#TheGatesOfHellSay via Hashtag, You’re It!: @McMannofthePeop The Top Picks


One of my favorite interpretations of Hell is “The Parable Of The Long Spoons”. In that story people in Hell have plenty to eat but have these enormous spoons that they can’t handle, so they never get any food to their mouths and are starving. While in Heaven it’s the same thing, plenty of food, long spoons, but they feed others from those spoons and so everyone gets to eat and are happy. I like this version because it’s simple but torturous and it’s really just people making it Hell for others. It reminds me of Jean-Paul Sartre’s great work “No Exit” where the real meaning of the play is: Hell Is Other People. An idea more recently made into TV comedy with NBC’s “The Good Place”. Every religion has their own idea of Hell. But it all just boils down to a place of eternal torment for sinners. For the Devil and all this minions that’s a big job. Think about that. Since the beginning of human life on this planet, bad people have been sent to Hell where he has to persecute them for all time. Seems like a daunting task. With more and more people being born every year, statistically there has to be more and more of them flood down to Hell. It’s a logistical nightmare I’m sure. Those new souls just arriving in Hell, what do they see? The old Dante style flaming gates of hell with little red demons poking them with pitchforks? Or did the Devil modernize and it’s a huge line with a large billboard that says “Now Serving #694,920,561,837,699”? Or are the gates of Hell personalized for each new damned? That’s what I was asking with this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It”. I wanted to know what you guys thought would be there on the gates of Hell with the hashtag #TheGatesOfHellSay.
