Hell Is Where The Heart Is

I love blogging. There is serious commentary out in the blogsphere, which is gratifying and intellectually stimulating. And then there are the nimrods. They are there only to be read and provide amusement. They don't know that, but that's part of the fun.

Anyway, I was checking out the I Am The Force blog (author's name is Ragnar Mentaire) because he had made a silly response to one of my comments on another blog. He has a piece titled "Hell Is The Answer."

This is good...the guy says that we should advertise hell more forcefully and that way more people will be made to turn to Christianity...especially those following the false religions of Islam and Buddhism. These will be brought down by advertising.

According to Mentaire the Midget, hell and its eternal suffering should be on everyone's mind, every day, whether in America or China. He recommends using billboards and satellite television, newspapers and magazines to spread the message of hell. It's high time, he pontificates, for people to come around.

Seems to me we already have way too much Christian advertising. One can view it every day on telelvision...the 700 Club, TBN, Catholic TV, creationists with their own shows, etc. It's on the web, it's mailed into our homes, it's on every other street corner, it's on news shows where these prophets(?) make incoherent announcements and the drivel is lapped up by's everywhere. But that's not good enough for Lord Mentaire, no, we need MORE FEAR.

Got news for you buster, Fred Phelps would love you to join his church in Kansas.

Your vision of Christianity has the blood of millions on its hands and the new inquisitors are doing their damned best to add a few more innocent souls to the tally sheet. So, go away, little Ragnar, I don't fear you and there are many who don't buy this message of fear that you and others proscribe.

I am not a believer...never will be (this aside is to cut off any sanctimony from you...not even on my deathbed!). However, I have the greatest respect for those followers of Jesus who believe in his loving message. And, I have great respect for anyone who, through their own faith, live good and peaceful lives with best wishes for all.

So, Ragnar last word. I'm not sure why you need more advertisement, you're already living in hell. Why don't you climb out and join the rest of us.
