Pat Robertson: Radical Islamism "Satanic"

I've slapped around Pat for saying foolish things before. I don't think this is foolish at all.

Now, being agnostic, I'm not sure about this God chap I hear so much about, and I'm much less a believer in Satan.

But I've used the word "satanic" in this connection before, myself. More metaphorically than Pat seems to use it -- I'm guessing he thinks that Islamism is authored by and encouraged by the Fallen Angel -- but it's apt whatever your beliefs.

An religion that venerates killers and exalts in mayhem and blood and death is, metaphorically or literally, your choice, satanic (or Satanic). I don't even think it's debatable.

Is there anything more Lovecraftian than a God of Murder? Well, sure, there are things that are more Lovecraftian (like Cthulhu his own bad self), but still, the idea of a Murder-God is pretty dark and strange.

And a nice-sized fraction of the world's population now worships at the Murder-God's throne of blood.

Via Muslihoon, who heartily agrees.
