Makes sense. If there is a heaven, it's not going to be exclusive to those who happened to be born and raised in a Christian country.
I think most people have a hard time believing that God would be such a jerk.
Like I've said before, I want no part of any place where people like Jerry Falwell and George W. Bush are going to be.
By the same logic, hell is going to be one massive party
I believe in dog.
I'm counting on it.
For a second I thought that was Sarah Jessica Parker.
I believe you are correct. Those eyes could never deceive.
Here's Sarah now.
Lo Bob. You got sugar??
I LOL'ed so hard, because I scrolled up and there is a DEFFINATE resemblance!
No- this is Sarah Jessica Parker:
I've actually met Dee snider, hes a very intelligent man.
Back on topic, im sure all the animals in this thread, Dee included, will make it to heaven......
assuming its somehow real.
The mole is in the wrong place.
Sarah's is on her chin, and is always perfectly covered.
That's Sarah Jessica Parker, not Dee Snider...oh wait...
We shall make a 'Gaytopia' - a heaven for gay ppl.
It's still kinda weird that they have an opinion about something that no human has ever seen, and which is impossible to know anything about. So wether it's evangelicals claiming VIP status or agnostics making room for atheists, it's all pretty much guesswork. I hate to say it, but this time evangelicals have a stronger basis for their assumptions (if we lay the part of the man-made Bible aside).
Their guesses are more valid somehow?
That Americans aren't as religiously conservative as many believe?
There's a message for the European characterization of us as a people lost in there somewhere, I suspect....
I'm not holding my breath.
Well at least they're basing themselves on a book, even though they skip the part about verifying the book's claims. But the rest are simply imagining what they hope heaven will be. They're both equally weird notions to me.
I'd agree with you on this; the evangelicals are actually maintaining a consistent philosophy, while the remainder of America's religious population is in a way cheating their beliefs.
They don't like the idea of other people going to Hell simply because they don't share the same beliefs. It isn't meritocratic (which is a core part of American beliefs); it's much easier to say that someone goes to hell for something they did, not believed.
At the same time, they can't ignore the fact that religious texts are usually pretty clear on this subject: only followers go to Heaven. The winner between these clashes is good old fashioned decency. Americans are putting aside their religious differences and saying that we all share a common end as long as we follow x, y, and z rules. The trouble is is that that isn't textually accurate.
That's a shame since "because god told us to" is the last excuse America had for screwing up two elections in a row.
If this is a joke then I don't get it.
How can you cheat what you personally believe?
