Doing *far* too much thinking

Given that I'm thinking about the Dante quiz. :)

See, the quiz, which I answered as honestly as possible, put me in Purgatory and labeled me as a "repentant believer." Which, in *my* worldview, I *am*, although, "lust" is only a sin if you act upon it with the wrong person or at the wrong time, and gluttony is just a bad habit, not a sin.

But this isn't my worldview, it's Dante's (or the general medieval Catholic pov) and by that standard, they are sins, and that's fine. Except, by that standard, I'm not only not in purgatory, I'm in the circle of heretics because, although I'm not a Pagan, I'm not a Christian, either. In fact, I'm quite stubbornly and wickedly holding to an outdated set of beliefs from that pov.

It's already a long and complex quiz and for the writers to go into such subtle points is way beyond reasonable, but I'm still amused that I'm sitting here in Purgatory, watching the cool folk descend to warmer levels when some of you are probably in better shape than I am.
