    On what basis do you make that claim?

    --
    When all has been considered, it seems to me to be the irresistible intuition
    that infinite punishment for finite sin would be unjust, and therefore wrong.
    We feel that even weak and erring Man would shrink from such an act. And we
    cannot conceive of God as acting on a lower standard of right and wrong.
    - Lewis Carroll (author of Alice in Wonderland), "Eternal Punishment,"
    Diversions and Digressions of Lewis Carroll

    I helped the EMTs at a car wreck and got blood all over my arms
