Who is going to heaven among 1990s celebrities?

The poll that I've been posting about this week also asked respondents about the heaven-prospects for famous people (circa 1997). Specifically, it asks "Assuming there is a heaven, please tell me, in your opinion, how likely each of the following individuals is to get into heaven"

Here are the percentage of respondents who answered "very likely" for the following celebs:

OJ Simpson-7%
Howard Stern-10%
Newt Gingrich-11%
Rush Limbaugh-14%
Bill Clinton-18%
Hilary Clinton-19%
Al Gore-21%
Princess Diana-22%
Magic Johnson-24%
Pat Robertson-25%
Colin Powell-32%
Oprah Winfrey-36%
Mother Theresa-74%

I'm not sure what the trends are here, other than most celebs are best known for something other than doing good.

I believe that you have unwittingly touched upon one of the most significant evils within the Christian culture today - the idea that we can judge whether a person we have never met will or will not go to heaven.

I wonder how many people gave the proper answer of "I have no idea. That's for God to decide and not me"?

Only 74% for Mother Theresa? Geeze, what's a girl have to do to get into Heaven these days?
