  • What if there really was a Rapture?

    Mick LaSalle is posting a novel in progress, The Event that takes the End Times beliefs of the Religious Right at face value, unfortunately for them God's idea of a righteous Christian is not quite the same as theirs, and all the wrong people get raptured.

    It's a Left Behind that skewers the Left Behind crowd.

      Mark, are you sure this is a 'work of fiction' or just a 'reporting of actual events'?!

      It's chillingly accurate, now, isn't it?!

        I've always maintained that the self-rightious and self-annointed hypocrites are in for a very nasty surprise when they schlept themselves on up to the pearly gates.

        You've seen the bumper sticker haven't you, "In Case Of Rapture--This Car Will Be Abandoned" and the one we scoffers love best, "In Case Of Rapture---Can I Have Your Car?"

          Scoff all you want. It will happen (the Rapture). God will have the last laugh on us all.

                That is an interesting twist. All the "wrong people" get raptured, in effect creating heaven on earth.

                        But the wrong people couldn't be raptured.. unless you're saying God makes mistakes

                              What if it's really not a Rapture, but a rupture instead?
