this is just wrong.
does a business not have the right to refuse services
Number one, Churches aren't business'. They are given non-profit status in this country.
Number two, what would Jesus have done? Jesus definetly wouldn't have broken a promise like these "christians", and reneged on the funeral service. And I'm quite sure Jesus wouldn't deny ANY human being, a funeral service.
a non-profit business still has the right to refuse service ...
the tale of sodom and gomorrah is an interesting story ....
So now in order to be politically correct people are supposed to go against the VERY things they grouped together for? The Church in question disagrees with homeosexual relations. They had every reason to refuse he service. In fact they did more than they had to, they offered food, a place to hold the service and help.
It is called freedom of religion, perhaps you would like to explain to a Muslim why they should hold services for a gay couple?
Let he who is without sin...
The church, being a private organization, does have every right to deny its services. You're exactly right-- that's why it's called freedom of religion.
On the flipside of the coin (for me at least), I look at this morally (according to my own moral standards), not legally. Homosexuality, according to Christianity is a sin. It is one of many, many, many sins. Every person on this planet has sinned in one way or another throughout his/her entire life. And I'm willing to bet that this church, along with every other church on the face of the earth, has buried someone who has sinned. If you're going to deny someone a funeral service because of the sin of homosexuality, then the church should deny every person who has ever sinned during their lifetime.
open your own church..... hold all the gay funerals and marriages and baptisism you want
I'm going to side with the church. First, they didn't just deny him a funeral. They denied a funeral in which his homosexuality would be praised. Since that goes directly against their beliefs, they have every right to say no. Second, there are plenty of homosexual-friendly churches that would probably let you play gay porn at the funeral - so go there. Will liberalism be satisfied until every last human being has had a lobotomy to follow the liberal beliefs?
Maybe thats Cys (DCD) problem...a botched operation.......
