Christianity and other myths

entry picture

With legs neatly crossed 
and a glass in her hand,
cigarette held to her mouth
her head tilted back listening: 
she exhaled- paused, 
then in reply said: 
''You forget about the fall back 
position of Christianity; 
'Limbo', 
according to the Catholic church 
all 'souls' that had no faith 
but were without sin- ended up there.'' 
she pressed her cigarette firmly out 
in the saucer provided-
and continued; 
''I envisage billions of babies 
crawling around for eternity, 
crying for their mums!''

Tommy Carroll 2008

Limbo, in Roman Catholic theology, the border place between heaven and hell where dwell those souls who, though not condemned to punishment, are deprived of the joy of eternal existence with God in heaven. 
Abolished 2007

A doctrine conjured up with no scriptural validity and quite probably damaged countless peoples lives. Another myth.

Shades of the Inquisition, equally distorted and perverse, and expert in the land of make believe and fear.
Nicely expressed Tommy.
