What if Mormons are right and Catholics and Protestants wrong?

The Belfast Telegraph had a great article today
. I just had to provide a link to it. For those of you who don't want to read the whole thing here is a snippet.

'Given Christian teaching, does it make more sense to baptize dead adults rather than live babies?"

"What’s the difference, anyway, between baptising the dead and baptising babies? A tiny infant will have as much understanding as a dead person — none at all — of the complex philosophical belief-system it’s being inducted into when baptised".

"Indeed, given that all Christian Churches believe that the soul lives on after death and retains understanding and consciousness of self, doesn’t it make more sense to baptise dead adults than live babies?"
