Yeah, because if it was a Christian, we automatically know they were a good person.

You know, there are plenty other ways to dispose the body,

Jeez, that is one awkward username.
What an asshole.

I'd rather die than get church service for my funeral.
7/17/2008 9:28:53 AM
This is why my funneral plans are in my will. If they do some stupid shit like put my body in the ground then they don't get anything.
Also, glad to hear you admit your preachers are liers.
7/17/2008 9:47:37 AM
I don't give a toss what happens to my body after death. I mean, fuck, I'm dead I'm not gonna know anything about it and I certainly won;t be needing it.

Sounds like a poe. Fundies don't usually call themselves that.
7/17/2008 11:08:11 AM
Even if it's a Poe, it's a damn piss-poor Poe.
7/17/2008 11:22:12 AM
I knew someone who opted for the latter. One of his daughters kicked up a fuss about it, but his wishes were honoured.
7/17/2008 11:48:05 AM
At least the the part about the answering fundie being ignorant is correct. I see no reason why any atheist should have a church service. In fact, unless he was a member of the church, most churches wouldn't agree to it, either. There are such things as secular memorials, you know.
7/17/2008 1:53:42 PM
That's a crappy name.
7/17/2008 2:05:33 PM
I know many atheists who are far better christians than this lunatic.
They may not believe as I do but thier outlook and actions would make Jesus proud - and you thoroughly ashamed.
7/17/2008 2:13:24 PM
Judging by the username, I must ask, poe?
7/17/2008 2:26:27 PM
Fuck off, douchebag.
7/17/2008 3:50:03 PM
Allegory for Jesus
Okay...ummm...there is usually only a church service if the atheist didn't specifically request not to have one, and the family decided to have one.
I would assume that most atheists would steer clear of the church, however, and would not bother dragging in a priest to babble out random Bible verses that would do nothing but piss off the deceased were he to hear them.

I'm planing to have a sky burial
. In my back garden.
(I did want to be placed aboard a burning skiff in full pirate regalia and sent off down the Thames, but apparently they river authorities don't like you to launch fireships anymore.)

Jesse Helms. He dead. Suddenly, he good fella.
7/17/2008 5:32:46 PM
Don't care, I'll be dead. Take my ashes and flush them, wont make a difference to me.
7/17/2008 6:46:26 PM
Not going to say anything about the user name.....
As far as funerals go, if there is a Christian funeral, it's usually done because the family demanded a Christian funeral. Somehow that's supposed to make up for the last 40 years of atheism or something.
I've seen the arguments in numerous families. The rational family members usually just give in.

My father-in-law had a service, though it was in the funeral home and not in a church. Afterward, he wasn't 'dumped in the ground' as you so ineloquently put it. He was cremated. His ashes are in our kitchen hutch. He was afraid of cemeteries and the dead, so did not want to be buried.
We have a choice too, asshat.
Also: David B., that's actually kind of cool. I had never heard of that before. :)
7/17/2008 6:54:45 PM
I know of no one who would dishonor me by giving me a church funeral.
7/17/2008 11:11:12 PM
Funerals are for the living. I've given my body up for medical experiments...
7/18/2008 2:43:49 AM
Which demonstrates that that pastor is more human and better person that you, zealous idiot.
12/26/2009 1:50:39 PM
Honestly, why give a shit? You're dead, it's not like you need the damn thing anymore.
