Family: Church in Lakewood stops woman's funeral because she was gay - The Denver Post

The family only rented the space and used their own pastor.
A week before the event the church's pastor was given a copy of the video that they planned to show.
He did not look at it. He did not provide the family with any rules related to his anti-gay taboo.
Fifteen minutes after the scheduled start time the church's pastor voiced his objection to a photo of the deceased with her partner shown in the video and told them to edit out the photo. (which was not possible at the time)
When they showed the video he halted the event.
Later, the pastor apologized.
I have other posts with quotes and links to a few more articles that verify this information. None of the many articles I looked at dispute the facts.
Seems kind of silly, if true. A dead person has no sexuality. And if you are a church and believe in God, then the person being dead is already being judged, so why continue the ignorance here?

"...The pastor who called off the funeral defended his actions to KCNC, saying he hadn't been aware of the video until right before the service, and that he gave the family the chance to edit it.
"New Hope did their absolutely very best to accommodate this family in their hour of need,"Chaplain Gary Rolando said.
He also told KMGH, "We don't want overt, open homosexuality in our sanctuary." But he did offer an apology, saying, "New Hope is very sorry. ... It's very sad that it happened the way that it did."

I have read several articles, none of which indicate that advanced notice (more than 15 minutes) was provided to the family. All such claims are a lie.
