I saw this morally challenging quiz at So Many Books. Where would you end up in Dante’s Inferno? Though Dante’s theology is questionable, I’m glad to learn I’m headed for:
You have escaped damnation and made it to Purgatory, a place where the dew of repentance washes off the stain of sin and girds the spirit with humility. Through contrition, confession, and satisfaction by works of righteousness, you must make your way up the mountain. As the sins are cleansed from your soul, you will be illuminated by the Sun of Divine Grace, and you will join other souls, smiling and happy, upon the summit of this mountain. Before long you will know the joys of Paradise as you ascend to the ethereal realm of Heaven.
I wasn’t sure how to answer the question about taking pleasure in other people’s misery. Does laughing at Eastern Canadians when they get blizzards count?
