A Pew Research Center survey on the religious beliefs of Christians in the United States, shows that about half believe Jesus will either definitely or probably return in the next 40 years.

Hilarious.  I saw a sidebar in a Christian mag the other day, "How to
definitively refute those who believe in evolution".

The "refutation" consisted entirely of "the Bible tells us so".

Good luck with that.  He has consistently failed to show up at any of the 'second comings' over the last two thousand years, so my money is on that run continuing.

I read someone noticing a church with crosses on its lawn - saying
that when Jesus returns, they are ready for Him.

Other returns were expected in the 1840s, the Jehovah's Witnesses have
expected several returns since their beginnings in the 1870s, and in
the 1940s one small group was expecting "eight years, maybe ten."

They all tend to go back and correct (sic!) their math while they
should be correcting their assumptions and interpretations of their
Bibles.

The Catholic Church holds that Jesus will come again to
judge everybody. I want to ask my parish priest what Jesus
can do on earth that he can't do in heaven or wherever he is,
but I haven't gotten up the nerve. I mean, doesn't he already
judge us? I thought that was why we went to confession.

There are things you have to do in person and things you can do on a
computer.  For example, you can do work and shopping on a computer.
But if you want a haircut you can't get one on a computer.

IMO God doesn't judge us while on Earth.  His judgment comes after
death.  On Earth we have free will.

I know the part of the prayer you are referring to. "He will come back
to judge the living and the dead."  But it's above my pay grade to
question God.  

Don't drink and drive.  Unless you have a good cup holder.

http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p1s2c2a7.htm

"When he comes at the end of time to judge the living and the dead, the glorious Christ will
reveal the secret disposition of hearts and will render to each man according to his works,
and according to his acceptance or refusal of grace."

Apparently you've learned your catechism, which is a reasonable but a
bit flowery paraphrase of what the Bible itself says.

Why don't you stick to pushing the King James version.
