There Never Have Been Any Moderates

Just the uncommitted.

The angels (pursuing a blank banner) who refused to side with God or Satan — so abhorrent to Dante Alighieri that they couldn’t get into Heaven or Hell

They were thrown out of heaven that it be not tainted
But the depths of hell refused to receive them
Lest their presence incite the contempt of those there.
— Dante, “Inferno” Canto 3, tr. Vincent Di Stefano.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Revelations 3:16, KJV
