The French … do not believe in the unity of the Lord of Heaven and Earth … but have abandoned all religion …. They assert … that all men are equal in humanity, and alike in being men; none has any superiority or merit over any other, and every one disposes of his soul and arranges his life. In this vain belief and preposterous opinion, they have erected new principles and set new laws, and established what Satan has whispered to them and destroyed the bases of religion…. With lying books and meretricious falsehoods they address themselves to every group and say, “We belong to you, to your religion, and to your community” …They are united under the banner of Satan. Ahmad Pasha al Jazzar

And I tell you the last is the worst of them all. This is Satan in human form. Gregor Strasser
… negotiating with America is like shaking hands with Satan, and dancing with wolves, because the Americans are interested in negotiations for negotiations' sake....By negotiating with us, they are trying to intimidate the world of Islam and the Islamic movements, saying: "Even Islamic Iran, which you follow and which serves as your model, eventually had no choice but to get along with us.” Hossein Shariatmadari
Some of the defendants say that dictatorship can be good if there is a good dictator. But I say that a man cannot stay good if he becomes a dictator.

Do not now let them sacrifice animals to the Devil, but to the praise of God kill animals for their own eating….

When the public mind first took its bent towards science, I, for one, foresaw that the Devil would soon be to pay with our cherished ideas. Under the plea of exercising some of the highest faculties of human nature, these scientific descendentalists have exclusively devoted themselves to the lowest objects of human concern…. There isn't a statesman, or philanthropist, or poet, or hero, or saint in the land, sir, that they would condescend to look at, when engaged in exploring the remains of some ignorant ass of the Stone Period. Edwin Percy Whipple
If I were designing a phony religion, I'd surely include a version of this little gem -- but I'd have a hard time saying it with a straight face:, If anybody ever raises questions of objections about our religion that you cannot answer, that person is almost certainly Satan. In fact, the more reasonable the person is, the more eager to engage you in open-minded and congenial discussion, the more sure you can be that you're talking to Satan in disguise! Turn away! Do not listen! It's a trap!, What is particularly cute about this trick is that it is a perfect "wild card," so lacking in content that any sect or creed or conspiracy can use it effectively. Communist cells can be warned that any criticism they encounter is almost sure to be the work of FBI infiltrators in disguise, and radical feminist discussion groups can squelch any unanswerable criticism by declaring it to be phallocentric propaganda being unwittingly spread by a brainwashed dupe of the evil patriarchy, and so forth. This all-purpose loyalty-enforcer is paranoia in a pill, sure to keep the critics muted if not silent. Daniel Dennett
Wherever God erects a house of prayer, The Devil always builds a chapel there; And 'twill be found, upon examination, The latter has the largest congregation. Daniel Defoe
In the cloning debate to come, the political lines will not be drawn cleanly. And those who we presuppose would be the most fearful of the concept of human cloning, may themselves be split into those who would want clones to be born if a woman were pregnant with the clone and those who would see a clone as an Anti-Christ or other evil that must be destroyed. Lewis D. Eigen

… negotiating with America is like shaking hands with Satan, and dancing with wolves, because the Americans are interested in negotiations for negotiations' sake....By negotiating with us, they are trying to intimidate the world of Islam and the Islamic movements, saying: "Even Islamic Iran, which you follow and which serves as your model, eventually had no choice but to get along with us.” Hossein Shariatmadari
… satanic music is driven by marijuana, and marijuana smoking by white women makes them want to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and others. It is a drug that causes insanity, criminality, and death — the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind. Harry J. Anslinger
One of my main intentions was to destroy the legend of the greatness of evil, of the demonic force. Hannah Arendt
There will always be days when we have to race to catch up to events we did not foresee, not because somebody is asleep at the switch, but because what’s going on is so complicated. George Tenet

I think these things [firearms] were invented by Satan himself, for they can’t be defended against with [ordinary] weapons and fists. All human strength vanishes when confronted with firearms. A man is dead before he sees what’s coming.. Martin Luther
The Devil’s Food. Anonymous
Halloween is Satan’s night. It’s the night for the devil. Most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent... Pat Robertson
Compelling large banks to hold more capital reduces their risk of failure, but as the last financial crisis [the Meltdown of 2008] demonstrated, during a wide-spread panic, investors and lenders lose all faith in the values banks have assigned to their assets, and many mistrust the banks that claim to have enough capital. Robert E. Litan
The American Colonies need waste people…. they are ready to eat up one another Richard Hakluyt
[The devil] al­ways sends er­rors into the world in pairs—pairs of op­posites. And he al­ways en­cour­ages us to spend a lot of time think­ing about which is the worse. . . . He re­lies on your ex­tra dis­like of the one er­ror to draw you grad­u­ally into the op­po­site one. But do not let us be fooled. We have to keep our eyes on the goal and go straight through be­tween both er­rors. We have no other con­cern than that with ei­ther of them. C. S. Lewis
To advance his administration's agenda with its protectionism and cultural nationalism, Donald Trump needs to spread the notion that the polyglot metropolis is a dangerous failure. Will Wilkenson

The 2016 Presidential Campaign had the most bizarre and unusual occurrences in all my years of covering politics, I have never seen so much that was unique and unheard of. My favorite one was when the Republican Speaker of the House referred to the Republican Senator Ted Cruz, the "Devil Incarnate". And then the Society of Satan Worshippers put out a Press Release denying it. Bob Schieffer
