  •  If anyone is going to Hell... (0+ / 0-)

    ...it's because God is a sadistic asshole void of the supposed unconditional love and mercy his advocates claim for him.

    Either that, or Hell is merely an invention of some humans seeking to control other humans' immediate behavior with fearful threats of torture.

    •  Now that's what I'd call a dickish (0+ / 0-)

      comment in a diary from a believing Christian.

      I can't launch an HR in my own diary, but that one deserves a few.

      •  You don't like it: too bad. (0+ / 0-)

        I've been threatened will Hell too damn much in my life to care if the truth hurts your feelings. The whole concept of Hell is evil, and God sending people to Hell is an act of evil. You've never faced killing yourself because of how much good Christian folk threatened you with Hell, all in the name of God's love, of course. I have. You have never been taught to hate yourself because an endless parade of Christians told you that you were going to Hell. I have. The whole concept of Hell is completely antithetical to the concept of an all-loving God. Either Hell doesn't exist or God is evil for having created it and for torturing people there. Torture is not an act of love.

        What is dickish is how you cannot, or how you simply choose to not recognize the pain that Christianity has caused people. You might not care about other people's pain, that's fine. But don't you dare try to tell me that my experiences haven't happened.

        It's your Hell, you believe in it, then you burn in it. Stop threatening the rest of us with eternal torture just because we refuse to obey you.
