If the Devil Designed A Religion
by John Constantine
For purposes of discussion let’s assume the Devil one day set out to design a religion that would corrupt the souls of mortal men. In the nether regions of fiery perdition the Devil would give a lot of thought to concocting an evil counterpart to the high religions of humanity (Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism and Confucianism).
First of all he would design a religion that would appeal to the baser, more ignoble side of humanity. It would emphasize depravity and moral turpitude.
It would stress lying, deceit and falsehood.
Also, it would emphasize human sacrifice to a false god. Violence, torture, and punishment would be the hallmarks of such a false faith. Killing in name of religious devotion would be advocated.
Then it would appeal to a class of supremacists. Embedded in this religion would some sort of concept of a master race. This religion would spread through the use of extreme violence. Once you joined this religion, you could never leave except upon pain of death. Also, women, children and non-believers would have the status of inferiors.
Next would the creation of an after life based purely on carnal pleasure. Everything forbidden in this mortal life, would be permitted in the next life. Extreme acts of violence would be the only guarantee of salvation. Likewise, the graphic tortures of hell would be vividly portrayed. There would be no guarantee of salvation without the shedding of human blood.
Such a religion would literally unleash a hell upon earth. Perpetual fighting would go on for centuries until all the world submitted to this evil religion.
Also the Devil would create a barbaric legal system with no concept of grace, mercy or forgiveness, only harsh punishment. This code would literally destroy entire civilizations; suffocating any goodness or kindness in the world. The triumph of the Devil’s religion would bring about a thousand years of darkness and perversion.
Furthermore, this malevolent religion would not have any concept of a Golden Rule, nor the notion of the brotherhood of men.
Does such a religion exist? It most certainly does. It is called Islam. It was spawned by the demonic figure of Mohammed. It disguises itself under the thin cloak of a perverted religion.
And it must be opposed by all civilized people before we fall under an odious Dark Age.
