Vote for Obama, go to hell?
... I was reminded of something that happened at Vatican II. A US Catholic article from Sept. 1995, Detour: the Commission on Birth Control (from Turning point), quotes this exchange from the last meeting of the Commission in which conservatives opine that the church can't change its doctrine because it had already sent people to hell based on it .....
[Spanish Jesuit Father Marcelino] Zalba ... "What then," he asked, "with the millions we have sent to hell if these norms were not valid?"
Patty Crowley [a married Catholic from Chicago] could not restrain herself. "Father Zalba," she interjected, "do you really believe God has carried out all your orders?"
A momentary stunned silence followed, then some chuckles at this intrusion of common sense in these austere deliberations.
