Isn't there something weird about bodies laying "in repose" and people coming to "honor" them? There's an "alter like" quality to this that is more and more weird to me.
Maybe, I'm feeling this way because when this happens, the people paying their respects seem to be doing so not so much for the person in a personal way, but, for that person's beliefs. With the current chief justice funeral, the beliefs being lauded seem to be mainly things that are either non-Biblical or not equitable, i.e. the views favor one "group" over another in a way that is not impartial.
Out in the open, no one seems to be admiring this judge for her impartiality and "blind justice." But, isn't that what makes an honorable and great judge?
