>Who believes in a literal hell except christians?
Lots of people. Vedic texts describe dozens of hell realms, where one is tortured by demons after death for expiation for their earthly sins such as eating meat, lusting after women, etc. Here are just a few of the punishments people will be subject to:
<Kumbhipaka (cooked in a pot): A person who cooks beasts and birds alive is cooked alive in boiling oil by Yamadutas here, for as many years as there were hairs on the bodies of their animal victims.
<Taptasurmi/Taptamurti (red-hot iron statue): A man or woman who indulges in illicit sexual relations with a woman or man is beaten by whips and forced to embrace red-hot iron figurines of the opposite sex
<Puyoda (water of pus): Shudras (workmen-caste) and husbands or sexual partners of lowly women and prostitutes – who live like beasts devoid of cleanliness and good behaviour – fall in Puyoda, the ocean of pus, excreta, urine, mucus, saliva and other repugnant things. Here, they are forced to eat these disgusting things
The list goes on and on. These same Naraka (Hell) realms are also present in Buddhism and Jainism, involving the same sort of brutal torture and suffering for earthly deeds. Let's not forget Islam either, which has a doctrine of hell that is sprinkled all throughout the Qur'an. Pagan Greeks also had an idea of Hell, such as Tartarus, where people such as Tantalus, Sisyphus, Ixion and others are being eternally punished in various ways. Norse mythology has the location of Náströnd where Níðhöggr chews on people such as those guilty of murder, rape, and oath-breaking, etc.
Christian hell isn't that much of an exception.
>no one would believe in it.
People don't want to believe in hell because they want to believe that nothing can happen to them after they die. That's the main reason.
>Your heaven sounds boring and gay as fuck.
That's because you've fallen for the meme of playing a harp while sitting on a White cloud, which isn't even in the Bible. It's funny that you imagine that you would have any sort of communion with 'your people' in hell either, because you are already going to be deprived of everything good, everything relating to life, benevolence, peace, etc. It's just eternal suffering brought about by one's free will rejection of God. It's not even going to be literal fire. Those in hell will be scourged with spiritual 'fire' infinitely beyond our comprehension.
>Crusaders weren't exactly known for being 'good christians'.
Daily reminder that the same God who manifests in the flesh in the NT is the same one ordering the extermination of everything that breathes in Canaan in the Old Testament, precisely because they were degenerate pagans who sacrificed their own children to demons and engaged in every sort of abominable practice.
>Except some of us still remember when they caved and shut all their churches down last year.
The word church just means a gathering. Imagine thinking that you need some designated building. "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20. Every good Christian I know has not gotten the (((Mark)))
