If the second coming is anything like the first go round, Jesus will be taken away by welfare. Certainly God would lose His contact rights, and I can't see Him claiming that he can't afford the alimony.
Does this mean that the divorce court could end up awarding Mary II half of the universe?
I suggest to anyone who is going to be a single mother that they claim the father is God, and maybe they can get control of half the universe anyway.
