This year’s Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) is going to a feature a ridiculous panel titled, “Heaven has a wall, why can’t the United States?”
The gathering has been subjected to bad publicity over the drama with Milo Yiannopoulos, now there is this ridiculousness.
Many people on Twitter (Conservatives included) are talking about the ridiculousness of this talk:

Eric Teetsel, former faith outreach director for Marco Rubio, said:
“This is garbage. For starters, Heaven’s ‘vetting’ is simply accepting the most expensive, wonderful gift ever offered. For free. Check it out.”
Franklin Graham, the evangelist and President of Samaritan’s Purse, said this about God using “extreme vetting” during a speech in Puerto Rico:
“What do I mean by that? I want the people of Puerto Rico to know that God loves them and that there is only one way to enter the gates of heaven — and that is through faith in Jesus Christ, and Him alone. Good works can’t get you into heaven.”
This type of lecture should not be included in any kind of government panel or conference. As an atheist, I say that this is absolutely ridiculous.
