It's really pretty simple. Just fill out this simple form.

1. Are you a Mormon?
2. Have you ever strayed from Mormon principles?
3. Are you of Eurasian origin?

If you have answered "No" to one or more of above questions, you are going to Hell. Congratulations!


So Eurasian Mormons go to hell unless they stray from the religion's principles? Talk about a conflict of interests!

Lots of loopholes, but just 144,000 spots in Heaven. Out of seven billion, your odds are 1 to 48,610 - about the same as hitting a royal in a single hand!



Well not if you are a Christian.

It's right there in the Revelation, so no, no way around it. Everyone else goes to Hell. Resistance is futile.

I plopped down a $10 matchplay and a $10 bill on the Pass Line at a casino that will remain nameless. The shooter rolled an immediate come-out eleven. ... The dealer paid me, I scooped everything up, tipped the dealers $1


Whoa! Whoa! Who are you and what have you done with mkl? Easiest dollar that dealer ever made.

So I went to the guard station and asked whom I should pay. The guard said "just forget about it." But I insisted that I pay somebody. The guard just laughed and said something like "do what you gotta do." So I asked if I could pay him and he said "go ahead." So I gave him some money, I don't remember how much, and he accepted it.

In retrospect, I'm sure he just pocketed it, and the Frontier was out the money it cost them to buy that glass. I would send them a check if they were still around. Okay, Catholics, how much time in purgatory do I have to serve for that?


Gee, ya think? Of course he pocketed it! And the loss of a single mug is what brought down the Frontier. Thanks a lot.

Sweet mug! I see a pair of those did NOT sell on an ebay auction recently. Bid was only $15 for 2. No sale.

Heck, if they were valuable, don't you think someone would have simply run off a good big batch of them and then dribbled them slowly onto the collector's market via ebay?

The minor stuff, like splitting tens, does get you X years in North Las Vegas, or Purgatory, whichever is less attractive to you.


There are very good reasons that Paradise is on the opposite side of town from North Las Vegas.

my 3 cents:

*dealer errors that I don't recognize immediately I blow off. As this thread pretty much confirms, it is too awkward to correct later [and may not even be appreciated if immediately pointed out]. Immediately recognized, yes, I nonetheless will point out, fighting temptation at times.

*yep, the WoO's transgression, knowingly doing it, is definitely worse. Sorry. Bribing the security guy made it worse. You better hope that Purgatory is the worst that comes of this [g].

*There is a Kennedy that had children with a woman he married and still was able to get his marriage nullified by the Catholic Church. So Mr. Shackleford just needs to convert and pay the Greenbacks it seems.

NLV seems to have tackled the problems of bad cops, so I see NLV as nowhere near as bad as people describe it.

Quote: Wizard

Would this be the difference between a venial and a mortal sin? In other words mortal sins, the worse kind, are premeditated, and venial sins are accidental? Can you elaborate on what you have to do be absolved of each kind, and the punishment if you don't?



Being a Protestant, I search for the answer from the Scripture, unguided by the church.

First John 5.16-17: "...There is sin that is mortal;... All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not mortal."

I think he leaves it hanging there.

A Catholic among us can probably answer your question.
