Well, guess what, I don't like the church's action, both in this thread and the other one. I find them repugnant, and if tolerating them isn't enough for you, tough titties. You can call me a hater if you like, but considering the authority behind that insult, I take it as a complement.

Yes, all men are sinners and fall short of the glory of God. One does not have to celebrate the sin; but its ok to celebrate the life of the sinner.
There is no doubt more to this story than what has been posted in this thread. The OP was pretty much just an account from the family of the deceased and the other was a paraphrase of his words. If it turns out that the pastor just canned the ceremony in mid-stream because he saw a photo that offended him then that would certainly change my opinion.
Why did the family choose to hold this woman's funeral at a church that did not support or agree with this woman's life? If you ask me, it is a slap in the face to someone that is gay or lesbian to hold their funeral at a anti-gay church.
It is not as though there are not plenty of denominations out there that are tolerant and accepting of gays and lesbians so why not hold the funeral at one of them?

I think it's awful, and I am sorry for all concerned.
