This isn’t exactly breaking news; it’s been going on for far too long. Nonetheless the opening sentence caught me by surprise.
Holocaust survivors said Monday they are through trying to negotiate with the Mormon church over posthumous baptisms of Jews killed in Nazi concentration camps, saying the church has repeatedly violated a 13-year-old agreement barring the practice.
They were negotiating? Negotiating?! I hope that was just an unfortunate choice of words because this might be the very reason that the term “non-negotiable” was created. Negotiation should start and end with this: Stop being crass, self-righteous, insensitive jackasses. And do it right fucking now.
