Last year I wrote a post on how much Kermit means to me and why.

    I learned in confirmation class that Jim Henson is in hell because he didn’t believe in jesus, and that all the wonderful things he did in life simply did not matter because of that one flaw. Immediately after that I learned that some serial killer who had been executed (I forget who, not that it really matters) was in heaven because he started believing in jesus after his incarceration, and all the terrible things he did in life simply did not matter because of that one virtue.
