I find that statement you quote very offensive. I have had dear friends die in recent years, and they required no religion to console them, and their secular funerals were sad but wonderful celebrations of life. (The most recent one, last year, was for someone who was a fan of Monty Python. We walked out of the funeral to the sound of "Always look on the bright side of life" from Life of Brian. I knew what it was like to laugh and cry at the same time).
