Colorado church refuses a lesbian's funeral

Friends and supporters held a “Dignity in Death” rally Tuesday for a wife and mother of two who was denied a proper memorial service by a church in Lakewood, Colorado, because she was a lesbian. 

With hundreds of people sitting in pews awaiting a memorial service for Vanessa Collier, who died Dec. 29, church officials at New Hope Ministries, where the memorial was scheduled to take place this past Saturday, refused to perform the service because she was a lesbian mom and wife.

A big shame!
