Yes, that means Ghandi spends eternity in hell, as well as Mother Teresa (since she's "Catholic" and therefore not "Christian" according to my Protestant parents).
Wha??? Catholic isn't Christian? That makes no sense... Catholics were first... and the Protestants spun off from them... How can they be not Christian?
(Or is my Catholic upbringing painting history incorrectly?)
