Catholics don't believe in the "rapture," but, if it were real, I wish that Christ would return and rapture all the democrats, republicans, and politicals away, and just leave the a-politicals to run things. And if any of them started turning political they would be raptured at the first manifestation thereof. President Washington warned us long ago of the problems that political parties would cause. Come to think of it, a case could be made that the major troubles of our nation throughout its history are rooted in the party system. Only a deus ex machina could deliver us from them, methinks. Not a bad idea---it's just never been tried.
