The Devil is Out of the Closet and is a Liberal

Excerpt from Catholic Stand

Ever since the devil convinced Adam and Eve to eat the apple, it has been game on! In the past, he mostly worked undercover because obvious evil repelled most people.

Of late, however, the devil feels safe enough to come out of the closet. He once operated under the cover of atheists like Madeline Murray O-Hare who fought to rid the world of public prayer and religious displays. More often these days, the satanic church works openly. For instance, in Lansing, Mich. last Christmas, a “snaketivity” scene was erected at the capitol. No one had bothered with an actual nativity scene until after the satanic one showed up. Then, Bronners Christmas store in Frankenmuth, MI quickly loaned one out.

The Satanists protest religious displays and demand equal time. In Oklahoma a Satanist group sued to remove the Ten Commandments from its capitol or else allow for a nine-foot-tall, 2,000-pound statue of Baphomet, a horned demon. Rather than have the 1-ton demon preside, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the state had to remove a 6-foot tall granite Ten Commandments. The reason on paper: it violates the state’s constitutional ban against the use of public funds or property to benefit a religion. The real reason—and the one that the Satanists claimed: evil won. There was a time when being offensive to community standards kept such rubbish at bay.

Dancing with the Devil

What has happened to our community? Many lost their sense of reason. In an interview with CNN affiliate KOCO, Bruce Prescott, a Baptist minister who was against the religious display said, “I’m not opposed to Ten Commandments monuments. I’m just opposed to the placement on government property, because I think that the government needs to be neutral.” Neutral? No such thing. Take away good, and evil moves in.
