This is not so far removed from what some Christians really believe about the end days and the like. At least they didn't do the Egyptian thing and build him a pyramid and make a mummy out of him.

Schrödinger's cat in a box dead or alive? BOTH. So they should have put his corpse in a box!

Watch Australian limited series GLITCH.
There several diseased humans came back from dead in perfect health right from the grave.
I killed it in less than a week whole 3 seasons.

The wife must have been born congenitally stupid...no amount of religious indoctrination could have had that effect on her brain otherwise!

Well, did it work?

I thought the same thing about my dick! 😕

How long’s he been dead?

I first thought that maybe some checks kept rolling in - guess not as eviction got them caught.

If she really knew no better then she should not be allowed to operate a toilet without supervision let alone have custody of her children.

Incredible, but let's explore another possibility. By doing this and not admitting he was dead could they draw or continue to draw certain money? Then, later to get out of the fraud they might claim a religious belief.

Japan did this for decades until they hit negative interest rates and lost all credibility as the nation of the longest living citizens.

Damn, that’s a metric fuckton of nutty. I can’t recall which denomination, which refuse autopsy and want burial instead of cremation because they believe the body must be whole to rise out of the grave at Judgment Day. There’s a scary thought: millions of Xtian zombies in various stages of decomposition. 😱🙄

My sibling believes her deceased husband will be
resurrected in the next life to join her!

What about remarriages? I always wondered if polygamy was ok in the afterlife, lol.

@CarolinaGirl60 yes, And the women will take it and like it and shut up.

😁

Maybe it was far northern Canada in the dead of winter with the windows open.

Well, damn--now, his chances of being resurrected are nil. They shoulda left him alone!

Yeah. If only they'd waited one more lousy week

@cannon1975 I cannot believe the insensitivity of the authorities.

I know of Irish family party drink and get smash with their dead love one for a day. But 6 months of prayers in a dead man's bed is really sick.

I wonder if that van's for sale now? 🤔 Sweet ride.

Yeah, this is mental illness. Every Pastor I've ever known would find this appalling.

Glad to know there are crazies in other countries too!

I suppose after 6 months they could no longer stand the smell of rotting flesh.

Yes, I would think they would have figured the death thing out as soon as the smell got going.

@dalefvictor But they’re CRAZY. Probably thought it was part of the ‘process’. 🙄

Maybe they thought he had to get ripe before their god would show up????@CarolinaGirl60
