Help me here. No, please, I really mean it.
Evangelicals and Catholics believe not only in their God but also in Satan, right? God is good and Satan is evil. Or God brings good and Satan brings evil. There is an eternal battle, right? And although God has the edge, Satan is pretty powerful.
Evil things are driven by Satan as I understand it. Those evil things would be crime and liberals if I’ve got it right. Okay, I take the liberal hit so let's move to crime. If someone preys on little children they are evil, I think, and driven by Satan. Am I on track here? And if you murder someone innocent and deserving, Satan probably had a hand in it. And there is such a thing as Satanism. It appears from time to time. In fact, it was that damn Satan who got us thrown out of Eden. Just over an apple—or knowledge or something.
If I went in and desecrated a church, an Evangelical or Catholic Church, I would be driven by Satan. Satan would have possessed me, right? Most evil things are attributable to Satan. Rape, for instance, would be attributable to Satan.
So to the extent that I understand the above, rape would be an act driven by Satan. The rapist would have been, almost or entirely, possessed by Satan. So why, please help me here, would Evangelicals and Catholics want to protect what is essentially the spawn of Satan? Something that I can’t calculate, other than as hatred of women trumping hatred of Satan, is happening here.
Why, why wouldn’t Evangelicals and Catholics want to abort the spawn of Satan? Why? I understand that this is not about logic and reason. I’m trying just to use the metric of common sense, the logic of the common folks. But I am stumped. Please help me here.
