Thought for the Day

I was complaining about politics to a relative today, one who is a staunchly fundamentalist Christian. She said that, well, of course things are terrible. By her reckoning, Satan is in charge of everything right now; both through direct guidance and befuddlement of the opposition.

While I was not swayed to her opinion, to wit, the relative omnipotence of the Devil in public affairs, I had to grant its logic. If you're going to stipulate the existence of two [groups of] supernatural beings with inordinate sway over the affairs of mankind, one good and one evil, a person would be hard pressed to come up with a countercase to the opinion that evil was running the show.
