Family Says Tampa Church Canceled Funeral Because Son Was Gay!
This is a doggone shame, a Tampa church canceled a man’s funeral one day beforehand when parishioners complained that the man was gay, according to his widower. Just last week, 42-year-old Julion Evans was given six months to live after battling a rare disease for four years. Two days later, he died. This is so SAD! I can't believe a church would do anything like this.The pastor in my opinion was wrong, wrong, wrong.
He ought to be ashamed and members of this church embarrassed at the action he has taken. To not let the family know until the day before is unconscionable. Members of the grieving family are often at their lowest point when they have to bury the loved one. They could have AT LEAST offered to arrange for the funeral to be held elsewhere. SAD!
