From The Denver Post:
Family: Lakewood church refuses funeral service because woman was gay
"A Lakewood minister refused to hold a memorial service on Saturday for a mother of two at his church because the woman was gay, family and friends said Tuesday.
'Her casket was open, flowers laid out and hundreds of people sitting in the pews,' supporters said in a Facebook post. "He collected money for the funeral and has yet to return it."
Vanessa Collier was 33 when she died on Dec. 29, leaving behind her wife and children.
'You will not find Jesus at New Hope but you will find hypocrisy,' said a sign carried at a demonstration outside the church Tuesday by about four dozen family members and friends."
There they go again! Gay people "shoving their lifestyle" in good Christians' faces! Even when they're dead FFS!
I'm pretty sure the Savior that pastor pretends to honor and love with great humility every Sunday would throw up copiously after hearing what he did. Now wait for the usual "He's not REALLY a Christian!" as an excuse for this horrid treatment of a bereaved family.
But all one has to do is visit some of the rabid extreme rightwing blogs to see that many religious conservatives would be in complete agreement with the ungodly pastor who committed this insult against all that is humanly decent. I've read far too often the blatherings of hate-filled fanatics who see everything gay people do as a threat to their loving Christian way of life.
But wait! There's even more Stupid:
