Hell and redemption...

Ok, now this is an exercise in imagination, not an invitation to tell me about religious doctrine... Now then. Let's suppose there is somebody you really hate. Or you hate what they did. Could be a real person, a historical figure, whatever. What kind of hell could you design for them that would be appropriate for what they did? Examples might be: You hate abortion, and you sentence an doctor who performed them to an eternity of listening to the voices of the babies that were aborted. You are in favor of gay marriage, and you condemn the person who authored an anti gay marriage bill to be reincarnated as a gay person. OK... Go. Now, what about redemption? Would you find a way to allow them to redeem themselves? Yes or no, why, and how would you have them do it?

Anyone who feels/felt compelled to mock/hurt/disrespect me in anyway, I sentence them to walk in my shoes on a daily basis. The life I have lived and everything I have worked so hard to earn in my life, believe me they will think otherwise as my life has not been easy beginning at birth and even though I have had some good years they were never just handed to me. Therefore, walk in my shoes and they may just want to be my friend and or at least think otherwise before, being so quick to be judgmental. Redemption, hmm after getting a taste what it has been to me, I think they would be begging for forgiveness.

For the proud Roger Clemens I would have him Have to take batting practice against a head hunter picture twice a day for 15 years. let him see what it is like to Almost be hit with an 100 mile hour fastball. And then have him wait but Never make it to the hall. Plus have Every one of his fans turn their backs on him .

No I really don't care if they had a steroid machine in each locker room. I hate Fat A$$ Son Of a B!tch, my name for him, because he beamed Piazza Twice! and he tried to hit him with a bat. If I could I would kill him with my bare hands But , It looks like he may go to prison. When he does it will be like my birthday All over again.

I go for redemption - of course anyone can be redeemed. What would I have them do? How about just respecting and loving other human being? Sorry - I am not very good at things like this

I am not a hater. I have one or two personal enemies like everybody, but I cannot say they upset me. The only thing that gets on my nerves when it does not make me laugh, is stupidity, and I would sentence stupid people to be intelligent enough to understand plainly and appreciate their previous stupidity. A previous stupid bureaucrat would have to fill 20 forms to get his morning coffee during at least two centuries, and a previous stupid classical music hater to listen during a hour what he was listening before he understood the joy of classical. I know it is a very tough sentence and that many are not stupid enough to deserve it.

"and a previous stupid classical music hater to listen during a hour what he was listening before he understood the joy of classical" Then I hope that I am never smart enough to enjoy listening to classical music. Then again, if I can listen to what I previously enjoyed for an hour that wouldn't be so bad. Oh wait, what would I be listening to the rest of the time?

I would've liked Osama bin Laden in a cage..and kids standing all around eating ice creams and laughing at him and his followers. That wouldnt be in hell..it would be right here...would've loved that. Everytime a criminal is caught..children being the ones that get free something and get to laugh at them. Daily one street. He would die of shame.

I am a vengeful person. If I have reason to hate someone it is probably over an injustice done to my kids. No one is perfect but, hey, don't bother my kids! I would sentence such a person to listen to real b*tches 24/7 griping, whining and carrying on until eternity is long past. As far as redemption? It would take alot of them begging for me to ever let them redeem themselves. Such is hell!! Alot of heat and very little else.

Hi dawnald I dont find anyone I hate as I believe my hatred, and even anger for anyone is quite momentary and short lived. I forget such things more quickly and move on. But yes, during that time, I would love to give them a hell lot of advices on how they should behave or even why they should not have done that... with all my insane reasoning

On my Good Day - It would be a real pleasure for both and also I will have a few who would listen to me...

For me, it would just be for the people that molest or abuse children. That they live through the same experience! And be in constant fear of not knowing when the next bad experience would come. Lastly, that they go on 'living' forever having their 'lives' all screwed up.

I think many of them did live through it. Therefore very ironic that they turn into abusers. but yeah, I 'm with you...

I would have to go with animal and child abusers on this one. I have to say that their punishment would be to be abused in the same manners as they abused their victems everyday. The only redemption would be ten times the abuse per victem.

I think everyone should have a chance to redeem themselves...but before the fact....I think right before they die they are given a couple of minutes to change their attitude or way of thinking....while wearing a lie detector! That way you would know if they are sincere!

I suppose eternal fire and pain would be a good punishment for abortionsts, killers of innocents, people who hate God.etc.. As for redemption, it would have to be before they die. I do not believe in regeneration, of people coming back to live again as slugs (even I could imagine that someone would want to be.) If they redeem themselves before dying, then having them feel sympathy for what they would have condemned or guilt for what they would done, would be what would come from them thinking of their pat behaviour.

Hm, seems to me that would give them reason to hate God...

Child molestors and abusers spend eternity having done to them what they did to others. No redemption!

Each bad deed would have to be analysed before deciding if the guilty person deserves to be redeemed after an initial punishment. Because one of my mottos is “Do unto others…” I would like to see the nasty deed inflicted back onto the person for as long as it takes unless that person is truly evil; in that case the punishment can be for eternity.

The one i hate is paying for what he did right now, Dawny. Wasn't my doing, but i won't help to make it better. Redemption, out of the question. I'm not willing.

I guess redemption is up to somebody else anyway.

This is an easy one to answer. Return to them exactly what they give that way they will understand what their action means. Never for hate or revenge, this is education at it's best.
