This Non Sequitur cartoon ponders the question: “What if there was an entrance requirement to get into heaven, besides being a ‘good person’?”
The strip shows St. Peter at his podium, with a velvet rope as a gate. More often in Non Sequitur cartoons recently, he has a computer on the podium, rather than a big book. The sign next to him says, “Entrance Requirement: Actually practiced the morals taught by your religion.”
In the line waiting to get in, a man says to a woman, “I think it means we don’t have to worry about it being too crowded in there.” Theoretically, heaven is infinite, so how could it get crowded?
Notice the dog and cat behind St. Peter that each have halos and wings? They’re waiting to bestow the heavenly accessories upon the next entrant. Of course, pets get into heaven without having to meet any entrance requirements.
