Mitt Romney's father-in-law, an atheist who thought that organized religion was ridiculous, was baptized after his death by the Mormon church. Baptism of the dead is a practice of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a practice which gained national attention when the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Their Descendants complained that the church was posthumously baptizing victims of the Holocaust. Mormons believe that the dead have the choice to accept or reject the services performed for them.
Edward Davies, Ann Romney's father, was an atheist who was so strongly anti-religion that he was the only member of Ann (Davies) Romney's immediate family who did not convert to Mormonism.
