No matter how wealthy or how powerful, each man and woman must die and face the God(s) judgement. It’s also long been held that those of great wealth and/or power most likely face damnation.
This could make for some odd and very interesting postmortem phenomena…
George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.
Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.
Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.
Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.
When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA so cheaply. The devil smiles and replies, “Since Obama took over, the country has gone to hell, so it’s a local call.
Well, if nothing else, Obama running America into the ground and turning it incrementally into Hell on Earth, might ease the suffering of the Damned somewhat and that would be mercy. 😉

Of course that mercy would be, like all of Obama’s supposedly merciful and kind acts, paid for by the suffering of others that were not meant to be damned for the choices.
