The Misfit is a symbol of the anti-Christ and is portrayed as such through the inversion of divine characteristics. As pointed by Marion Montgomery, “the devil she presents in her fiction is the devil Christ came to oppose, made articulate in a world largely given to him.” In the Bible, Jesus is a surrounded by little children, whom he loves. The Misfit is bother by little children, even stating, "Watch them children, Bobby Lee," he said. "You know they make me nervous" (O’Connor 642). Michael O. Bellamy emphasizes that this “set of inversion is consistent with the Misfit’s entire personality” (200). When the Misfit is called “a different breed of dog,” this shows the inversion of the word God itself, and “demonology is based on inverting the sacred” (O’Connor 643, Bellamy 200). Moreover, “the Misfit is a self-imposed title,” which is representative of “the figure of that ultimate misfit of Christian orthodoxy, Satan” (Montgomery 186). The emphasis on the Misfit’s alienation from society is show by the symbolism of the true misfit in Christianity. The rejection of Satan by God can be reversed to say that Satan rejects God, and thus the Misfit reject religion.
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis is a book of thirty –one letters in which a retired, senior demon named Screwtape coaches his newly educated nephew, Wormwood. Wormwood is quite troubled when it comes to tempting his “patient.” Nevertheless, he need not fear because faithful uncle Screwtape has offered his services. A unique character featured in the letters is, “The Enemy.” This character refers to God, the natural enemy of Satan. Of course Satan is referred to as “Our Lord.” In the letters, and Wormwood and Screwtape try their very best to please Satan and bring him glory. Although the book is written from the demons’ perspective, Lewis naturally uses it to highlight important truths of the Christian faith.

Imagine if instead of going to school you went to the Hitler Youth. The Hitler Youth was as important as regular school was. The Hitler Youth was Hitler's belief of what people should be: “The weak must be chiselled away. I want young men and women who can suffer pain. A young German must be as swift as a greyhound, as tough as leather, and as hard as Krupp’s steel.” Hitler was teaching the youth what he thought was right.

We were not the club that got talked about openly, we were not the club that teachers voiced their love of; in fact, we were the club that students were afraid to tell their parents they were a part of. The people in this club had been taught to hide themselves, to make fun of themselves, to hate themselves and to never allow people to truly know who they were inside. These were the people who got talked about in the hallways and made fun of during
Wicca, Shamanism, Ásatrú, Neo-Druidsm, Celtic, Native American, you know about all of them, or if not a few, but there is a path that combines them all.
As I approach the end of my high school career, I start thinking if I am prepared and ready to face the next step in my life. College is known to test a man’s responsibility in order to prepare him to face the world alone. Jesuit High School has changed my life throughout the years I have attended the school. Jesuit has prepared me for college and taught me how to become a more responsible man. When I was thinking of where I should apply to high school, Jesuit was not my first option; however, coming from a family of Jesuit alumni, I knew it was the only school for me. Throughout my earlier years at Jesuit, I struggled and was miserable due to the overwhelming work and rules I was required to follow. However, I soon realized what the school was about in its mission in turning its students into men for others. I have found that Jesuit High School has transformed me educationally, has made me a more responsible man, and has taught me to be a man for others.
by Anton Szandor LaVey, who was as the High Priest at that time. The Church foundation is based on LaVey’s teachings and the many books he wrote; such as, The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals and later defined by current leader Peter H.Gilmore in(Gilmore About the Organization **need citation**);“In modern parlance, the Church of Satan may be called a user-driven organization. Members are involved and advanced exactly as their own desires, abilities and accomplishments dictate. Unlike other organizations, this church does not hold services, meetings or activities. The way it works is a“new member comes to the organization, ideally, with his own goals and plans for achieving them; he presents them to us and is directed in the way that would be most mutually beneficial” (Gilmore About the Organization). This church does not care about “putting up a show” as they call it or being visible and accepted in society. They do not enforce rules such as dress code restrictions on what a person may wear or conduct as to how to behave unto the worshipping Satanist. Moreover, Satanists do not believe in supernatural beings, gods, the soul or any form of afterlife (Gilmore Information for Chaplains**need citation**). Therefore, they do not worship Satan also known as the devil or perform any sacrifices as many people may believe that they do. Gilmore (Gilmore Fundamental Beliefs**need citation**) states, “Our position is to be

"In hell, everyone is seated at a banquet table full of wonderful food, but the only implement they have to use are spoons that are three feet long. The residents of Hell spend eternity trying to feed themselves with these awkward spoons, and never get a bite to eat. In heaven, everyone is also seated at a banquet table full of wonderful food, and the only implement they have are also spoons that are three feet long. The residents of Heaven, however, get all the wonderful food that they can eat because instead of awkwardly struggling to feed themselves, they feed each other.“- Anonymous
Satan has a relationship with his “evil” followers much like a king to his noble subjects (or God to his followers). This is especially evident in lines 436-459, when Satan appears like a commoner until he ascends his throne and is suddenly clad in glory. The hundreds of thousands of demons are all condensed around the capital of Hell, waiting with bated breath for “their great adventurer from the search / of foreign worlds,” “whom they wished beheld, /
Satan is so high in his own esteem; he cannot bear to be a servant and must be a leader, as he says in Book I, “Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heav’n” (line 263).
