Calif. Company Sells ‘Tickets To Heaven’

For $19.95, Buyers Get Ticket, Certificate Of Authenticity, Testimonial Card
AP, Dec. 3, 2002

VACAVILLE, Calif. — There are many beliefs concerning what will gain someone a “heavenly reward.”

But a California company is selling tickets.

For $15, plus a $4.95 shipping and handling fee, Ticket to Heaven Incorporated will send you a ticket with your name on it, along with a “certificate of authenticity” and a wallet-sized testimonial card.

No faith commitment is required. As far as the company is concerned, purchasers are pledging to be true to their own faith — whatever it may be.

The company’s Web site includes a disclaimer that absolves the company of any responsibility to actually get you to heaven. And it “makes no warranties or representations” as to whether there really is a heaven, what it’s like or how long it lasts.
