Columbus Dispatch: Cemeteries in Bind as Cremations Increase

From here.

The only two-time Miss America, great-grandparents of Liza Minnelli, and Abraham Lincoln’s bodyguard all saw fit to be buried in Oak Grove Cemetery.

But more Americans are choosing to forgo a traditional burial and opt for cremation, leaving many historic cemeteries in the lurch.

Read it all, especially the comments that follow the story.

If you are interested in seeing whether people are embracing the Christian hope of new creation (or even know about it), this is an eye opener, and not for the good if you care about folks and the Christian faith. Very little indication from the commenters that they have a clue about the hope of resurrection and new creation. Yuck.
