Good solid evil just isn’t that easy to come by

This was a follow-up to the post about the old guy wearing a Vietnam Veteran cap so’s to try to get people to listen to him talk about his Satanist religion. This was posted October 1, 2013.

Hi readers.

The old Satanist wearing the Vietnam Veteran cap I wrote about a couple of weeks ago was at the coin laundry again. He was telling me the difference between Satanists and devil worshipers, which he isn’t one of, he says.

“Even the devil worshipers,” he explained, “Just aren’t all that evil. They try, but it’s mostly just waving a bloody shirt at it.”

“Devil worshipers try but can’t pull it off?” Me, thinking this over.

“That’s right. You’d think there’d be plenty of evil for them to get into, but the really evil people don’t want anything to do with them. Not even the somewhat evil people, Catholics, Jews, Baptists and Muslims. They find out a person’s a devil worshiper they think poorly of him. Even when they’re jumping the hurdles for award-winning evil.”

Shaking my head. “I never knew that. You’d think especially Catholics and Zionists and Muslims would open their arms and their hearts to honest-to-goodness no-shit devil worshipers. Why is that, do you think?”

He shook his head, too. “I don’t know why it is. I’m not a devil worshiper and I’m not any of those others. I’m just a Satanist trying to get through life as best I can. But if I wanted to be really evil I’d have one hell of a time managing to do it. I wouldn’t know where to start.”

  1. There was no devil or satin in the Old Testament, just a serpent Genesis and an angel that talked God into testing Jobe’s faith!
    The devil is a Christian invention that they use to frighten people with!…a boogie man!

    • That little wager between God and Job ought to tell us everything we need to know about that old Abrahamic sort of deity. Gracias, Old Jules

      • And Hell is a Christian invention. When you combine the fear of death, judgement, hell(eternal torment and the devil….this is a very powerful threat used to bring people under your control.
        We’re did all the love go? It’s not about love at all!

        • I was at the Houston Museum of Fine Art back in the late 1960s looking at a rectangular pillar leaning over 45 degrees or so which was represented as a piece of sculpture. The guy with me said, “I don’t know much about art, but I know what I wouldn’t want to have fall on me.” That’s pretty much the way I feel about religion. Gracias, Old Jules
