You're not only a diehard proabort, but you are anti-womanhood & anti-motherhood to boot.
You're not a feminist at all. Reading between the lines, you wish you were born w/ a penis.
That's what all the women say about you.

Nonsense. When someone dies, their soul goes to G-d immediately if that's where its going. They dont hang around waiting for some church bullshit.
Ah crap you mean I can't hang around to see how many show up?

1) already addressed.
2) I threw you a sop and referred to "person"; how is that dehumanizing?
3) When that "temporary location" is another person's body, damn right that person decides whether it remains or not. You're the one dehumanizing--you treat women like the property of the fetus.

When life begins is a biological one: at conception. "Personhood" is subjective.

You are trying to dehumanize human beings, again, Petey. Pregnancy is how mankind was created to procreate.

Petey: A fetus cannot have more rights than a born person.
You discriminate to death based on temporary location, size, stage of human development. As a gay man, I thought you preach "tolerance".

Really? And if it was her wish to have a Jewish service and it was my wish for her to have one; would you re-consider????????

You're so stupid Knutter. Seems to me that you only recognize Catholicism as the ONLY religion in the world and anyone who doesn't believe as you do is doomed to "eternal damnation."

If you believe killing is wrong, and you believe rape is wrong; if I killed a man who was trying to rape you; would you still consider both actions wrong?
Defense rests.
I think that would be a tough case to prove . That is that the killing was neccessary.

Yes.

"Morality (from the Latin moralitas "manner, character, proper behavior") is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are "good" (or right) and those that are "bad" (or wrong). The philosophy of morality is ethics. A moral code is a system of morality (according to a particular philosophy, religion, culture, etc.) and a moral is any one practice or teaching within a moral code. Morality may also be specifically synonymous with "goodness" or "rightness." Immorality is the active opposition to morality (i.e. opposition to that which is good or right), while amorality is variously defined as an unawareness of, indifference toward, or disbelief in any set of moral standards or principles.[1][2][3][4] An example of a moral code is the Golden Rule which states that, "One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself."[5]

And a hale and hearty, "Who cares?" Mom sure didn't. She'd outlived all her close friends, her parents, her husband, and a child. She didn't have much interest in a mass. And why do you think I give a fu** what the RCC wants?

What Every Catholic needs to know about funerals
The funeral Mass is a final opportunity to commend the deceased to Godís mercy, and thatís why it must be done with reverence
By Brian Fraga - OSV Newsweekly, 10/9/2011
How do you want your body handled after your death?
All natural. Pop me in a box and bury me.
Funeral home special. Embalming and make-up before burial.
Ashes to ashes! Cremate me.
Not sure.

It is one of the most important events a Catholic community celebrates in a personís life, but one so often misunderstood and increasingly ignored.
The funeral Mass.
The funeral liturgy in a church setting is a final opportunity to commend the deceased to Godís mercy, and to reflect on how the personís life mirrored the love and teachings of Jesus Christ, who promises that one day, the Christian will rise again and live with him in the New Jerusalem. Forever.
ďIn order to pray for the repose of the personís soul, and to pray for the family, the best way to do so is the Mass, because itís in the Mass that we read from the Gospels, that we encounter the Lord Jesus and his mercy,Ē said Father Roger Landry, a priest of the Diocese of Fall River, Mass.
ďThe Mass is the source of hope for those who have seen a loved one die, in that the family can see that their loved one might not die, but live forever. Itís one of the greatest means by which the Christian community comes together to support a grieving family,Ē Father Landry told Our Sunday Visitor.

He made many public choices over the last eighty years. Many of which didn't seem like good ones. If he stands by them in the face of God, that is his choice too.

A funeral Mass is given to every Catholic. It is more for the family and a tradition.
Everyone is redeemable. We don't know what was in his heart at the end of his life.

Don't you think that the people in family court are the result of a irresponsible and reckless lifestyle rather than a disillusionment with motherhood
Rather than? No. You might not either, if you'd ever worked with at risk teenage girls. It's both.

So even though you might find child abuse, theft, murder or rape wrong, you could understand someone else having a different idea?
Is that what you are saying, right and wrong is different for different people?

They're hysterical. They know nothing about my mother or my family but think they can upset me over a funeral mass that I didn't even make the decision about?

Their posts are some of the best reasons for people to become atheists; no god would allow these sad little people to represent him.

Sorry, I forget that you can only understand yes and no answers. Both would be wrong. In court the defense would have to prove that the killer had no choice or that he had some mental instability.

Who is the 'they' in "they're hysterical"? I think only one poster responded to you about a funeral.
