    in Religion

    CHURCH FOLK REVOLUTION RADIO -  Why does it seem only the tithe-paying, pastor-worshipping, 'goody two shoes' people are worthy of a church funeral?  Why does the pastor try to control everything, to include even the affairs of their dead church members?  Today we'll discuss recent stories in the news where pastors refused to officiate funerals at their churches for somewhat controversial and petty reasons.  We'll also hear personal stories from callers.  LET'S GO!!!

    A Funeral Nightmare

    in Radio

    The funeral of Annie Thompson should have been a time when her family could have celebrated her life and said their goodbyes to a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend. However, her daughter Lacresha Steele Thompson told of  this being a celebration of life that turned into an unforgettable nightmare. She states Angel Hill Funeral Directors of Arlington, TX failed to refrigerate or embalm her mother's remains causing her body to go into second stage decomposition. Due to the condition of the body, Annie Thompson had to be placed in three separate trash bags inside of an air tight  "closed casket." Lacresha states the smell of her mother's decomposing body is something she will never forget. The family and friends feel they never got closure, due to what happened and prays it never happens to anyone else.
     My guest were Lacresha Steele Thompson, Steve Nawojczyk and Mr. Jones ( not his real name).
