  1. You got me with that Onion article – Local conservative Christian offended by implication that Satan is gay. It’s spot on.

    “Satan embraces sin, but not that sin. He has a wife, you know, and three young demonic children. And sure, he tempted Christ, but never in a sexual way. Satan simply couldn’t be any straighter.”
