The media is interpreting the way Satanists respond to John Boehner’s words as if they tell us something about Cruz, but they say more about the Republican establishment.
According to Raw Story the way Satanists respond to John Boehner’s attack on Ted Cruz means that Cruz is worse than Satan. John Boehner, remember, claimed that Ted Cruz was Luciferian.
In case you missed it, here’s a news summary:
It turns out that the Satanic Temple agrees with Boehner’s sentiments — but they said there’s no way Cruz is the living incarnate of Satan.
When asked by the Friendly Atheist, Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves bashed Cruz.
“Cruz’s failures of reason, compassion, decency, and humanity are products of his Christian pandering, if not an actual Christian faith,” Greaves responded. “It grows tedious when pedophile priests and loathsome politicians are conveniently dismissed as Satanic, even as they spew biblical verse and prostrate themselves before the cross, recruiting the Christian faithful. Satanists will have nothing to do with any of them.”
So Liberals get a good laugh because self-identified Satanists think that Cruz is worse than the Devil. Ha ha. Newser.com was happy to report that, “Likening Ted Cruz to ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ is deeply unfair to the Dark One, according to annoyed Satanists.” And further:
Cruz is notoriously unpopular among his fellow Republicans, some of whom agreed that Boehner was doing Satan a disservice, Politico reports. “Maybe he gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz,” New York Rep. Peter King said.
But the real story here (if there ever was one) is that Satanists and some members of the Republican establishment like Peter King admit that they are more like Satan than Ted Cruz is.
Peter King has even suggested that the nomination of Ted Cruz will be the occasion that will send King home to join the Dark Lord. If that doesn’t at least tempt you to support Cruz, your heart is made of stone.
