Age of Majority

One of those who enters the fray 
draws the line at  
opposition to belief in hell
still afraid 
that God would hate him, 
thought how very unpleasant to imagine 
this Old Man, Uncle Figure, 
Kindly Archetype 
hating you, turning His back, 
wanting to leave your house, 
sniffing at the impurities. 
The question is, too late?

    "Belief in hell" rather than "Believe", was that intentional? If so, I like it. It's a bit more striking. Great lines!

    Thanks Drake. "Belief" is a noun==a state of mind in this case. That is the correct word. "Believe" is a verb.
