It is those that literally believe in a Devil that freak out even most Satanists. I’m not saying you can’t believe in that, but - it’s bizarre. Actual Devil worship has more to do with Christian Demonology and stuff like the Malleus Maleficarum.

There is no mechanism for the change you want, and most of the country wouldn't want it. I hate it when the American left become caricatures of themselves. How they mirror what the Tea Party was on the other side of the coin.
