(Besides, don't forget: The "U" used to be The University of Deseret! ;))

And theyve been in apostasy ever since they changed their name;)

Hey, if the U was good enough for President Hinckley, President Faust, and others, it's good enough for me! :D:rofl:

...The confusion about "attain{ing} membership" in the Church is understandable, given both the text of the unsigned affidavit and the tradition of baptizing infants in the heavily-Catholic Philippines. ...

 

 

In fairness, it's not as though nothing associated with membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints occurs between the time a child is given a name and a blessing (usually as an infant) and the time the child is baptized at the age of eight.  When a child is given a name and a blessing, usually, a record also is created for him or her.

Another news item here.  Some snippets:

Quote

The U.S. woman accused of trying to 'smuggle' a six-day-old baby out of the Philippines concocted a bizarre scheme to pose as his aunt with the help of the baby's mother, a teenage wannabe reality TV star, DailyMail.com can reveal.
...
Talbot, a mother of five from Sandy, Utah, was carrying Dulap's affidavit as she attempted to 'sneak' baby Andrew onto a Delta flight from Manila to Detroit on Wednesday.

In it, Dulap allegedly provided three reasons for her child's trip to the States: one to 'receive a name and blessing' and membership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, two to receive American medical vaccines and three, 'to meet his Great Grandmother before she passes on.'

The affidavit purportedly written by the 19-year-old Filipino described Andrew's great-grandmother' as 'on end of life care.' 

'To meet his great grandmother, my son will travel to Ohio first then to Utah with his aunt,' it stated. 

'Tentative dates of travel are as soon as possible as my son's great grandmother is about to pass at any time. She is on "end of life" care.'

Despite this claim Talbot, who is originally from Ohio, has no surviving grandparents on either her mother or father's side.

Again, a very odd story.
