Which circle of Hell do You belong in?
http://www.4degreez.com ^ | 13th Century | Dante Allighieri

Posted on 04/07/2006 8:55:55 AM PDT by TradicalRC

"Through me the way into the suffering city,
Through me the way to the eternal pain,
Through me the way that runs among the lost.
Justice urged on my high artificer;
My maker was divine authority,
The highest wisdom, and the primal love.
Before me nothing but eternal things were made,
And I endure eternally.
Abandon every hope, ye who enter here."

Forced choice ... they've got to send you to either level three (gluttony) or level two (lust). It's similar to a trade study or refining a set of requirements in engineering. Which of these two is more important?

LOL! Now that is a good comparison. I just don't usually associate sex with food.

*SNORT* That totally invites a crude remark that I'm just not gonna make ...

Too bad this isn't post #69.

I got stuck on that one too because they didn't say for how long - one meal? Or is it forever?

It doesn't take monitoring; it's everywhere, unavoidable. People can't have disagreements with their "countrymen" without accusing them of treason or worse.

I'm not the target of the remarks, it's just something I see all the time. It's a symptom of the enmity we're creating among ourselves in this country, which is too bad. I doubt it even rates lower than Purgatory on the list, though. :)

Take what you wish, and do what you wish with it. :) The closest I can come to answering your question is that I think that the most personal decisions should be made by the people whom they affect, not by the government. It sounds as though you prefer the government to make personal decisions.

This proves my other observation, that Freepers can turn ANY topic into an abortion thread.

You too. It's a gorgeous sunny afternoon, and when I finish here I'll get out in it. At least I made it to Purgatory! :)

Hmmmmm. Here's how I ended up.

"You have escaped damnation and made it to Purgatory, a place where the dew of repentance washes off the stain of sin and girds the spirit with humility. Through contrition, confession, and satisfaction by works of righteousness, you must make your way up the mountain. As the sins are cleansed from your soul, you will be illuminated by the Sun of Divine Grace, and you will join other souls, smiling and happy, upon the summit of this mountain. Before long you will know the joys of Paradise as you ascend to the ethereal realm of Heaven."

Your fate has been decided....
You are one of the lucky ones! Because of your virtue and beliefs, you have escaped eternal punishment. You are sent to Purgatory!

some of the questions were a bit odd.

The one about "which would you give up, Sex or food?" was kind of weird.

Yeah, I had to flip a coin on that one.

I never took the test.

I spent 5 minutes staring at that attractive young lady in the "American Singles" add on the sidebar. Then I forgot what I was doing there.

She's rather captivating, don't you think?

I rather suspect that the writers of the test will be going to hell for placing such an occasion of sin on a questionnaire about eternal salvation.
