The Incontinence of Evil (Amateur Hour)

--- @smithmarion: Evil appears to be incontinent in 2020: Antifa protestors sacrifice heart of a mammal to the "god of chaos" in satanic ritual on an American street in Boston. @ChurchofSatan: [Replying to @smithmarion] This is not a satanic ritual, nor does is have anything to do with Satanism. [via Twitter (/1318291564838281216), 19 October 2020] NOTE: The footage actually depicts a group of people re-enacting a scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

The incontinence of Evil aside, it occurs to wonder if, amid the constant stream of accusation, the Church ever takes a moment to sit back, sigh indulgently, raise a glass to Satan, and murmur, “Fuckin’ amateurs.”
