Aw, Hell

This is an evergreen topic for me ---- every October, churches across the country organize Hell Houses" or similarly titled events, and every October I hate them. These events are supposed to demonstrate God's final judgment on all the bad folk (expect scenes of Hitler, chainsaw murders, abortions, 2 guys marrying) as will happen at the end of time. This may very well be mostly true, but I don't get a good feeling about that whole method of evangelizing -- it falls into every negative stereotype the World has about us. I'd prefer a little more love, and a lot less brimstone.

I just want my Harvest Bash back. Please.
