christians are not only wrong about their ideas of reality, but morally, intellectually and culturally inferior
The state of mind of a bigot; obstinate and unreasoning attachment of one's own belief and opinions, with narrow-minded intolerance of beliefs opposed to them.
There is a God, and one day you will come before Him. I really would like that to be a happy wonderful day for you all instead of a day filled with bitter regret and the painful knowledge of what you could have had and what you could have been.
You are like blind men who not only will not ever see the beauty of a sunset, refuse to acknowlege there could even be one. Like deaf men who scoff at the idea that Beethoven's Ninth exists and is pleasurable to hear.
You really CAN"T see.
In many discourses the Buddha describes hell as an actual place while in others he seems to suggest that it is only a name for the experience of extreme suffering. He says "When the average ignorant person says that hell is under the sea, he is saying something that is false and without basis, the word hell is a name for painful feeling". The Buddhist conception of hell differs considerably from those of some other religions. There is no divine judge to condemn one to hell, rather one's own evil Kamma gives rise to rebirth in this realm. Re-birth in hell is determined by one's actions not primarily by one's beliefs. Thus no good person no matter what their religion will be re-born in hell. Hell is not eternal and when one's lifespan there is finished one will be re-born in one of the other realms.
I told the priest, Don't count on any second coming
God got his ass kicked the first time he came down here slumming!
He had the balls to come, the gall to die and then forgive us!
No, I don't wonder why, I wonder what he thought it would get us.
