Sanctimony Sanctuary

God and I were discussing the Rapture again. For those of you that may not be up-to-date on your theological memes, the Rapture is linked to the apocalypse. The four horsemen come riding in and the world as we know it comes to an end. All the good Christians go straight to Heaven, without passing go, and everyone else gets a few years of Hell on Earth to get scared straight or reconcile themselves to an eternity down below.

The thing that occurred to me is that really it’s kind of a win-win situation. The holier-than-thou types win because they get to go straight to Heaven without having to spend the rest of a lifetime being good. And everyone else wins because they finally get to live in a world devoid of sanctimonious jerks.

God gave me an amused look and then asked me what made me think the sanctimonious jerks were going to be part of the group going straight to Heaven.

Some days I just can’t win.
