Modified Rapture

Well, it didn't happen. Jesus didn't Hoover up all the Christian fundies leaving a more rational, kinder Earth behind. Still, the rapture-that-wasn't provided a number of good jokes, of which this one (taken from the Facebook page of Jonathan Schwartz) is my favourite.

And now I will have to dig out my copy of When Prophecy Fails and re-read it.

Well, I'm still here. I didn't think they'd take a Unitarian theist, but I did wonder about my husband and younger daughter, both practising Anglicans. Turns out Jesus didn't want them either. Sigh. I trust you saw this?

Indeed I did. One has to admire their entrepreneurial spirit (aka "take the fundies for every penny the fools haven't given away yet").

Anyway, Anglicans are practically Catholics, so obviously unrapturable. (I'm nominally Anglican, but in practice much closer to Unitarian: but then my student days practising ritual magic probably didn't do much for my chances.......)
