all the WELS Lutheran pastors I have been in services with mention the devil in his guises frequently, as well. so what? we are the pawns in the war for the soul between God and Satan, and that's just how it is. Mankind is flawed and sinful from birth, and calling to our better thoughts really should be core to all Christian denominations. the Pope will be judged when he's gone in the Catholic world... but for now, sounds like he's still working hard leading his flock.
They thought the devil was loose in Salem, Massachusettes too. Too bad 19 people had to die before they figured out none of it was real.
"So, one would expect an upswing in his malicious activity in the wake of de-Christianization and secularization in the world and a surge in things like drug use, pornography and superstition." I had a good laugh over this line. What is any of this, if not superstition?
