Catholic Church Will Allow Gay Couple To Get Buried Next To Each Other — Just Not With Their Same Sex Marriage Tombstone…

no title

Even if you're a bigot… this doesn't make much sense.

Michael DeLeon and Greg Bourke have spent the last 30 years together, have been married since 2004, and have even raised two children as a couple, but they may not be able to spend eternity together.

The most recent story of Boy Scout bigotry comes from Kentucky where Greg Bourke, an Assistant Scoutmaster, got the boot from the organization after he revealed he was gay and had raised two children with his partner of thirty years.
