Cosmo Will Go to Heaven Says Wfb

Good news for Jonah and Cosmo from WFB’s “Nearer, My God”: “He [a priest] had been approached by a devout elderly woman who asked whether dogs would be admitted into Heaven. He replied no, there was no scriptural authority. “In that case,” said the lady, “I can never be happy in Heaven. I can only be happy if Brownie is there.”

“I told her,” the priest said, “that if that were the case, why then Brownie would go to Heaven, because what is absolutely certain is that in Heaven you will be happy.”

Adds your boss WFB: “I have never found the fault in that syllogism.”
