As Jim Van Bebber's character Ricky says in the Van Bebber-directed short, "My Sweet Satan," "Satan approves."
Now, I really wanted to italicize the word "approves," but my computer is, ummm, not as young as it used to be, and I am still learning this whole comp-tech-savvy biz.

Believing in Satan (in that Judeo-Christian way) means to me believing in Him, that old white man with a long beard whose facial features are obscured by that radioactive glow. (I am interested, however, in checking out R. Crumb's Book of Genesis [sorry, no hyperlink yet; I'm a dumb monkey trying to run before I can walk]

But then there was a coup d'etat, and Tzar Ivan I of Ivanlandia took charge.
