Are Satanists Now the Good Guys?

Devil’s advocate: are satanists now the good guys in the fight against the evangelical right?

A new film, Hail Satan?, portrays the Satanic Temple as a voice of reason and humanism in the US. Has the time come to rehabilitate the dark lord?

Over the past century of popular culture, Satan has acquired the souls of delta blues musicians, incited youth rebellions, possessed small children and goats, impregnated unsuspecting women and transmitted evil through backwards lyrics on heavy metal records. But recently, to paraphrase the Rolling Stones, the nature of his game has been puzzling us.

The forces aligned against Satan have become so objectionable that he no longer looks like the bad guy. They include such groups as the Westboro Baptist church, notorious for its hate speech against LGBTQ people, Jews, Muslims and other groups, all of which it condemns as “satanic frauds”. There’s the Trump administration, in league with the US religious right, which has been aggressively pushing anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ legislation, not to mention engaging in overt Islamophobia. Those forces would also include the 20,000 people who recently signed an online petition condemning the Amazon TV adaptation of the cult novel Good Omens – about a demon and an angel – as “another step to make satanism appear normal”.

    Film title Hail Satan, should be titled Hail Zionist talmudic state of Israel.
    In 1956 Nikita Kurushchev said we will take America without firing a shot, we do not have to invade the US, we will destroy you from within.His words are almost reality
    On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist goals into the Congressional Record. The list was derived from researcher Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.” These principles are well worth revisiting today in order to gain insights into the thinking and strategies of much of our so-called liberal elite

  2. What kind of Satanists are we talking about the theistic sacrifice your first born child kind or the Atheist thumb their nose at Christian Fundamentalists nutter types?

  3. There are a vast amount of people who give a nod to their religious upbringing, follow the Golden Rule, work and live in harmony with their family, friends and neighbors. Yet they get no mention by the MSM. Just the Kooks are in the MSM narration. Gives you pause, does it not?
