Catholic Bishop: “No Purpose” in Responsibility for Crimes

Satan represents responsibility to the responsible—perhaps one of the reasons Satanism ought indeed be feared by Christianity and its ilk? No magic words to make personal responsibility go away (Priests and Absolution), and no vicarious human sacrifice (Jesus and Redemption), just reality and accountability.
