"There's nothing wrong with helping people dispose the remains of their loved ones," Kerger said.

I keep saying that, but the DA, he has other ideas.

Abuse of a corpse? Really?

Its not a corpse anymore Its ashes. Thats why we burn corpses, so they wont be corpses anymore.

This story didn't mention in but one thing he's been accused of is cremating a dozen folks before inturning them at a Muslim cemetery, major problem being Islam doesn't allow cremation so there's no way they were done with consent.

I'm an agnostic who leans atheist but even I find that despicable.

In other words, he was challenging the funeral industry somehow.

The remains were seized at Greater Faith Missionary Baptist Church on Tuesday by investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, attorney general spokesperson Steve Irwin said Thursday.

Crikey!

I'm kind of curious. Did Pastor Shawn have connections to the deceaseds (and their families)?

This sounds like a Caitlin Doughtery vid.

You must have trouble with your vision, so here:

The investigation began that same month after someone called 911 and reported seeing a corpse being moved from a van into a building.

State agents subsequently removed two bodies from the building.

So, that article is kind of a mess. That was the funeral home director, not the guy who owned the church, right?

What did the guy that owned the church do? It seems like he stored a bunch of ashes, but I can't figure out what he actually did illegally.

Meh, cremation has a very high CO2 cost so it's not exactly saving the world.

It's better than the way we do burials.

There are a lot of religious groups that don't mind cremation, but don't do scattering..
The remains need to stay "together" for future uplifting and so on..
It's really possible that the families didn't have money to have their relative interred, or even have
the ashes interred....Having their relative at least kept on "holy ground" within the church might have
been some comfort for them. I really don't see the point of going after someone over a situation like this.
Really, just find a solution to the situation and try to help get the remains in a permanent place.
Any law talking people that act like this is some horrible crime against the state needs to get off
their damn high horse and making a fool of themselves by throwing volumes of charges at someone
over something like this..That just reeks of "I'm going to milk this case for all the media attention I can get
so I can use it when I run for higher office." ..Now the other rotting dead body stuff..Ya, you kinda failed there..That you should be explaining to a judge and the licensing boards..

I think the DA is just pissed that they were "living, not just remains" prior to your arrival. DAs can be funny that way.
