Torturing people in eternal hell glorifies God, apparently

Fundy comment of the day:

I can hear Jesus say over and over again: "You err because you do not know the scriptures." Hell is not so hard to figure out. It is not figurative. It is not here on earth. It is not temporary. It is not simply separation from God (certainly the knowing presence of God and the work of His hands is indelibly there for eternity). Modern evangelicals and Christians of many flavors fear man and not God. We use the wisdom of man in a never-ending PR campaign to get the world to finally like us, so in our false and incomplete modern gospel of emphasizing the "love" of God without the justice and reality of what one is being saved from, we diminish the holiness of God, and our Christian culture in music, preaching, teaching, literature, etc, reflects it. When will we realize that the everlasting destruction of Hell actually glorifies God by making His efforts to get our attention through the millinia, especially via the cross and resurrection, as well as other characteristics of His, such as His patience, longsuffering and forbearance in spite of our rebellion, stand out like a diamond against a black velvet cloth?

My first comment in reply to this was comment was deleted. I wonder if this was because I questioned the notion of God being a moral monster with a bad temper... Or if it because I questioned the literal truth of the Bible?

The more I talk to Fundamentalists, the more I realize that they actually do believe God is nothing more than an infinitely unspeakable asshole.

Student freak out: Why does evolution kill black people?

A poor girl freaks out when her professor won't answer her question "why does evolution kill black people". Oh dear. Fundamentalism and mental illness do not go well together... I wonder if the student's Pastor (or whoever else fed her this nonsense) feels proud of themself?

The Youtube comments to the video contain this gem:
@DrTruthiness you're in no position to deem that nigger female as crazy unless you are a qualified mental health professional. Therefore its just as likely her outburst was a result of her inherint inability to cope inside a modern technological superior IQ white civilization. Her race therefore is the problem here because of the inherint low IQ and instability within her DNA. Has fuck all to do with her shit skin color as you bleeding heart nigger hugging queers try to make it all about.
