    Had you bothered to read the rest of what has been provided in this thread you would have found that the so called video had been misplaced.
    A replacement video was provided. It was upon seeing that which cause the problem.

    Rolando, another friend of Collier's family, said New Hope Ministries "dropped the ball" by misplacing the video that the family originally gave them the day before the funeral.

    "They lost the video and asked for another copy," he told KMGH. "When it was reviewed, they realized there was content that involved kissing."

    Rolando said the church had passed the $400 fee that the family paid for the service to the funeral home. The family wants their money back, Silva said.

    Obviously. You only care about what the gay person's standards were. Which is why you object.

    By all accounts they did.

    Again.

    This really isn't about being together in pictures. But being engaged in homosexual behavior in said pictures.
    A Chapel/Church does not have to be part of that and is within their "right" to refuse to allow such depictions.
    If you do not understand that, that is your problem.


    Bottom line is that a choice was made not to continue, which is on her gay friend, not on the Chapel.



    And since you are the thread starter and obviously didn't pay attention to that which came before.

    Higley wrote on Facebook: "Vanessa's services were NOT refused because she is a 'lesbian'. Her services were refused because we would not let New Hope Ministries 'edit' her life which was a slideshow of our family photos including our engagement and family photos of her and I with our two children! It never crossed my mind that it would be an issue considering we paid to use their facility ONLY. We brought in our own Pastor to facilitate. I would completely understand if we were asking to be married there and it be a conflict of interest.

    As that is supposedly from the other gay party's mouth, it totally destroys the title of this thread.

    You have no idea what was presented as a 'video'. Its every bit as likely it was made using a desktop program which can be altered by deleting two photos, letting the music adjust automatically, and hitting save. You project what you want because you want to be right.

    Regardless. The pastor appeared perfectly willing to love the sinner. What has everyones panties twisted is that he dared to not allow for the sin.
