3. Well, my Calvinist grandpappy used to refer to "Ten-in-a-bed Baptists"

By which he meant, those who were so narrow they could fit ten in a bed.

Grandpappy also firmily believed, like Calvin, that certain people were chosen to be saved, and those that weren't were doomed to eternal damnation, no matter how much they might wish to join the fold. Needless to say, grandpa was mighty glad everyone in his family was among the chosen. I'm thinking grandpappy was pretty conflicted.

As a now-atheist, I like this cartoon. Thanks for posting.
