This Close to Home cartoon is the epitome of the phrase, “Everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die.”
Saint Peter is greeting folks in line. He’s holding a stethoscope to a guy’s chest. The caption reads, “Hey! What are you trying to pull?! You’re not dead! Get back down there and keep living until we tell you it’s time to come up here!”
Wow, talk about a rude reception! The guy being told he has to go back does look pretty unhappy about the deal.
The song says you can’t hurry love. However, there are a number of ways to hurry up getting to heaven. The drawback is they leave a host of problems for the folks left behind on earth to deal with the mess.
