It's their right,

(and their rite), but:
More than 500 people turned out for the funeral of a gay man refused a service anywhere in San Diego's Roman Catholic diocese.

John McCusker's family was told that Bishop Robert H. Brom had issued a directive to parishes throughout the area to refuse to conduct the funeral.

"To avoid public scandal Mr. McCusker can't be granted a funeral in a Catholic church or chapel in the Diocese of San Diego," a statement from Brom's office said.
