Heaven on Earth

People give fundamentalist Christians a hard time.

But if you think about it, compared to ancient times when Jesus lived in the Roman Empire, today's world is pretty fuckin' heavenly.

I mean, if you were a poor peasant living in squalor under oppressive Roman domination and were suddenly transported to today's "future," you would pretty much have to concur that even the United States are pretty badass by comparison.

Even if you were penniless, useless, and could not speak the language, which would be likely, society would more or less take care of you and you might be inclined to think modern people were angels, by comparison to the murderous sots of old.

Of course, there are a lot of devils today too. Which are you?
