never did understand why people cry at Christian funerals. Why aren't

they all singing with joy ?

I agree Michael, if the Christian afterlife is true then, among other things, the word "tragedy" should never be used when describing sudden deaths...it's not like they're never going to see their family members again.

This one tipped me off early, as well. Why all the crying, do you believe grandma is going to hell? I thought this would be a good day. Surely those aren't selfish tears of loss.
