Playing Games

I don’t know what to make of this

It seems too warped even from the perspective of the interviewee. A mockery of Satanism. A kind of comedic denunciation of any cult. An attention-seeking device. 

Satan is, by definition, evil. No one in his right mind would choose evil over good. More to the point, no one would, if mad to such an extent, think that his position can become in any way popular among the public. 

This satanism theatre is, more probably, an atheist’s plaything to mock Christianity, enjoying the scandal they cause among Christians and getting name recognition in the process. 

Take the project to erect a Satan statue. What meaning can it have, if not a mockery of organised religion? Who would proclaim evil good, and good evil? And if it be so, why would the proposers of such a theory not proceed to give allegiance to… good, once ascertained that it is… evil? And so back, and forth, in a mad ping-pong? 

No. The organiser of such stunts says himself he “was” an atheist, and it is very obvious to me he and his followers all are. Then if they believed in Satan, they would as a consequence believe in God; and noone in his right mind would choose eternal suffering. 

Satan is, by definition, the Father of Lies. He works through subtle deception, not open approval. The most evil people generally think they’re good. Pol Pot, Lenin and Che Guevara no doubt felt they were true philanthropists. Nowadays even Angelina Jolie thinks she has some higher calling. Others, like Stalin, were simply not afraid of punishment. 

No. I don’t buy this one. I think this is nothing more than a twisted form of attention-seeking atheist wannabe comedy. 

But notice this: by not believing in Satan and using him as an anti-Christian vehicle, this people … make the work of the devil. 

Satan, the Father of Lies, deceives them into believing he obviously does not exist, and uses them for his purposes through this means. He mocks in a twisted way the unbelief of those who mock Christianity, and lures them into his net by leading them to believe there is no net at all, and they can have a great time making a mockery of it. These people think themselves very bright and very funny guys (and, possibly, gals); but there are no smart guys – and no smart gals – in hell. There are only people too clever by half, thinking themselves so superior to those superstitious people, and who were too in love with their own intellect – or whatever was in its place – to humbly accept their allotted place in the great scheme of things. 

Therefore, these “satanists” are being had at their own game. Whilst mocking, they are being made a mockery of. Whilst thinking they are playing a subtle game of deception, Satan in playing the same game to them. Whilst feeling so smart, they are being very stupid. They are flies who have decided they are too smart to believe in the existence of the spider as they fly toward the net. 

Which, in turn, would be funny.  If it wasn’t so serious, and so unspeakably tragic.

  1. This episode demonstrates that American religious pluralism as envisioned by Madison, Jefferson et al. really is not friendly to Catholicism precisely because -as in this case – it can be used against you. We should return to the teaching of the popes on only the one true religion enjoying the protection of the state.

    • In my view, the old vision you mention worked for a long time, because the Christian frame in which it was inserted was such that monuments to Satan were not conceivable.
      It is when Christianity disappears from the hearts and minds that rules about religious pluralism begin not to work.

  2. Yes, according to atheists we believe in “sky fairies”…their favorite come back. What is sad is that they lack even natural faith which can easily see the reality of God and His attributes via simple reason and logic. It is very tragic that they never learned basic reason, logic and fundamental philosophy…an abuse of Natural Law against them i.e. to know and to choose. I would sit them down with a copy of C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity, some Thomas Aquinas and maybe some basic Catholic videos to help them get their head out the sand. They look like fools…lets pray this gets the attention of some faithful Catholics who pray for them and help them back from the abyss. God bless~
