That is what i gather from the declaration of defection they are getting people to sign. I wouldnt sign that rag. I would dictate my own terms. If that plot is our property and my family is burried there the Church should have no say as to who is burried there.
I vaguely remember trouble with the upkeep of my Dad’ grave. The church had a lot to say about the maintenance of said plot. No boarders were allowed so as to enable easy upkeep of the graveyard. So I’m not sure if you really “own the plot” so too speak – the church facilities manager might have a lot to say with your land. (By the way I don’t want to be buried with my religious relations not even my husband I’d rather be compressed into a diamond or in an urn).

Yes I don't see the concern over being buried in a family plot. If you are allowed burial in a Catholic graveyard, you wont be allowed to write a cool epitaph.

I had officially denounced my faith. I told the priest I had so he was aware.

Was just thinking that maybe we should remove mkaobrihs name from that cover letter before it flies all over the net. What do you think mkaobrih? Just a thought, it's up to you.

I’m fine with it. Sure me name is up there in the profile anyway, and I know other people with my name. What problems do you envisage?

I thought Ms O'shea was nondescript enough, I can white it out of you want?

Ms why do I automatically presume everyone is a man. :oops: the cover letter isn't important it just makes it look more official then just the form letter.


what info did you send them, mkaobrih, did you get a confirmation?

you don't really need to know your god parents name like

I don't envisage any problems. Hell! Your campaign for Defection might go global. :)
