As is typical for self-centered, selfish proaborts, Petey was only thinking of Petey. Even at his MOTHER'S funeral, Petey gets what Petey selfishly wants. I have no doubt that Petey was nothing but a disappointment to his late mother. She's praying harder than ever for his filthy soul.

Petey: When life begins is a philosophical question, not a legal one.

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".

What's the meaning of a funeral mass?
Did Ted Kennedy get a funeral mass? If he did, doesn't that demean the meaning of the funeral mass?

What Every Catholic needs to know about funerals
The funeral Mass is a final opportunity to commend the deceased to God’s mercy, and that’s 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 person’s 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 God’s mercy, and to reflect on how the person’s 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.

“In order to pray for the repose of the person’s soul, and to pray for the family, the best way to do so is the Mass, because it’s in the Mass that we read from the Gospels, that we encounter the Lord Jesus and his mercy,” said Father Roger Landry, a priest of the Diocese of Fall River, Mass.

“The 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. It’s one of the greatest means by which the Christian community comes together to support a grieving family,” Father Landry told Our Sunday Visitor.

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.

Hey knutter, if my wife dies before I do, she's not going to get a funeral "mass." Does that make me a pathetic man?

Perhaps you'd want to consider that if the opposite happens, I'm not going to get a funeral "mass" either. Will that make my wife a pathetic woman?

Funeral services matter nothing to the person who died. After all, he/she is dead. And if Peter's family chose not to have a mass, it was their choice and their decision. However, seeing as you follow so well on the footsteps of almost every Catholic I know and you disobey your Jeebus' commandments, according to Luke 6:27 - 37, I suppose I can also call you, and every other militant Catholic, pathetic.

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.

A good catholic in basic outlook. Actually, she hadn't attended church for years and didn't see it as important. Nor did I make the decision not to have a mass for her. I did, however, call in a priest when it became clear she wasn't going to be around much longer, and he gave the last rites. THAT was honoring her wishes nd her faith.

I think a catholic church would be more afraid of me than the reverse. I have nothing to fear; I'm well over the age of molstation.

Because with pathetic pieces of dung like you claiming to be representitive of the church, its SO appealing a prospect.@@
