Does anyone else have a love/hate relationship with the His.tory Channel?  I'm watching something called "The of Hel.l", which talks about how religions throughout history viewed Hell and where exactly it was.  Well, it keeps saying ridiculous things about Christianity, such as (I'm paraphrasing a bit here), "The further Christianity progressed, the more sadistic the descriptions became.  People who call them Christian pornography are not far off the mark".  WHAT?!  Who says that?  Do you think Christians get PLEASURE out of hearing how people go to Hell?  They also said, "A journey into Hell few people know about is the journey of Jesus".  Then they go on to talk about how Jesus went to Hell after His death and took a few souls away from the devil.  Again...WHAT?!  First of all, Jesus didn't descend into actual Hell.  He descended to the Limbo of the Just, where the good were waiting for the gates of Heaven to be opened by Jesus.  Secondly, "a journey FEW people know about"?  How about the WHOLE CATHOLIC CHURCH?  Dumb.  Dumb.  Dumb.  They're also suggesting that Dante's is how all Christians see Hell.  Um, no.  The Inf.erno is a POEM, just like The D.a Vi.nci Code is just a STORY.  UGH!  They just said that Purgatory is "the upper chamber of Hell"!  I can't stand how many things they get wrong about Christianity (and Catholicism, more particularly).  Sigh.
