Yes I did. He doesn't kill anything in heaven. He is hunting when he dies.

Not in the episode I saw. He just wants his dog to be allowed in heaven. Besides that what sort of heaven would that be for the coon? I believe what they say is that in heaven the lion will lie down with the lamb. Maybe you and ML can have a shootout. Heaven for me would be seeing the animals shoot back. LOL

I hear there is a hell for bad liberals, who wind up there getting their asses kicked by conservative demons for all eternity.

Of course this was just a story created by men based upon the earlier Epic of Gilgamesh that provided the foundation for the Hebrew religious texts. If we trace religions back far enough they originate with early cave paintings and stories of superstition that existed long before the written languages of Mesopotamia in about 3,300 BCE (or about 2700 years before the Hebrew Torah was written in 600 BCE).

The study of the evolution of religion from early superstition and myth is a facinating field of inquiry. They all really have the same origins in myth and superstition and then layer is built upon layer until we reach the present day religious beliefs.

For example Christianity is based upon the Hebrew Torah (that was based upon the Epic of Gilgamesh) with a little Greek/Roman mythology tossed into the mix so that it could be marketed to the Romans along with the Jews.
Oddly, I'm lagely convinced that you are a pre-Helenistic myth.

I also find it curious that anyone would create for self-serving purposes, a religion that calls for everyone to think of themselves as no better than anyone else, and to be glad servants to individuals, not a state, not a priestly caste, not a village, not a race, not a family, bu to individuals, each and every individual individually.
