In anticipation of what probably won't happen on Saturday, here is a collection of Rapture pics randomly culled from Google Image Search. Apparently, all of the raptured will be very white and right if these pictures are accurate.
Padre Mickey found this one. Young, white, and sexy get the Rapture. Yeah baby! So God is a horny racist old letch?
A less interesting version of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, Anywhere USA, gets the Rapture. I suppose places like the Bronx and Williamsburg, Brooklyn don't count as Anywhere or USA.
I don't know why, but I look at this painting, and Elton John's "Rocket Man" comes to mind.
Who knew that the Kingdom of Heaven would be made so safe for white people? A Methodist congregation from an affluent part of Dallas, circa 1962, goes up to safe blandly conventional glory. Why does this picture make me think that Hi C will be served at the Heavenly Banquet?
And I must conclude with this classic, early 1970s Dallas gets The Rapture.
In fact, all of these lily white Christians look like they're extras from the old Ozzie and Harriet Show, or like they're refugees from a 1974 Sears Catalog.
Looking forward to May 22nd.
