`Hell House' to include sin scene of date rape

The Abundant Life Christian Center in this Denver suburb plans to stage a date rape as part of its lavish - and controversial - Halloween production called "Hell House."

"It's awesome," said the Rev. Keenan Roberts, associate pastor.The date rape will be one of five scenarios to be played out. Each of them, Roberts said, are examples of what can lead a person to hell.

"Hell House" drew more than 14,000 people in its first two years. Lighting, sound, scenery, smells and costumes, all of professional quality, are aimed to scare people out of sin.

A response room is provided for "Hell House" visitors to discuss what they've seen and seek counseling if they choose.
