Another Funeral, uh I mean, Wedding Barn

Here we go again (Presentation at the beginning of meeting above) another Wedding Barn. This one is near the new Veterans Cemetery. I guess quite a few neighbors showed up to say they didn’t want it there (Joint jurisdiction with the county and city even though those opposing the barn do NOT live in city limits).

One of the reasons is noise from bands, and the fact it is a heavily traveled gravel road already and people are wondering who will pave it and pay the cost. One of the biggest complaints the neighbors had was that they were never notified or asked if they wanted to live next to a cemetery (they were not notified of the re-zone from ag land) and they were pretty perturbed that the cemetery is going in so close to their residences. I guess when the city wants to rezone they don’t have to get permission from the county, but it seems it is the other way around when the county wants to rezone.

While I wasn’t opposed to the cemetery I still think the Feds or the State should have paid the good taxpayers of Sioux Falls for the land.

For those who believe in traditional marriage, why aren’t they opposed to barn weddings?

If a gay couple gets married at an Unitarian Church, while a straight couple gets married in a barn, who are the true traditionalists?

Many rural churches have their own cemetery, so a wedding barn with a cemetery should not be seen as odd, but merely traditional, don’t you think? Which means that because churches can have cemeteries, then wedding barnes are traditional too, so long as they have a cemetery nearby, right? Is it not the cemetery which legitimizes a traditional church wedding, and hence the phrase, “Until death do us part?”

Weddings and funerals are synonymous. One is a one time burial that can produce inception. The other is a burial that is eternal. Either is sad and involves legal infraction. Let’s live and die without lawyers.
