Catholics don’t even worship a male deity, they worship “Mary”, either a human, ghost (necromancy) or a form of Venus.
And if you think the Witch Hunts were motivated by Christianity, of the real, Thou shalt not kill variety, you’d be wrong.
“Open hunting season was declared on women, especially herb gatherers, midwives, widows and spinsters. Women who had no man to supervise them were of course highly suspicious.”
Medicine never recovering as a subject was a coincidence.
“It has been estimated by Dr. Marija Gimbutas, professor of archaeology at the University of California, that as many as 9 million people, overwhelmingly women, were burned or hanged during the witch-craze.”

There were, however, a few pupils who expressed doubts.”
I’ve always found Satanic hallucination stories quite adorable for this very reason.
They literally tell you to do the same shit with summoning circles, exactly the same!
All the demonology books are rip-offs of the medieval manuscript form of the Devil, which is menacing in appearance and essentially the Yidam.
The Eastern dragon resemblance is no coincidence. The Devil doesn’t have horns because of Pan. The Eastern dragon resembles a long snake. Hm, I wonder how that relates to Satan?
It’s basically an imaginary friend telling them whatever they want to hear.
The writers were competing to write the most ridiculous crap that idiots would go on to claim they saw!
They’re such wastes of space it just tells them to kill people, the narcissist’s motive!
The whole thing is an ancient troll!
