Andrew Sullivan at his most vacuous

Chris Matthews gathered a small flock of believers to talk about whether Hell exists or not. Unfortunately, he couldn’t be bothered to find someone who wasn’t delusional to sit on his panel, so we’ve just got a gassy series of empty statements like rarefied flatulence that say nothing at all except that they’re pretty darned sure they’re all experts on the afterlife. Couldn’t they have invited even on atheist so that I’d be unable to dismiss the whole pointless exercise as the wanking of idiots?

If you can’t bear the thought of listening to this nonsense, Amanda Marcotte has done a fine job of extracting the subtext.
