In that case, the sooner the better.

Well, if the rapture does happen, just remember the following:

There are a lot of rich Christians.

Actually, most are really impoverished. Rich Christians are very rare outside of primarily Caucasian countries, and they are still kind of rare in some former Warsaw Pact countries.

I believe MCalavera is suggesting that the Christians' homes be looted.

Of course, the things which have value now may have little to none post-Rapture.
I'm thinking that looting the right-wingers' gun shops may be a smarter option.

Who cares? It's all for free anyway.

A gun would be more useful than, say, a crystal chandelier.
And easier to carry.

Jesus Christ already did the "shooting" for you. No more need for guns.

I will still need food, as well as protection from wild animals and other "left behinders". Hence the gun.

When I meet you on the road, you will be handing over your clean water and canned goods to me. :lol:

christians shouldn't be allowed to drive cars. we dont want them careering off freeways when they pop out of existence. or maybe they dont care about the accidents they cause for the heathens left behind.

And what if your airline pilot, or your open-heart-surgeon get raptured just as they are serving you?

The implications are endless.

I heard theres actually a service where Christians can pay to be insured that if the rapture happens someone will come round to feed their pets. Staffed strictly with non-christians or christians with bad theology who wont go up. Sad that you're pets won't dissapear with you though. In all the "left behind" movies, the stars are people who werent "saved" but became christians after then had to survive in the post-rapture antichrist world. Looked very exciting and dangerous. But who wouldn't become a christian if the rapture happened and every christian disaperead, you'd have to be a pretty hardcore sceptic/rationalist to think they all faked it.

Honestly, if all the Christians were Raptured, and the WBC church for some reason was included in the Rapture (which would say a lot about God... I digress) I would go down to the the Phelps' home and take a huge dump in Fred Phelps' bed

I think only the god-hates-fags church would be raptured, because of their perfect theology. Which means noone would even know it had happened, it wouldn't be seen over the walls of their compound.
