Satan Made Me Do It

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

For all self-loathing wackos who vehemently believe that we (Arabs, Muslims, Egyptians; pick up your slur) are the most retarded people in this world, because of "our" religious tendencies, read this.
The nationwide telephone survey of 1,013 U.S. adults, conducted May 5-7, found that 19% see Satan trying to destroy people's religious faith when sales soar for books, movies and studies that raise doubts about Jesus or the Bible. People who attend church weekly were more likely to believe that

Seems right in time for the debut of Omen, on 6-6-06 ...awww. Reminds me of this old lady on a London bus who swore that Bush was the anti-Christ. "He has 666 on the back of his head" she said as she drew this scared face! Uh..some days!
Of course, I can see people with their hands on their ears screaming "but we don't kill innocent people now do we?". Well, you don't (not in a similar fashion anyhow). But just wait untill somebody form this (growing) 19% decides to 'fight' Satan. Now, they have to be proactive, don't they?!

Moved on!

yup. Fundamentalists of _any_ stripe are scary people that need to be ... well ... disarmed for a start. If you doubt it, read up about the Buddhist sect, Ikko Ikki. Until I came across them, I'd have sworn that you _couldnt_ have fundamentalist Buddhists, but no, wrong again.

I think didn't get your point the right way, but I've something to say, not sure if it touches what you meant or not.
A lot of believer, whoever he is (Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian....or whatever) will regard that the books and movies that brings up doubts about his faith is work of Satan, I think it makes sence. Those who are more open minded will see it in a different way that these stuff expresses somebodies else belief and he is trying to invite others to his belief thinking that he is inviting them for better life or salvation, but will still see that his own personal believe is the righteous or at least more righteous.
I see that both views are acceptable on the basis that both of them will not work on shuting up the voice of others by violence or whatever means.

What Eywitness wrote is 100%correct...but we have also a tendency to simplify subjects to Black Vs white ...God Vs.Satan ..etc.

well...I can see where you're going with that eyewitness.
but, the danger of this kind of thinking is that it attributes a pure sinister nature to what can be an otherwise just a difference in opinion and world views.
It is one thing thinking that a book or a movie is simplistic, bad, or even morally-corrupt...and attributing it to satan.
that makes it 100% evil...which doesnt leave much wiggle room, now does it?
So what do ppl who stand for weak principles, or ideas do? well, easy..label everything they dont approve of, or contradict their thinking 'evil'...or from 'satan'...that will ensure that whatever sense these points of view had will be completly overlooked!
