In his book Summa Theologica that prototypical theologian Saint Thomas
Aquinas speculated on what heaven would be like, Just as santaklausologians
speculate on what Santa Klaus's workshop would be like. Aquinas said:
“That the saints may enjoy their beatitude and the grace of God more
abundantly they are permitted to see the punishment of the damned in hell.”
Apparently this self appointed expert on ethics was so deeply into bondage
and S&M that he took it as a given that the saved in heaven would be turned
on by seeing someone get tortured for a infinite number of years. The
church liked what Aquinas had to say so much that less than 50 years after
his death they turned this moral imbecile into a saint.
