Heaven can wait ... until it is accessible

No rapture?

I was obviously shocked when I realized today had no "end of the world" vibe because normally you can count on doomsday prophets and numerology.

But then it hit me: Of course, there was no rapture; God is worried about lawsuits.

You have plenty of references to stairways to Heaven, ladders, even escalators. But you never see elevators to Heaven. Heaven is inaccessible to wheelchairs.

Sure, you can argue that wheelchairs won't be needed in Heaven, but that is a big assumption to make. I am sure that more than one lawyer would be willing to challenge God on this, and I figure that someone up there realized that, maybe Giles or one of the other patron saints of handicapped people. (Nice, non-offensive language there by the way, SQPN.)

I want to see ramped access before we even talk about this again.

Would it be the word "cripples" that you object to? You're so sensitive.
