Something happened that offended at a memorial service I attended recently. I'm wondering if I'm just thin-skinned. Some background: It was a real tragedy in the family. A 33-year-old woman died of breast cancer less than a year after being diagnosed. Her father is my wife's step-brother, and ethnically Jewish. Both him and his wife (the deceased's mother) are completely secular. Soon after her diagnosis, the young woman became a Christian. That didn't bother me in the slightest. I can understand why a religion with such an emphasis on life after death would appeal to someone in her condition. So here's the issue: As is appropriate, her minister officiated over the memorial service. He kept emphasizing that the really important thing was that she died a Christian, and therefore went to heaven. That was his primary theme. I'm sure her parents felt comfort hearing she was in heaven, but the emphasis on guessing the "right" religion struck me as a slap in the face to every none Christian there--including the deceased's grandmother--a Holocaust surviver.
