One last post with a Satanic theme

This will make three posts in a row about Satan. Kinda fun, leading into Sunday, and all.

Remember the recent insane Town of Greece v. Galloway ruling from the Supreme Court? The one that said it's just fine and dandy to open up secular state meetings with prayer? Yes, we have nitwits on the Supreme Court. (Reality check: these are the same people who think corporations are people. They have a tenuous and faltering grip on reality.)

On the heels of this stunningly idiotic, un-American decision, a Satanist has asked to open a meeting in Florida with a Satanic prayer. Be careful what you wish for, my wingnut friends.
“I just want equal billing. We allow various religious nutjobs to give a prayer. They pray to Jesus who is make-believe, god who is make-believe, why not Satan who is make-believe?”

“Why discriminate against one make-believe god over another?” he continued.
That's really what's at the heart of all this, folks: make believe. I hope he gets a chance to offer the prayer. Hopefully someone will record the reaction among the pious attendees and share it on YouTube. Fun!
