Simon Bennett replied to JD Baggaley's discussion 'Has anyone ever told you you're going to hell?'

Simon Bennett replied to JD Baggaley's discussion 'Has anyone ever told you you're going to hell?'
"I love the way the priest phrases it.  He just guesses that you'll suffer eternal damnation? Also the casual delivery of the damnation is so hilarious.  I've been told before that I was going to hell. The reason I was told this…"

Simon Bennett commented on Shabaka Tecumseh's blog post 'Are Atheist Elitist?'

Simon Bennett replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is voluntary celibacy a danger to the human psychie ?'
