Think I’m going to hell? You’re already there.

I have a papal problem I was hoping you could help me with:

I’m Buddhist, and I hear I’m going to hell ’cause I don’t believe in God.

Seems like a kinda big issue.

More dumplings, dear Heathen?

A few years back I was invited to a lovely dinner with friends of family.

They wined and dined me, served me graciously…and then, halfway through dinner, it came up somehow in conversation, they casually admitted that, yes, I was going to hell because I was a heathen.

I couldn’t get over it—these nice people believed I was going to hell, to be tortured for all time because I was in some way evil, and yet treated me like a prince.

Ca-lassic religion+dogma-before-present-moment-fail.

With thanks to Colin for the inspiration.
