What celebrities/politicians/famous people would you put in all the circles of hell?

Asked by troubleinharlem (7978points) May 14th, 2011 from iPhone

There are nine levels:

Virtuous Pagans
Lustful
Gluttons
Greedy/Wrathful
Heretics
Violent
Fraudulent
Blasphemers/Traitors

Who would you put, and where?
I’d put Galileo in for heretics, Che Guevera or Hitler for violence, Bill Clinton for lust, and Russell Crowe for anger.

Scot Walker, Ryan, Bush, Palin, Christie and anyone who Scape Goats hard working Middle Class people for the current Economy in the US. Anyone who thinks the Elitist and Reactionaries should rule America. That Unions are the problem. That special needs programs,Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare should be cut.
I believe that Congress should end their free Insurance and free Vacations to cut the deficit.
I think the wealthy should pay higher taxes.
I think that the above people and those who support them are immoral.
When they reap what they sow they will get it. Karma has a nasty habit of giving evil people what they deserve.

@basstrom188 : Mother Teresa? What did she ever do?

Ladymia69's avatar

@troubleinharlem She believed that suffering and sickness of the poor was warranted under Catholic doctrine, and beautiful in God’s eyes. The bitch.

Kardamom's avatar

@ladymia69 If she truly believed that, then why did she try to help the sick and the poor? She put herself through a tremendous amount of suffering herself to help those people. If she thought it was so beautiful (the suffering of people) then why didn’t she just let them suffer? What the heck do you think she was doing? Playing Canasta?

P.S. I am not Catholic or religious or Christian in any way. But Mother Teresa seems like one of the best people the world has had to offer. Want to explain why she wasn’t?

I guess I need an explanation for the Bob Geldoff answer too. Seems like a nice enough chap. @basstrom188?

@Kardamom I was kidding about her being a bitch lol

I am not saying she had the best of intentions and all that (dangerous) crap, but she had one HUGE flaw: she was fanatically religious. In case you haven’t noticed, those who tend to follow Christ believe that suffering is a teacher, and brings us closer to him. She was quite short-sighted in many areas. But she did her best. Still, she had issues .
