In regards to lawsuit filed by LAMBDA, the largest gay rights activist group in the nation, we did not refuse a gay man at his time of need. In the lawsuit filed by LAMBDA, it claims the family had a prior contract; they had no contract of any kind with us. LAMBDA chose to try the case in the media instead of a court of law. When we have our day in court, you will know the truth.
We have received the most horrible phone calls with vile language, also telling us they are going to kill us and blow up the funeral home. One caller told our administrative assistant when she answered the phone that they were going to burn her up and kill her family. She has a 15 month old baby. She cried. I have heard so much hatred, it's unbelievable.
We believe God is the judge, not us. We believe that God says we are to love everyone. We treat everyone the same. We have had several gay familes in the past, and treated them kindly just like everyone else. they were very nice to us as well.
We are a full service funeral home and we strive to meet the needs of the families we service.
