Cemetery Ceremony Leads to Slippery Slope

A couple has received permission to marry in a Pacific, Missouri, cemetery in September. Though neither has ancestors buried there, they reportedly found the setting "charming" and "peaceful." If one Pacific alderman has his way, it will be the first and last marriage solemnized there.

"Once you let that horse out of the barn, people could ask to do anything out there," said Alderman William Hohman. "You've got various cults running around, and we don't want to get into that nonsense." [Link]

Gotta nip this thing in the bud, otherwise you'll end up with weirdos out there cutting the grass and resetting fallen headstones. The less attention these cemetery things get, the better!


Worse, it could lead to gravestone rubbing.
