I just had to post something about this since the spooky day is coming up.  Again, I flagrantly steal from other bloggers.  Read the entire thing here.

There is no Hell

Since it’s Hallowe’en and time for some spookiness, let’s put an end to this rumor right now:  Hell does not exist.

Okay, so a statement like this does need further explication.  After all, we’re playing games with a concept that’s included in almost every single major world religion.  Now, most people think of “Hell and Brimstone” Christian fundamentalists when they think of Hell:  Jack Chick/Fred Phelps-style preachers who seem to derive a cruel satisfaction from pulling the levers that plummet the wrong-headed into the lake of fire.  After having read about half of the Quran, I’m finding that at least a full third of the verses in that otherwise fascinating holy book are devoted to describing how horrific is the post-mortal doom Allah has set aside for “disbelievers.” Heck, even those peace-loving Buddhists have a hell, and it’s a nasty place.
