The article says: "Giachini has said he merely wanted a Catholic funeral for his client, whom he said had confessed his sins and been absolved. But the pope's vicar for Rome, Cardinal Agostino Vallini refused him a church funeral, presumably on the grounds that it could create a public disturbance or allow the service to be used by other Holocaust-deniers to promote a political agenda." If he did, in fact, confess his sins, and the Vatican did, in fact, deny him a Catholic funeral to avoid "public disturbance," the Vatican, from the perspective of Catholic teaching, was very very wrong in their decision. I'm not in any mood to stick up for SSPX these days but Catholics are entitled to a Catholic funeral, however grievous their confessed sins may be.
