It really doesn't make a damn except for the Mormons which raises a huge ethical question.  Is it ethical to leave an entity to protect you from the machinations of some sob that would attempt to bind or otherwise alter your status after your crossing, after you cross?   I see it as ethically proper to release all those who exist in my service at the time of my crossing.  Yet, if I do that I will be unprotected from the machanations of those who would scheme to bind my spirit to the service of their fantasies.  What is the ethical response?

I'm a genealogy hobbyist, and through this I have encountered relatives who are working on our family tree for the purpose of baptising our mutual ancestors.  This horrified me and sparked a conversaton with my sweetie who was raised LDS.  According to him, Mormon baptism for the dead is a team effort.  The survivors perform the baptism, but the person who it is done for still has to accept it from beyond the grave.  This makes it relatively harmless, IMO.
