Hell Now Icy Cold claims crazy-ass German pope.

"Much can be learned of a man from his conception of hell. Rereading scriptural accounts, the new pope, former cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Benedict XVI, has suggested something novel. Noting Christ's references to "a chattering of teeth" among the damned, he reminds us that such chattering is not the reaction to burning heat but to extreme cold, and describes the pains of hell as those of the most terrible and desolate coldness: an emblematic hell for the icily brilliant new pope.",essay,66648,6.html
