Separating the sheep from the goats

sheepOr is it the goats from the sheep? Whatever. Sheep, goats. Goats, sheep. It makes no difference. Who could do it?

Mother Theresa in the sheep corner. Adolf Hitler with the goats. Possibly. As for everyone else, who knows?

Playing God isn’t easy.

Fortunately, with the steady decline in religious belief (according to the UK’s 2011 census, even the number of “Jedi Knights” has declined since 2001) there’s no longer a requirement to judge people in this way.

So it’s a pity we continue to do so quite so enthusiastically.
