    You have never heard of Sheol?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Interesting. So when the Scriptures speak of Sheol and Ge Hinom they were clearly referring to the garden of eden eh?

    Ge-Hinom (Gehenna), was the nickname for a garbage dump outside the city. It could be an allusion to hell's unpleasant conditions...but, it may not.

    Much of what we visualize of hell does come from Dante's inferno. That's not to say hell doesn't exist, but that many extra-biblical sources refined the concept to what we know today.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    Partially true. Read the Book of Revelation. Dante was an amateur.

    A phobia is an irrational fear. Homophobia is, therefore, an irrational fear of homosexuals. If one disagrees with the mainstreaming of some gay lifestyle issues (promiscuity, bathhouse culture, redefinition of marriage), that does not make you irrational or fearful, regardless of trendy opinion. OTOH, those who automatically dismiss rational objections to specific policies as homophobia are doing so to advance an agenda. That would tend to make them homophyles.

    As I have said before - hell is NOT what most people believe it to be.
