The eye of a needle

Jerry Falwell probably now knows whether his "devotion to Christ," as he liked to call his promulgation of fear and loathing in service of a corpulent, multi-million dollar existence, has any basis at all. And I'm not above imagining Falwell's appearance at the Pearly Gates, with a serious case of karmic retribution about to kick in. St. Pete is there with the big book, a dour expression greeting a rather stunned Falwell, who is thinking, "... uh oh ...."

St. Peter (voice of Lawrence Olivier): Jerry Falwell.

Falwell: Yes, sir.

St. Peter: You have gotten our message rather wrong, I'm afraid. Badly wrong. And, it seems, quite intentionally.

Falwell: What do you mean, sir?

St. Peter: Do you really think you can get away with that here?

Falwell: But, but ...

St. Peter: Jerry, please, we don't have much patience for blubbering. Good bye. I expect you know what that means.

Oh, I do like your imagination. It so goes along with mine. Now, if only I believed in the afterlife so that I could take comfort in the thought of him being down below, below, below.

Thanks, mg. It is fun imagining special hells for these snake oil hustlers.

At least he'll have lots of company in his "Special Hell". Of course to the untrained eye the special hell will look just like a panel show on Fox News.
