Default Re: In Nomine....does it have a "Pro-Heaven" bias?

Hell is hellish, but at least you continue to exist and exist as you. I'd rather cease to exist than be stripped down to a mockery of self to further some entity's army of soul-robots.

Also the idea of humans and demons joining hell because they hate bullies is wonderfully ironic.
