Theology for Dinos

Tuesday one of our parish priests came to talk to Evan's class. I'm not sure what the topic of conversation was but my son asked Father the following question, "Do plant eaters go to heaven and meat eaters go to hell?"

Evan didn't specify dinosaurs, but I know how my son's mind works (most of the time).

Without missing a beat Father's responded, "I don't know. I'll have to think about it and get back to you."

It's slightly disturbing that my son is concerned for the souls of species long extinct yet has no qualms about torturing a 5-year-old boy.

One word---compartmentalization.

In case you thought it was just motherly pride it isn't. Your kids are exceptionally funny, smart, and entertaining.
