church cancels gay man's funeral

63 posts in this topic

It's their church why not?  The only issue I see is them canceling it 1 day before.  They should of never scheduled it, if they had no plans to do it.

No one should be denied a funeral.  This was just wrong.

The church wasn't aware of all the facts before agreeing to do the funeral.  I am fine with their decision.

Seems okay to me.  They weren't aware they were both men who were married.  Homosexuality is a sin and maybe they didn't want it part of their church.

If you read the article, the pastor was aware before he agreed to do it.

I didn't get that from the article.  It never says the Pastor was aware the man was a homosexual.  It says he made the arrangements and notices went out, but it doesn't say he knew the man was gay.  Even if he did, I think the church officials had every right to object.

Really? I didn't read the article to the bottom.  But a little bit over half way and it gave me the assumption that 'after he found out he had a husband' in their words he canceled.

He cancelled it after the notices went out bc people were upset. And I do think if they don't want to do a service for a homosexual, they shouldn't do it. But they shouldn't agree to do it then cancel with one day notice. People are under enough stress at those times without the church adding to it.

If everyone knew up front the guy was a homosexual, I would agree that they shouldn't have cancelled it, but according to the article, it seems clear they weren't aware of it.  I believe the church was well within it's rights to cancel the funeral, and they did try to make other arrangements.
