  •  same deal at my Grandfather's funeral (3+ / 0-)

    My grandfather was very religious but had a somewhat tenuous relationship with “Church.” Even though he had a very strong sense of what was and wasn’t moral he saw that as how he lived his life, and didn’t push his morality on other people or judge them in the least.

    By the time my grandfather passed away he did not have strong ties to the church he attended when his wife was still alive, but they provided the preacher for the funeral, who wasn’t someone any of us knew. The gist of the sermon was that Grandpa had accepted Jesus and was going to Heaven and that any of us who had not found Jesus were going to suffer until we did.  

    I remember listening to this preacher and the whole time thinking, “What a dick.” Funny thought to have going through your head in such a circumstance. However, what sealed the deal is when we were all driving away from the funeral home and I saw the Bush/Cheney bumper sticker on the preacher’s car. He was a dick!
