FTT Off-Topic: Speaking Ill Of The Despicable Dead

Not sports, not sorry.

On the off chance that we can help to avoid our friends in Great Britain from a 15-years and counting white wash of what was an incredibly divisive time (though, to be honest, y'all are way too good at remembering reality to let things come to that)...

Margaret Thatcher is dead. Given that her political beliefs led her to inspire riots, a continuation of the war in Northern Ireland that was more or less quickly solved after her banishment, the greatest income inequalities in her country since the Great Depression, and a thoroughly unnecessary war to show the word that gender meant nothing to grandstanding...  here is what some folks believe she is now experiencing.

  • Matthew 13:50 “furnace of fire…weeping and gnashing of teeth”

  • Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched”

  • Revelation 14:10 “tormented with fire and brimstone”

  • Revelation 14:11 “the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever and they have no rest day and night”

  • Revelation 20:14 “This is the second death, the lake of fire”

  • Revelation 20:15 “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire”

  • Note that I'm just limiting myself to what's in the book here, folks.

    I'm also not going to fall into the educated / elite trap of showing equanimity; the middle of the road is for dead animals. Burn, burn, burn.

    And any words that I could add would be nothing compared to this. Play her out, Elvis.

    Oh, and, um, condolences. That she didn't die sooner, and more painfully.
