is a funeral home considered a church.
the reason i ask i live across the street from one
and i was going to take my daughter and use their
front lawn to teach her how to cast.
don't really want to do it unarmed.
i guess i could fend off an attacker with my fishn' pole
but i might damage my pole.
if ya'll knew where i live you would understand not
wanting to be unarmed.

I don't think it counts as a church.

Don't churches have to be not for profit? A funeral home is probably for profit.

My rule of thumb. If they don't pass an offering plate it ain't a church. However a funeral could be a public gathering. Coretta King's funeral had half the state show up. That was probably a public gathering. When we had Grandma's service the immediate family showed up. The general public wasn't invited.

What about the fact that many funeral homes have a chapel annex, or separate chapel on the property, to conduct funeral services in?

Yeah, but if you had a gun within a mile of the King Funeral you would have gotten heat because of the politicans and figures showing up there.

An actual funeral could be considered a "church function" and thus off-limits.
You have case law on that point?
Some funerals have no religious content at all. Some funerals are not open to the public at all.

if i see they are having a service for someone i wouldn't
do it out of respect for the family, but if no service why not?
i was just trying to clear up carrying on church property or not.
i think i would be ok. sinse it is not tech. a church and with no
service it's not a church function.
i'll let ya'll know what happens

Yeah, I might have to have a word with you if I showed up at the funeral home to stick aunt Clara in the ground & you & your little one were tossing beetlespins across the front lawn while all the suits & black dresses walked by.

That thought actually makes me laugh a little.

:lol:
