Stephen Colbert posthumously baptizes (and circumsizes) Mormons

In response to Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel's extreme agitation over the Mormon church baptizing Anne Frank (over and over again!), Stephen Colbert decides to conduct his own baptism of Mormons--by circumsizing them symbolically and posthumously. What I want to know is this: if Jews are baptized in the Mormon faith, does this mean they get to go to heaven, although actively faithful Mormons can only get into the highest level of heaven if they go on a mission (male) or marry someone who has completed a mission (female).

Apparently not. According to this blog, "...Mormons believe that the spirits of the dead have the power to reject Jesus. So posthumous baptism does not conscript people into heaven. It merely offers them a chance to receive salvation, which they can reject if they wish." So they're still pretty much bound for hell, unless they posthumously become Mormons!
