Prince of Darkness sent packing
News just in: Satan, the demonic lord of evil, has been snubbed in an astonishing attack by a top town official. Carolyn Risher, mayor of Inglis village in Florida, issued a proclamation today naming the devil Public Enemy No 1.
“Satan is not now, nor ever again will be, a part of this town,” she says, warning the Prince of Darkness to stay away or risk municipal action (full story).
The official declaration has met a mixed response. “A most extreme intrusion,” says the American Civil Liberties Union, labelling it a gross violation of ethics. Many Inglis residents, however, applaud the anti-devil message.
Satan himself was unavailable for comment.
