JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: FUNDAMENTALISTS ON HEAVEN   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY OLIVER KAMM IN THE TIMES
I love the fundamentalist idea of heaven.Imaging six trillion years of listening to the likes of Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Swaggert, and Oral Roberts blubbering and throwing beads of sweat and saliva, pleading for higher collections?

Six trillion years of Tammy Faye Bakker warbling and trembling with her make-up running down her cheeks and pee running down her legs?

Six trillion years of George Bush droning in words that make a large number of eight-year olds seem remarkably articulate?

But six trillion years would mean, in the words of a rather beautiful old hymn, that “we’d only just begun.”

By the way, Sarah Palin fans, did you see her impressive first interview on television or read it?

It was a disaster. The woman displayed only ignorance and belligerence.

It might be explained by a fact few may be aware of.

Sarah took six years, at five different colleges in several states, to get her bachelor’s degree.

And newsmen have found the records at these institutions closed to examination.

The world needs this after eight years of a certified moron?
