Apparenly yo've never bothred to read Dante, who is careful to demarcate
his various categories of sin. And of course he put the sin of lust in
upper heel, the lesser sins. It is notable that the lovers damned there
ar _anxiousd_ to have their story told. Fraud is a much more serious sin
than lust.

Better go back and read the five or six opening cantos of Hell, then
reread what Dante says about all of lower hell in geneeral, and frud in
particular. Why in the world would you make such a simple error in re
gard to Dante as this?
