I don't know what to say...

Ok... read this story.

Then read this:
Can. 1184
1. Unless they gave some signs of repentance before death, the following must be deprived of ecclesiastical funerals:
1- notorious apostates, heretics, and schismatics;

2- those who chose the cremation of their bodies for reasons contrary to Christian faith;

3- other manifest sinners who cannot be granted ecclesiastical funerals without public scandal of the faithful.
2. If any doubt occurs, the local ordinary is to be consulted, and his judgment must be followed.

Can. 1185 Any funeral Mass must also be denied a person who is excluded from ecclesiastical funerals.
-Code of Canon Law
It seems to me that the stipulation in #1184 part 3 is met here, cuz I'M SCANDALIZED!

Oh, well... thank God I'm not a Bishop, because I guess this is just another one of those "pastoral considerations" that I simply do not understand.
