It’s been twelve years since I read Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, and even then I didn’t make it all the way through. It was for class, though, and we had a lot of discussions, so I picked up some key points.

And I definitely don’t agree with everything Alighieri thought, just to be totally up front about that. Some of the lustful people, those violent against themselves or against nature, just for a few examples, I really don’t think need to be condemned to hell for eternity. But there are a few things I think are absolutely on track:

First, that separation of church and state is vital.

Second, that compound fraud - that is, fraud that has an element of violence - is among the worst of all sins (crimes), especially when committed against people who are supposed to be under your care.

Finally, that there are some people in the world who are so evil that their souls are swept away to hell to start suffering early, while a demon takes over their body and continues their work.

Honestly, it gives me some small measure of comfort to know that, whenever I think that the Trump administration should to go straight to hell, at least one school of thought posits that they are already there.
