Mormon Missionaries In Mexico Lure Children With Promises Of Food, Attempt To Baptize Them Without Parental Consent
Four Mormon missionaries in Anáhuac, Chihuahua, Mexico were detained last Thursday night after they attempted to baptize three local children without parental knowledge or consent. According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, the Mormon missionaries in Mexico were all from other states in Mexico, and they apparently had plans to baptize three minor brothers, two 11-year-olds and a 9-year-old, without consulting the children’s parent(s).
According to the boy’s father, the Mormon missionaries lured the children to a local church with promises of food. Once they were there, the four Mexican Mormon missionaries then urged the boys to take off their clothing and put on baptismal garments. It was at that point that the young children became frightened by the intentions of the Mormon missionaries and ran away from the church to tell their parents what happened.
