Souls are up in arms today at the proposed plans to shut-down and decommission Limbo - the halfway house between Heaven and Hell and home to millions of unbaptised infant souls. Pickets have spread like wildfire and additional Seraphim have arrived at The Pearly Gates to help Saint Peter keep order and stop the protestors that have gathered there.
One soul, who wished to remain nameless, has claimed "Pope Benedict XVI is just doing this to boost his popularity ratings abroad. He knows that the Church is loosing ground in Africa and Asia to Islam because the Islamic Faith says that stillborns - like me - go straight to paradise! Grieving parents prefer to believe that their dead little ones are in a nice place but what they don't realise is that Limbo is actually pretty good! It might not have that much of a nightlife and the beach front could be better but atleast you're hanging out with everyone who's a similiar age to you!"
