It is now legal in California. The RCs are bitching, but I am think their argument is bunk. "Treats human bodies as a disposable commodity"? Really? This is just an an enhanced version of what actually happens to a body naturally, i.e. decay leads to it becoming compost. If we really wanted to treat humans with dignity, we'd be burying untreated bodies and letting nature take its course, not burning or embalming them. It's how we should be handling them, in other words. And why should the RCs get to dictate what someone like me chooses for our final sendoff? If I want my body to be composted, that should be my choice under my faith. Once again, the RC bishops seem to forget that their church is no longer the final authority on these things.
