This Preacher on Sunday morning was preaching about Gays and Lesbians. He also was against them being married. It was a good sermon.
Here is a true story:
Jim and Larry were together for 28 years. Jim dies. Larry cannot get Jim's body released from the hospital. He finally called Jim's ex wife in Cuba. Larry agrees to send her a round trip ticket for a week, if she will claim Jim's body. She arrived at the airport. Larry picks her up, They talk in the car, she is going to stay with her relatives. Now, the $20,000 insurance policy has her listed as beneficiary. They go to the insurance company and she receives the check.
She then goes to her relatives home and parties. Larry tries to call her and cannot get hold of her as she is sleeping in the mornings. He finally reaches her on her last day, Agrees to take her to the airport if she will release Jim's body. She does this the next morning before she has to go to the airport. She does not pay for the funeral or burial,
Larry has a yard sale to pay for some of the expenses. Then in lieu of flowers asks for donations to heilp pay for the cost of burying him.
What a terrible thing that Larry had to face. Not only the grief but the humiliation of asking friends for donations.
I met Larry, he did not appear gay. He looked like an everyday man that has a white collar job. He also had to pay the ex wife to release the body. He ran up his credit cards to pay everything.
This is why I am for Gays and Lesbians being able to marry.
