"Being told as a child that a Protestant friend who died would ‘roast in Hell’ was more distressing."

This, in addition to being a lie, is a *stupid* lie. No matter what this unfortunate woman was allegedly told, it is not a teaching of the Catholic Church that people go to hell for being Protestants.

But of course, one can refute an argument but one cannot refute an anecdote. So by presenting it as the testimony of an unnamed victim, he ensures that you can't say it nay without seeming mean and insensitive to this (probably nonexistent) individual.

Gay State, let's pray for him. It's in the Book.

Interesting that this is going to be aired on al Jazeera. I'm wondering if the interviewer probed the Dawker about Islam and its various anathemas against "infidels" and how they should be ..er..."treated".
