I don't recall anyone even implying that. I think we all understand this basic
doctrine pretty well: either you must be baptized and confirmed in this life or have
someone do the temple work for you before you can enter the Celestial Kingdom. That's
clearly scriptural and official Church doctrine.
Some of us do have questions about the spirit world because we haven't heard of any
revelations to clarify things. For example, since Mother Theresa was not baptized
does she go to spirit prison? The scriptures do imply "yes" but I think there is room
for interpretation. Since people live varying degrees of righteousness or wickedness
they can't all be in the state of the wicked as described in the Book of Mormon; "in
darkness, and a state of awful, fearful looking for the fiery indignation of the wrath
of God upon them". We know, for example, that the signers of the Declaration of
Independence appeared in the St. George temple demanding that their temple work be
done. So obviously their version of spirit prison was not total as would presumably
be the case with the truly wicked.
