Remember the thing that primarily provokes this reaction is fear. Hell has no offensive weapons against Christ and His Church. Hell only has gates, and gates are for defense. On top of that, we're promised by Jesus that the gates of Hell will not stand against His Church. (Matt. 16:18) This means that the denizens of Hell live in fear as they are assailed by the hosts of the Kingdom of Heaven. When this sort of story pops up in the news, it's a sign that the siege is working and the besieged are getting desperate.
