Look, I understand that you have to work with what you’re given. But if you think that this is a good counter-argument to Ted Cruz (accurately!) pointing out that pro-abortion protesters were chanting “Hail, Satan”…
Lucien Greaves, communications director of the Satanic Temple, says Cruz’s comments oversimplify the issue by trying to inject religion into the abortion debate. Although pro-abortion-rights protesters did indeed chant “Hail Satan” at a rally outside the Texas Capitol, it was to combat antiabortion protesters who were singing “Amazing Grace.”
And…National Journal wants to tell you why it’s perfectly fine to chant “Hail Satan” at a pro-life rally. For real. http://t.co/dQJvrz9pRT

PS: As a good general rule of thumb in American politics, when one side is singing “Amazing Grace” and the other side is chanting Hail Satan, be on the side that’s singing the hymn. …wait, I have to write this out?
