Rewrite Thomas Monson Obituary

The BBC recently wrote an obituary of Thomas S Monson, formerly President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Instead of highlighting the positive aspects of his life, or a neutral statement about the facts of his life, they decided to attack and disparage his character and used his obituary as a political statement against him and the Church as a whole and tweeted a click-bait headline to attack even further.
Fidel Castro and others have had more neutral obituaries which shows this as either a direct attack or a complete misunderstanding of religions or religious people. Would they write similar remarks about the Pope?
We recognize that all people, including the BBC and its authors, have the right to free speech and free press. However, an obituary should not be used as a political platform.
We are asking that the BBC formally apologize for this bias in reporting and present an honest, neutral, and balanced obituary.
