Starfleet is not a christian organization and Starfleet is so far from whatever kneejerk christianity the current US military uses as tradition that this makes no sense at all.
And I really don't think any military that traditionally uses Amazing Grace for burials would be using it when burying a muslim. People are not that tacky and insensitive.
Good point. We don't see Amanda there, but it's possible a recording was sent to Spock's parents so they'd have a keepsake by which to remember their son.
Really, I can't believe people take issue with the choice of the eulogy music. Maybe Scotty chose it. Who cares if it's Christian or Muslim or secular or Vulcan ?
I agree. Of all the things people could make an issue of in TWOK, this isn't high on the list.
Yellow. NO, BL..AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
We're so used to being human and christian culture centric it's easy to miss it, but it is an embarrassing inclusion.
And Belz I see you haven't bothered answering my comment about playing christian hymns at the funerals of muslims in the military.
Someone just did not think this through very well. Apparently it was Doohan's suggestion, though he didn't actually play it according to another source.
I did answer: I said "who cares ?".
