  • Is John McCain Endangering His Soul By Preventing Trump From Attending His Funeral?

    Any Christian with terminal illness who believes in the afterlife, would embrace a spirit of forgiveness towards others, in the hope of receiving forgiveness from God. Our ability to receive forgiveness from God depends on our ability to forgive our fellow human beings. There are many Bible verses dealing with unforgiveness:

    John McCain, who has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for more than a year, doesn’t want President Trump to attend his funeral and prefers Vice President Pence to be there, according to a New York Times report. In addition, former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have been asked to deliver eulogies at McCain's funeral, sources close to both former presidents and McCain told CNN.

    The family of Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) does not plan to invite President Donald Trump to the senator’s funeral when the time comes, according to a New York Times report. McCain and Trump have long had a contentious relationship, including Trump slamming McCain and insisting he was not a war hero during his 2016 campaign. “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said back then, referring to the former prisoner of war. “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” The relationship did not get better after Trump was elected, particularly after Trump mocked McCain...

    In Japan, Aibo robots get their own funeral by Miwa Suzuki AFP-JIJI ISUMI, CHIBA PREF. – The robot dogs lined up in their dozens last Thursday in Chiba Prefecture were no tech fair display. They were the dearly departed being honored with their own traditional “funeral.” In some respects, it was a funeral like any other in Japan, with incense smoke wafting as a priest chanted a sutra, praying for the peaceful transition of the souls of the departed. But the departed were 114 of Sony’s old generations of Aibo robot dogs, each wearing a tag to show where they...

    As Billy Graham is laid to rest in North Carolina today, the 2,000 invited funeral attendees will listen to—or sing together—six songs. Graham, who planned his own funeral [see CT’s live report], was the one who chose them. In this, he seems to have taken the path of his longtime music director Cliff Barrows. “I want a lot of music,” Barrows instructed Billy Graham Evangelistic Association choir director Tom Bledsoe before he died in 2016. “And I want the people to sing.” Graham’s six picks: “Until Then” (Stuart Hamblen, 1958), performed by musical artist Linda McCrary-Fisher“All Hail the Power of...
  • Turkey’s Erdogan wasn’t allowed to speak at Muhammad Ali’s funeral. Now he’s not going.

    Erdogan was initially on the roster of speakers on the funeral — a list that includes a number of famous names, such as former president Bill Clinton and comedian Billy Crystal. However, on Monday, Ali family spokesman Bob Gunnell had said that two unnamed speakers had been added to the program, meaning that foreign guests Erdogan and King Abdullah II of Jordan would no longer be able to make an address. Gunnell told reporters that the two world leaders had been “gracious and understood.” But there were a number of suggestions that perhaps Erdogan had been removed from the list...
  • Billy Graham's Funeral (Is this a vanity?)

    02/24/2018 5:34:47 PM PST · by NorthWoody · 37 replies
    Been around here a long time, but this is my first post. I'm not sure if it's a vanity or not, but hopefully it's well-received. I'm wondering about people's opinion on the question of whether Billy Graham would be receiving the same (well-deserved) honors and attention after his passing if Obama the Commie was still the president. This question occurred to me on the way home tonight, and I'd like to hear what y'all think.

    “Invited to the Feast” (Isaiah 25:6-9) There’s a big feast coming, and Bob is invited! In fact, his seat is already guaranteed. There’s a big feast coming, and you are invited too. That’s what I want to tell you about today, that we have been “Invited to the Feast.” What is this feast I’m referring to? It’s the one spoken of by the prophet Isaiah. You heard this prophecy in the reading from Isaiah 25. It begins: “On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of...

    Funeral Foibles – Problems in the Celebration of Catholic Funerals Msgr. Charles Pope • November 14, 2016 • In this month of All Souls, it is good to reflect on funerals. It concerns me that very few people today seem to understand the real purpose of a funeral. The way in which we conduct ourselves at funerals, the manner of preaching at funerals, and other visible attitudes expressed at funerals not only teach poorly, but are often a countersign of biblical and Church teaching on death, judgment, Heaven, and Hell.There are many problems, both sociological, and liturgical, that combine...

    A Funeral Sermon Designed to Teach on the Last Things and Inspire Prayer Msgr. Charles Pope • November 16, 2016 • In Monday’s post, I discussed some of the more common problems with funerals; it provides background for the homily I summarize in today’s post. In it, I tried to teach on what I think are the central themes that should be emphasized in Christian funerals. I do not necessarily preach every word you see here at every funeral, but I do address these basic themes.The homily I typically give at funerals is broken into three main parts: Praise...

    “The Last Enemy to Be Destroyed Is Death” (1 Corinthians 15:20-26, 51-57) Over 25 years as a pastor, I have had a number of World War II veterans as members of the congregations I have served. Homer Rouggly was one of them. In fact, Homer Rouggly might well be the last one that I will have the honor of laying to rest. That “Greatest Generation” is quickly passing away, and they were quite a crew. By the way, for a number of years I had two World War II veterans sitting near each other in the pews at St. Matthew’s:...

    Cops once again turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio at a police funeral. Scores of officers who assembled for assassinated police officer Miosotis Familia on Tuesday showed Hizzoner their backs during the mayor’s eulogy — a move reminiscent of the funeral for slain officer Wenjian Liu in 2015. --SNIP-- The protest comes after de Blasio skipped town for Germany Thursday — the day after Familia was assassinated by cop-hating gunman Alexander Bonds.
