This reminds me of Christian apologetic and so called "respected theologian" Billy lame Craig's twisted logic and morality on defending the slaughter of children as told in the bible. According to Lane it was A OK to mass slaughter babies.
An absolute perfect example of the deranged mindset of the religious. With their insane moral compass, no matter how immoral an act, god can fix everything and make it accceptable.
I'm new to atheism so please don't shoot me down for this if I am on a wrong tangent, correct me if you feel the need.
But with god, there is always a case of you can't have one without the other, right. There can't be light without dark and stuff so with god allowing satan to exist, isnt that because without an Evil Satan, there cant be a Good God. You can't be good if there is no bad - otherwise you just are. So for God to be deemed good, he needed to create evil. Everything has an opposite, even god. Therefore, god doesn't love Satan because he allows him to exist, he allows him to exist because without Satan, God isn't really anything important at all. So yes, I agree the argument "god loves satan so much that he allows him to be Satan" is complete toss.
Language requires a duality for there to be an understanding of what is being said. It's as much what you are not say as what you said. So we have right and wrong, good and bad, god and the devil. Adam and Eve ate of the tree of knowledge and came to know good and evil.
Religion requires evil to exist and preachers make a living promoting that you are evil so you will pay to feel better.
