Matt Dillahunty of Atheist Experience fame has more than once asked a caller, “How did you determine that God is the good one and Satan is the bad one?” That question was made particularly relevant after I was sent this picture (from, interestingly, Texas):
When I first read this, there was another text message below, which led my screen to cut off just the red-background text naming the church. All I had was the text about Satan being the first to demand equal rights. Of course, combined with the identity of the sender (who would never disparage equal rights doctrine) I interpreted the statement as decidedly pro-Satan. Then, when I scrolled up to see messages above this one I caught the text “Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church” and my certainty was suddenly decimated. Now I’m of the opinion that it’s likely an anti-equal rights message, but, perhaps in part because of my initial perception, I simply can’t convince myself I should be sure.
A classic case of good witch or bad witch.
