Unsurprisingly, the answer to this question can be found in a random thread that up to that point had nothing to do with God, choirs, or nuggets of morality. It did, however, have to do with turtles, and it came from the philosopher @bigfatmoosepssy.
In 2021, a Twitter user had a simple question: is anyone IRL named Sheldon? In response, bigfatmoosepssy replied that their class turtle in 6th grade was named Sheldon. When another user implied that didn't count because, after all, "that's a turtle," @bigfatmoosepssy hit them with "When God sings with His creations, will a turtle not be part of the choir?
While not confirmed, this seems like it may be a riff on the folk song "All God's Critters Have a Place in the Choir" by Bill Staines, which lists how many animals on Earth could contribute to the big orchestra.
