No Catfish, Either?

One of my deepest theological questions has always revolved around food: Will there be BBQ in heaven? The deeper issue is whether or not Jewish levitical law regarding food will be applicable.

This morning, I was reading through Leviticus 11 and realized again that catfish are questionable, as well. The fish must have fins and scales to be permissible. I learned at a very young age the difference between cleaning a catfish and cleaning a bass or bream-- you gotta skin it. So catfish are out, too.

Man, forget rich people having trouble getting to heaven...what about Southerners?

Hilarious! This Floridian loves his pulled pork BBQ. There better be some in heaven 'cause all I can find in Texas is beef brisket.

My grandfather, who was a Southerner but no theologian of any import, opined that not only would heaven be a place where we find the tree of life with leaves that heal the nations, but also catfish- and cigarette-trees.

I'm with you, Brian! Oh man, I hope your grandfather is right, Sammy. Big Rock Candy Mountain-- could it really be in heaven? Awesome!
