Here is a priest describing his version of “hell”:
I don’t think hell exists… Religion is always in the control business. And that is something people don’t really understand. It is in the guilt-producing control business.
What’s amazing is that, because “god” is silent (because he is imaginary), any religious person can make up anything they like on god’s behalf and spout off about it all day. Strangely, religious people are unable to see how ridiculous this sort of ambiguity is.
If “god” were a real, existing being, we would all know exactly what he thinks, what we are supposed to do and not do, etc. It would all be unambiguously communicated. A perfect, omnipotent, loving being would have no other choice.
