Five Ways Satan Worked in America in 2013 (According to Religious Right)

2013 was a busy year for Satan in America.  While according to right-wing pundits much of the time was spent promoting gay marriage and equality across the nation, multi-tasking Satan had enough time left over to convert Miley Cyrus to Satanism and make certain the country would be fooled into bringing in non-Christian immigrants who would put in place the End Times.

Here are five ways disturbing ways that, according to the Religious Right, Satan worked behind the scenes in America in 2013.

Brought Refugees to America to Impose Demonic, Sharia Law

Cathie Adams, the former head of the Texas Republican Party and current president of the Texas Eagle Forum, told End Times talk radio host Rick Wiles earlier in the year that Satan was orchestrating the end times in America through the immigration reform laws which would lead to  biometric monitoring and an influx of non-Christian immigrants.

She warned that if these immigrants from Muslim nations  would be allowed to come to the United States, the nation would soon realize they were “people who are not here with the best intentions for America,” and would ultimately usher in sharia law and the End Times under Satan’s command.

Let Gays Join the Boy Scouts

In January 2013, the Boy Scouts reversed a long-standing policy allowing gay members, but not leaders, to join their ranks.  The move caused immediately backlash among hardcore conservatives, including Matt Barber of the Liberty Council, who insisted in a blog that the move was the work of the so-called ‘Prince of the Earth’ aka Satan.

“The Prince of the Earth seeks to corrupt and ultimately destroy all that is righteous, honorable and good,” he said.  “It’s little wonder, then, that for years the Boy Scouts have faced a malicious and unrelenting assault at the hands of those ‘who call evil good and good evil.'”

Got Phil Robertson Suspended from Duck Dynasty

After the suspension of Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty, right-wing commentators ran to the celebrity’s aid, calling his anti-gay speech protected and an expression of his Christian beliefs.  During a Dec. 20 broadcast, Bryan Fischer explained that the Robertson controversy actually the work of Satan who is waging war with humanity through the issue of gay rights.  The solution, he explained, was to talk more openly anti-gay topics and to join Robertson and his fight against Satan.

“What we need is about a hundred and fifty million Phil Robertsons out there,” Fischer concluded.

Worked on Plan to Outlaw Christianity and Murder Christians

In a post published by Renew America, Gina Miller also linked gay rights to Satan.  As a result of this ‘homosexual agenda’ she warned, Christianity would soon be outlawed.

“As Christians, we have read the end-times prophecies, and we know the warnings Jesus gave us about how awful things will become in the last days. Satan is working feverishly to fully cement his terrible, earthly rule and bring those hellish days to fruition,” she said.

“The Godless communists (or fascists, if you prefer) are using the homosexual agenda to work toward eradicating Christian opposition to their plans, which are Satan’s plans. If you know your Bible, then you know that Christianity is destined to be outlawed.”

She concluded that the persecution would not stop with the law. “Christians here in America will be in danger of state-sanctioned murder for their beliefs,” Miller stressed, emphasizing that those that side with gay rights were to blame for opening the door to Satan’s demonic influence.

Used Pop Star Miley Cyrus to Demonstrate Demonic Sex Rites

According to right-wing radio host Rick Wiles, Miley Cyrus made a pact with the devil in 2013. “Any wonder who she serves as her soul’s master?” he asked, pointing out that her actions show she is the “poster child” for the “synagogue for Satan.”

Reflecting on her provocative VMA performance, he claimed the true reason behind Cyrus’ action was that she was imitating the Hindu goddess Kali’s sex moves in order to pervert a new generation of unsuspecting teens.

“She’s basically, at least symbolically, showing how to have sex with some Satanic figure,” Wiles concluded about her controversial performance that many, other than Wiles, admitted was influenced by something other than good taste.
