Quote from: Tank on November 09, 2021, 04:35:43 PMThank you for your thoughts.My question hinges on the intent of the person making the threat. If a theist threatens me (a never-theist atheist) with hell it just makes me metaphorically shake my head. But in their eyes they are threatening me with a fate worse than killing me. They are threatening me with eternal torture. In the UK there is a law against malicious communication. A perfect example would be a death threat on the internet. Should a threat of being sent to Hell constitute malicious communication? If so it is a criminal offence.
