And it is not just praying. And a difference between your battlefield analogy is that the Mormon church KNOWS these people were/are not Mormon. Its not a battlefield expression of comfort. It is an incredibly disrepectful act on someone who already chose their faith.
I am a Christian. I believe the Mormon religion is false.

That being said, if one of them found my corpse and performed some rite on it I couldn't care less. I believe their religion is false so what they are doing has no meaning. If I ended up dead in Saudi Arabia and was given a Muslim burial, I don't care about that either. I'm dead. I believe their religion is false and so the motions they are going through have no meaning, and my faith is eternally secure. They can't "make" me a Mormon. Their actions are meaningless so why would I find this deeply offensive?
