Superior-General of the Society of Jesus: The "devil" doesn't exist, just a mental construction to symbolize "evil"
From Spanish daily El Mundo, via the Catholic Herald:
In an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Fr Arturo Sosa said: "Christians believe that we are made in the image and likeness of God, and God is free, but He always chooses to do good because He is all goodness.
"We have formed symbolic figures such as the devil to express evil. Social conditioning can also represent this figure, since there are people who act [in an evil way] because they are in an environment where it is difficult to act to the contrary."
How long till the Society of Jesus change their name to "Society of Satan"? Far better to use the name of a merely "symbolic" figure than to continuously offend the Most Holy Name of God Incarnate, right?...
