Siblings of different faiths in row over funeral
In the Guardian newspaper:

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/..._b-gdnnews

The sad thing if the judge has to rule on it, neither sibling will be happy. None of it matters to the mother of course because once you're dead, you're dead.

Ahhhhh.........religion. What problems it causes!

A power saw and two caskets.

I'm glad I've discussed this with family. Cremate me. If you argue, then scoop up some of my ashes and do what you will. I've told them, as my father did, I won't argue because I'll be dead.

Kill the brother and sister and bury the 3 of them in a plastic bag.

Assholes.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Cremate her, bury a portion of the ashes in both places.

RE: Siblings of different faiths in row over funeral
Legally, it will probably come down to who has stronger next-of-kin rights under English law. But an ideal solution would be to:

(1) Let them have two funeral services.
(2) Find a compromise cemetery that meets both of their needs... this might be harder to do, since he wants to bury her near her husband and she doesn't like that cemetery.

Of the two, I'm more inclined to side with the daughter, who seems to be looking to respect the beliefs and attitudes of the deceased, rather than regarding those beliefs as the property of the dead husband.

Won't happen. The judge says:

When I'm dead, I want my body donated to a body farm so my corpse can be thrown in a ditch to rot. Yay science! Smile

Unfortunately, living relatives can usually override your wishes, so who knows what will actually happen.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

I considered specifying that, and then having my skeleton used in a college. The only requirement would be that every Halloween my skeleton would have to be dressed up in a costume.

You might want to specify that it be a non-religious costume. Because really, it's bad form to be dressed up as a Catholic priest when you've got an obvious boner.

(Also Mormon, Jehovah's Witness, and pretty much all other clergy.)
