With a few days left in 2020, I’m thinking about a man named Marafi who lived in New Guinea in the early 30s and apparently worshiped Satan. What else?
Through stories like the Satan myth, we can confront our own falliblity. If we don’t, then we condemn ourselves to the one true Hell: denialism.
Satan is the ultimate American “founding father”: a soldier, a revolutionary, a leader, a philosopher, a radical, a reformer, and a patron of equal rights in American for a century before anyone else.
