My great grandfather was an evil man. He was also a non-practicing Catholic. He was proof that demons exsist in most peoples minds that knew him. He beat and raped both his wife and his children. Refused to allow his children to eat for days on end sometimes and forced them to work his farm so he could go drink. He was violent, and drunk... If anyone deserved hell it's him.
But when he died the priest at his funeral said he was going to heaven... Are you kidding? If they let him in I'm thankful I'm not Christian! I mean, why is it that no one ever wants to say - Yes, this man is going to hell, once they die? Or is it just better to say heaven and let god decide?
Ive been told many many times that I'm going to hell. Yet, I have never caused harm to anyone. I do my best to be accepting, tolerant and kind. So why is it that I'm damned but he's not? Is it because he CLAIMED Christianity and I am honest enough not to??

Funerals are for the living, it is meant to be comfort. If you think the person was evil why would you go to their funeral? The point of going is either to pay your respects to the grieving or to feel comforted by the service. If you are there for either purpose you don't want the MC to say the person was in hell.
