      Looks as though god is busy doing a lot of picking and choosing as to who’s back he’s got. Unfortunately he has not been doing a very good job because he hasn’t had very many backs covered in BIM recently!

      Really was not expecting such an explanation, how sad it’s believed there were others who were not worthy. Especially when there were good people who have recently died senselessly who’s backs should have also been protected. What proof do you have to say those who passed did not want god and therefore he did not have their backs? Please don’t make me laugh!

      I hear those vans were made to transport items inside large buildings. Not to drive on public roads.

      Oh? I rarely see any good outcomes with these vans in particular. I’m surprised they’re actually still around.
