Bratty toddlers miss rapture
Narrow is the baby gate, and few that enter it.
Colorado Springs, CO: All dogs go to heaven. Probably not pet snakes. Or cats. But what about children?
To ensure salvation, Catholic theology teaches the importance of infant baptism while the tiny creatures can still fit in a basin rather than the typical Protestant baptistery/world’s worst hot tub.
We polled several local churches on this not at all sensitive topic, but most members had children in their early 40’s or were currently on Fishers of Men trying to attract a mate with which to make children.

Toddlers. Herds of sticky-fingered toddlers wandering around a dystopian landscape eating much more chocolate than their parents would allow.
