We have to rank the sin and explain why we put them there.
Can you give me example you would add to hell?
In today's society the levels of hell would be added to Dante's hell or modify. For example where would you rank a pedophile?

One way to approach this is to look at a map of Dante's Hell and think of more modern crimes that match the crimes of that time. For example this map is pretty good. Once you are familar with the map, think of today's world values crimes differently. Is being a traitor still the worst thing in today's society?
Then, once you have the order established, think of modern-day versions. For example, in the Violence area you could have "road rage".
Murderers, thieves, cheaters, drug pushers, prostitutes...that's just a start. What else do you think belongs there?
People promoting hatred of others based on race, religion, sexual orientation, nationality. etc., would be in my version of hell. I'm afraid that would put many people in hell who assume they are going to heaven...
In addition to the obvious that some have mentioned above, I would also have racists, bigots and spiteful/mean-spirited people.
