No longer in limbo

Sometimes I feel as if I spend an inordinate amount of time in limbo--neither here nor there, neither heaven nor hell, neither rare nor well done.

But now the Pope has abolished limbo. I'm hoping this cuts down on, say, phone-message-menu limbo and traffic-delay limbo.

Still, I was kind of hoping he'd abolish Limbaugh. That would be sweet.

I'm glad to hear it. Making all those poor unbaptized babies dance under a stick with their lack of balance and limb coordination was just cruel...

Excellent point.

phew. Now I don't feel so bad about not having Lauren baptised. But wait, I'm a presby, not catholic, so does the popes abolishment cover protestants who live in orthodox jewish neighborhoods too?

ugh... the guilt continues....

So it took 30 people several years to write a 41-page document that still refuses to say that unbaptised babies go to heaven for sure.

And I thought us Unitarian Universalists were slow.

Perhaps the Holy See needs glasses.

I never really expected the Pope to be doing the limbo.

Where do you go if you're an athiest who lived a so-so life?
