Hard to believe there still exist such sick , ridiculous people .. I suppose they fear the dead will feel uncomfortable and might ask to be moved to a better neighborhood .. And this in the twenty first century and after thousands of years of civilization .. Grotesque !!!

God love the American (heterosexuals only dammit) Family Association, they actually wonder why anyone would call them a hate group.

I was mentored when I first came out by an older gay couple. Well, they weren't all that old, but I was only 18 when I met them, so they seemed old. They were both veterans of WWII, one Navy, one Army. They both died in their 80's, and had been together since high school, with a break for the war. They were together for over 60 years, minus that 5 year break. They are both buried, side by side, in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. I visit their graves twice a year. They were not activists, but they set an example that would be hard to beat. If there is an afterlife, I believe that their union will be eternal.

I suppose some of these people still can't get over the fact that black people (e. g., Thurgood Marhsall) are buried there.

Hopefully by then, you FAGG@TS will be buried at the county dump.
What's hilarious is WE are qualified to be buried at Arlington or any other national military cemetery, while YOU are not!

You really wouldn't know would you?
I know you never served in the military.
