Apparently, Michael and Greg, both 58, applied to be buried at the Catholic Archdiocese of Louisville in order to take the burden off their kids, but their gravestone depicting two male hands with wedding rings above the Supreme Court was deemed inappropriate for the Church back in March.
According to Catholic Charities executive director Javier Fajardo, the diocese believed the gay symbol went against the Bible, saying:
"Inscriptions on grave markers are permitted so long as they do not conflict with any teaching of the Church. Your proposed markings are not in keeping with this requirement."
So homosexuality is okay… just as long as it stays underground?
However, it wasn't until this week that Greg really started to question the hypocrisy behind the decision at a news conference, saying :
"We feel like we've been dealt with unfairly. [It's] not any more outrageous than other things — It's very modest, not over-sized, and not in a well-trafficked part of the cemetery.
[However,] The Archdiocese has every legal right to do what they're doing. We have no protection whatsoever in a situation like this."
If you're asking yourself why the Church would accept a gay couple into their grounds, but not a picture promoting same-sex couples, it may be important to take a look at Michael and Greg's legal background.
In the since-deleted posts, the reality star exclaimed that the many shootings in which officers kill unarmed black men have "nothing to do with race," and even included the "all lives matter" hashtag.
