What is your response when people threaten you with religious punishments? (i.e. Hell/Jahannam)

So your loving god will punish me because I don't love him back? Don't sound so loving to me...

Tell them it is just a control method. I am no longer afraid.

I just politely laugh, and say well, good on him.

Throw it back in their lap.

"You're going to hell for not believing."

"Does that make you feel better about yourself?"

I had a badly autistic child and was told it was my punishment for being sinful! The cruelty was awful!

Oh no! Now you've got me worried! Then, perhaps, I might ask why they believe in hell. I might suggest that it might be preferred to the hell being made on earth. Or, perhaps, you've already brought me there.

I make up some nonsense about the FSM and what it is going to do to them for not doing it. I love it when they claim I am being stupid suggesting such things as I can point out to them that it is exactly how their nonsense sounds to everyone else.

I say that blame and severe punishment destroy self esteem which is the primary cause of aggression destructive behavior.

I basically ignore them. I don't believe in either a heaven or a hell. If someone insists on pushing it in my face, I tell them what Lucidmoon does, that if there is a hell, I'll have a lot of good company.

I always say “good, that’s where all the awesome people will be.”

I can't help but chuckle, and I say "If there is a hell, then they will have the best music, the best beer and weed, and all my friends will be there"

I have an expressive face. Do not need to say anything, give them 'the look'
