Does it annoy you when people blame the devil for things that may go wrong in life?

Sometime things in life just happen without no cause, but most people can’t seem to understand that and want to blame the boogeyman and say things like,” He’s just trying to get you to stray.” I mean I’ve never let myself allow my imagination to stretch that far to blame an entity for anything. I take responsibility of me and just do the best I can to move passed things that just happens in life.

They like to blame the devil for the bad in their life and thank god for the good.

Such people merely amuse me with their stupidity.

Why would delusions that barely impact me impact my mood?

I blame Loki. The only true god. If he would leave us alone, we would be just fine.

It certainly does Emerald; just as much as when people say things like "thank god he's alive" or thank god she was not killed in the car accident", (even though five other people were killed in the same accident) there are a thousand similar mindless exclamations used by the devout, or just plain unthinking.

Ugh! Everything you said is on point.

Yes, usually when things go wrong it's because a person fucked up. Leave my lord out of it!

Just as bad as people blaming God for all the good things.

Ikr. It really burns me up when these patients give absolutely no credit to the doctors who made it possible for them.

Doesn’t bother me! It’s no different from when I hear them thanking god for when something goes right. 😐

Better blame the devil (who is out of reach) than blame the Jews or some other traditional scapegoats...

I think the Devil got a bum deal right from the get-go, and his Dad propagated some seriously bad press about him, so he keeps getting blamed and has no way to defend himself. I'll bet he wasn't such a bad guy, but he's probably pretty pissed off now.
...ya know... if he existed.

IKR! If he actually existed, I don’t think he was really a bad guy, considering how many people god killed compared to Satan and he only did it cause god gave him the permission to.

@EmeraldJewel Right. Raw Deal for Satan. There was a great graphic novel by Piranha Press: Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children => Happy Birthday To Hell.
Basically it's Satan trying to make Hell less crappy for the souls that get sent there. He bitches a bit about god and his cloven hooves, but mostly he's just trying to be cheerful and make the best of the situation.
I read it years ago and have always used it as my "go to" for Satan.

It's just a need to blame someone other than themselves. They also justify an action by saying god told me to do it.

I don't take it literally. This guy is saying the scale is the devil! It just tells you that you need to lose more weight or haven't lost enough. Go by the pants that can now fit you, and how many pushups you can do compared to before. So, obviously, the scale isn't literally the 😈. It's just trying to make a point that the scale can be misleading, etc.

They feel a need to blame someone. At least Beelzebub doesn't get hauled into court when an individual does something that blows up in their face.

If the alternative is someone blaming me instead, I will let the Devil take the rap.

BIGGEST copout to avoiding responsibility and coming to terms with life's randomness!

If we have no God then there cannot be a devil.
