Folllowing my last post about connecting with Satan several people asked me how I would differentiate between Satan and Lucifer. Do I see them as different entities or perhaps as aspects of the same thing? Well, I can only give a personal view which I warn may differ significantly from the views of other Satanists and Luciferians. Developing our own opinions and theories is central to most of us who use those labels and it is very rare that we all agree.

There are plenty of sites and books which give cultural, religious and historical accounts about how the various traditions associated with Satan and Lucifer developed and have been interpreted over the years.

Actress Roma Downey: ‘I Cast Satan Out of Son of God Movie’

Actress Roma Downey said that it is just like Satan to take center stage and draw attention from the hero of her movie, the son of God.

“I am sure Satan loved being the center of attention for a day,” she said recently, referring to a scandal that erupted over the actor who portrays Satan, and happens to look a lot like President Barack Obama.

“It was all over TV and all over the Internet and that next day, when I was sure everyone would be only talking about Jesus, they were all talking about Satan instead,” Downey said. “I was saddened. It was really disappointing, because it became such a distraction and then it became ugly and people were making such nasty statements.”

The uproar also caused the Obama-like Satan to be cut from the theatrical release of ‘Son of God’, which opens nationwide at the end of February.

“I want the name of Jesus to be on the lips of everyone who sees this movie, so I cast Satan out,” she quipped. “It absolutely gives me great pleasure to tell you that the devil is on the cutting room floor.”
