God versus Satan??? Commentary
The Texas insanity-defense law requires that a delusional person acting under "orders" from God be judged not guilty by reason of insanity, but that a delusional person acting under "orders" from Satan be considered sane, according to prominent forensic psychiatrist Park Dietz (according to a June USA Today story). Thus, Dietz believed that Andrea Yates (at press time being retried in Houston) knew that drowning her kids upon command of someone "without moral authority" (such as Satan) was wrong and thus that she did not qualify for insanity-law protection. Dietz later concluded the opposite in another Texas child-killing case because God had supposedly assured that mother that her kids would be better off dead. [USA Today, 6-20-06]
It's quite simple. If you believe in God, you must believe in Satan. If you believe in heaven, you must believe in hell. I believe in the power of Satan and I know without a doubt that the things people do are primarily spurred by Satan. They kill in cold blood, they rape, they smoke crack, they shoot heroin and it all comes back to Satan. We give him more power by not recognizing him as the enemy. Any good stratagist from a football coach to a military cheif studies his enemy. He will become aware of his tactics, his moves. We must open our eyes to this and stop sweeping it under the carpet as boogie man mentality. All fanaticism aside...Satan is a liar and will do his best to ruin you and everyone he can get ahold of. It's just that simple!
