“Most Christians profess to believe in Hell. Yet have you ever met a Christian who seemed as afraid of hell as he was of cancer? Even very devout Christians will make jokes about Hell. They wouldn;t make jokes about leprosy, or RAF pilots with their faces burnt away: the subject is too painful.”
–From George Orwell’s “As I Please: Essays, Journalism & Letters, vol. 3, 1943-1945” (1988)
