Colorado church refuses to hold funeral for lesbian woman after dispute over ‘affectionate’ photos

This is hurting to us, because although we agree with the Word of God against homosexuality, we still care for all people.  We don't think God wants any church denying a gay or lesbian person's funeral.  Now, our source allegedly claims that this church refuses to hold funeral services for 33 year-old Vanessa Collier, because there were some affectionate pictures shown.  

 According to, Vanessa Collier, 33, died in December and her funeral service was scheduled at New Hope Ministries in Lakewood, Colo., on Jan. 10. But shortly before the service was set to begin, New Hope’s Pastor Ray Chavez discovered that the family’s memorial video contained photos of Collier kissing her wife. However, sincerely believe if this is what the family wanted, let it be and let God be the judge.   

The woman had to face judgement in front of the throne of God, no one has a heaven or hell to put her in.  Therefore, a church can oppose homosexuality and even preach against it, in our opinion, but they don't have a right to reject a funeral, because she was married to a woman and showing affection to her on the photos, that's going too far.  Too many people of all races are guilty of not loving all sorts of people, unconditional and this is what's hurting our country; to tell you the truth, this is why a lot of people don't have anything to do with the church.  That's not how you win people to Christ.  Thanks for reading and God bless.
