God's protection

I don’t know both sides of the story behind this cartoon so I’ll reserve judgment, but in the meantime:

A farmer hears that there is a flood alert and people in the area should prepare in case they need to evacuate. He doesn’t worry about any evacuation sine he is a devout man and believes that God will protect him.

The water rises and he ignores all calls to evacuate and then one day the farm is completely surrounded by water. A boat arrives and the rescue workers call out to him but he replies that he has nothing to fear and he has no need to leave since God will protect him.

A few days later the waters have risen so much that the farmer is sitting on the roof of his house to stay dry. A helicopter arrives and as it hovers the rescue workers call out to him. Once again he refuses to leave and insists that there is nothing to worry about since God will protect him. The water continues to rise and the farmer drowns.

He arrives at the Pearly Gates where he meets St. Peter, and he isn’t very happy. “What happened?” he asks St. Peter. “I was a devout man and a good man. Why didn’t God protect me?”

St. Peter looks puzzled. “I don’t know what you mean,” he replies. “We sent you warnings, a boat and a helicopter. What more did you need?”

Anyway… Humouroceros
