  •  Where do these people reside? (7+ / 0-)

    In Darwin's waiting room?

    There is no hell on earth appropriate enough for those who would promote the killing of another person, in the name of a god.

      While use of the word "Purgatory" (in Latin purgatorium) as a noun appeared perhaps only between 1160 and 1180, giving rise to the idea of purgatory as a place

          This play presents the afterlife as a steam bath, in which recently deceased souls (who may not in every case realize that they are dead) continue to obsess about the same petty concerns that obsessed them in their lives. Ultimately, they are cast into another room offstage which is represented by a dark void by God, the steambath's Puerto Rican attendant and with the help of his assistant Gottlieb. In the play, the new arrival Tandy at first refuses to accept what's happened, and when he finally does, he pleads to be allowed to return to his life. Steambath was controversial when first produced for its obscene language (which was softened for its television version), its satirical take on religion, and some brief nudity.

          ...there is still hope for them, if I understand correctly.  In hell, they are beyond help, and there is no hope whatsoever (they are hopeless).
