Here is a good one, according to the Vatican man and women commit different sins.

“Men are more likely to commit lustful sins while women are led down the path of pride, according to a Vatican report carried out by the Pope's personal theologian.”

Does that mean there is different intensity of punishment and separate sections for the genders in "Hell"?

I knew I was headed for hell anyway. What troubles me here is that I be there with the religious right, the catholic church, and the entire republican party.

They won't be in hell with the rest of us. All they have to do is say "Sorry Jesus." and *POOF* right through the pearly gates they go....

Actually, Dante envisioned Hell as having multiple sections for different types of sinners. Here is a description. Quite interesting.

Also noted in the article that there are some new capital sins: "genetic modification, human experimentations, polluting the environment, social injustice, causing poverty, financial gluttony and and taking or selling drugs."

What if the sin is homosexuality? Would you still be banished to a same-sex hell? That's like throwing Brer Rabbit into the briar patch.
