      Do they still let priests handle the bread with bare hands? You never know where those priest fingers have been.

    Funerals are a complete waste of money. It's absurd that people are profitting off of the mourning of deceased loved ones.

      The ritual of 'passing round the collection baskets' is the most important of all.

      So don't have one.

      They are not compulsory.

      You have to dispose of the body. A funeral ceremony is an essential part of the grieving process for most people when they lose a loved one.

      The religious rituals used (if any) are irrelevant.

      My wife and I are both donating our bodies to the 'body farm' at the University of Tennessee.
