The "death of death".

Eddie Mair | 16:30 UK time, Tuesday, 20 October 2009

A Church of England vicar, the Rev Ed Tomlinson has caused quite a stir with his comments on funerals. As BBC News says:

"A Kent priest has expressed his dismay at the number of funerals he leads with little or no Christian content. Writing on his blog Father Ed Tomlinson, of St Barnabas' Church, Tunbridge Wells, said such services left him feeling "like a lemon". Father Tomlinson questioned why people chose a church service when they do not want Christian input or songs.""

His original blog posting is here, and his updated posting is here.
