My sibling’s mother in law died recently, and there was a condolence posted with the BORG website. I googled the name of the poster, and found the same condolence on 100s of funeral home websites!!! See it here.
Many of these sites don’t have mods or a way to report a website promotion. I mean who would stoop that low? Yep, they would. Nothing wrong with posting a (scriptural) condolence to someone you don’t know, but to promote the website? That’s low.
I feel ambivalent. I’m angry that they are targeting those who are potentially emotionally distraught. On the other hand, they look like desperate fools for doing it.
I’m not the activist type, but I’m half tempted to call HQ and ask them about this, tell them how deplorable this is, and to send a letter to the congregants discouraging the practice.
