Rejoice that billions will burn in hell

Talking to Fundamentlaists reminds me why I stopped talking to fundamentalists.

I wrote:
There is your argument. That it *IS* is objectively “good” to gloat at billions of people suffering infinite, eternal torment for the sins of a human lifetime.
End Bringer replied:
...Aquinas was talking about the “rejoicing” being that good and justice has triumphed (those billions of people DO deserve it), rather than being happy suffering is being inflicted in itself.
And then:
Aquinas’s... was saying it’s objectively good to be glad justice and righteousness have triumphed, rather than simply because people suffer. If people suffer BECAUSE justice and righteousness are triumphant than the only conclusion is that their punishment is earned.
Rejoice that billions of people will burn in hell! They deserve it.

If you feel like you need to be punished for something, the whole thread is full of Fundie Fail.
