On Calvinism

Reading a blog at Parchment and Pen titled "Some Misconceptions About Calvinism," the author, in one of the misconceptions, claims:

Calvinism is not a belief that God creates people in order to send them to hell.
Again, this is not representative of normative Calvinists. While supralapsarians do believe that God creates people to send them to hell, the majority of Calvinists are not supralapsarians.

I have several issues with the Calvinistic doctrine, but this one in particular strikes me as, well, painful. At the root of the teaching is the idea of the elect - that there are a certain group of people that God has chosen to be saved. There are some Calvinists that teach that while God does actively choose some people to be saved, he doesn't actively choose others to go to hell.

This is just silly. It's not possible that God can choose some people to be saved, and not choose others to go to hell. If the only people who can be saved are those that God chooses, then the remaining people who God does not choose are condemned to hell. By not choosing them for heaven, God does indeed choose them for hell! A non-choice is a choice, and that is the only logical extension of this heretical teaching.

So, when Calvinists say that God does not create people for the purpose of sending them to hell, they either don't know what they believe, or they're not smart enough to follow their false doctrine to the inevitable conclusion.
