WaPo Defends Satan, Blames Christians for Racism, Violence

In the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, President Donald Trump faced heavy criticism for his initial refusal to call out the hate groups responsible for the attack that left one person dead and dozens wounded. But as Trump waffled, religious leaders, many of whom are on the president’s Evangelical Advisory Board, were quick to denounce the alt-right, KKK, and white supremacists involved as evil, satanic, and antithetical to Christian values.

While most people would not object to likening the racist and hateful ideologies of such groups to the devil, the Washington Post published a curious op-ed on Wednesday that rails against Christianity, while arguing Satan is not to blame for tragedies like Charlottesville.
