aren’t white does that make a difference?
