Man Doomed to Hell in Every Major Religion Launches Crowdfunding Campaign for the Trip

On the popular crowdfunding page, gofundme, Justin Colella states:

“Ok so I’m launching this because I’ve been told by thousands of people over the course of my life that if I don’t watch my step, I’m going to “Hell”. Like the majority of humanity, I grew up indoctrinated by the church through tradition and before I had reached an age of sufficient reason.

So I thought I’d go through a quick list of what I’m going to this literal “Hell” for and just to make sure, I’m going to let you guys watch as I partake in several of these mortal sins right here and now…

And since I’m presumably going to burn for all of eternity in a literal lake of fire, I think it’s only fair that I get to live by the beach or have some extra fun for however many years I have left on Earth!

This may seem like a joke but it’s important to keep in mind that 3.8 billion people on the planet belong to one of the 3 Abrahamic religions of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism and thus believe in a literal hell/lake of fire where I presumably will go and burn forever and ever for all of eternity.”

In the video Justin breaks dozens of biblical laws including eating shellfish via shrimp and crab, pork via bacon, sausage, and salami, drinking alcohol, blasphemy, lying and deceit, sedition, heresy, and a plethora of other mortal sins.

In a statement Mr. Colella says that he wanted to meet the greatest minds of our time, and according to the largest religions in the world, they all currently reside in “Hell.”

The thinkers and philosophers Mr. Colella mentions in the video are ones such as:


“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”

Thomas Jefferson:

“The Christian god can easily be pictured as virtually the same god as the many ancient gods of past civilizations. The Christian god is a three headed monster; cruel, vengeful and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites.”

Mark Twain:

“It ain’t those parts of the Bible that I can’t understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand.”

John Adams:

“This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it.”

Benjamin Franklin:

“Lighthouses are more helpful than churches.”

Francis Bacon:

“At all times the philosophy met tiresome and oppressive enemy, namely superstition and blind, excessive religious fervor.”

George Carlin:

“Tell people there’s an invisible man in the sky who created the universe, and the vast majority will believe you. Tell them the paint is wet and they have to touch it to be sure.”

Galileo Galilei:

“I do not feel obliged to believe that same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect had intended for us to forgo their use.”

Thomas Paine:

“Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.”


“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool.”


“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”

Hypatia of Alexandria:

“All formal dogmatic religions are fallacious and must never be accepted by self-respecting persons as final.”

In the video Mr. Colella states:

“If this crowdfunding campaign doesn’t raise one single dollar, and all we do is make a few people out there think, it’s a massive victory. In the words of Socrates, ‘I cannot teach anyone anything, I can only make them think.’ So if that’s all this does, if this doesn’t raise one penny and nobody donates, but this gets out there and this message gets out and even one person thinks for a second about this fear based control system and thinks about how we can really unite humanity, and how we can really be one family on this planet and we can really unite everybody, because these things have done nothing but divide. We’ve tried it that way, ok, and we could try it a new way and we could just eliminate fear. If it does nothing more than that then this was a massive victory.”

As far as his personal spiritual beliefs, Mr. Colella says they can be best exemplified by the Thomas Paine quote:

“The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.”
