Satan visits Harvard

Funny story in today's NY Daily News. "Satanists" are about to hold a Black Mass at Harvard University. Mind you, they're not "real" Satanists, just fun-loving atheists. (I doubt there's such a thing as a real Satanist. Just saying.) Check out the story for further details.

I love the reaction of the Catholic archdiocese of Boston. They must take these things seriously, doncha know. Keeps the rubes in line.
All this talk about Satan has spooked the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Archdiocese of Boston issued a statement blasting the Satanists’ scheduled demonstration and announced plans to conduct a “Holy Hour” during the same time at a nearby church.

“For the good of the Catholic faithful and all people, the Church provides clear teaching concerning Satanic worship,” the statement read. “This activity separates people from God and the human community, it is contrary to charity and goodness, and it places participants dangerously close to destructive works of evil.”
Yadda, yadda, yadda. The devil isn't real, folks, and neither is god. The church makes believe both are real because it keeps those donations flowing in. And that gives them more money to fight gay marriage and keep women subservient.

Religion is a destructive fairytale that blinds believers to the true nature of reality. And when it is not shackled by laws that prevent it from dominating secular society, it establishes a theocracy and becomes a savage, de facto prison for all humanity. Religion is the opposite of rationality and creativity. It stifles and suffocates and obfuscates. It is the most evil invention of mankind.
