He promotes gambling, and is openly trying to buy a man's soul. Is Michael Shackleford the devil?

Don't forget my many attacks on religion and faith as well.

Mike is the kind of guy who doesn't want religion to be a public problem.
He also doesn't want gambling to be one, either.

Isn't there a Bible verse about Satan having many names? The Devil would need a more modern one than "Beelzebub" or "Lucifer", in any case--those sound too quaint for today.

Of course, we've had "George W. Bush" as another name for Satan during the Obama campaign and the administration, but I think that's wearing thin, and we need someone else to blame the world's evils on. Hmmm....

I think there's a strong case for him being the devil. But to be sure, we'd need to see him openly promoting some of the other sins, such as greed and debauchery. Oh wait, this site is about Vegas...
The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.---George Bernard Shaw

The princely sum of... Ten Bucks!

You probably missed this thread: Soul Purchase Contract. Before you click, get ready to laugh your butt off. It's very serious, but also hysterical!
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

...and calls himself a "Wizard"

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizard_(paranormal), Wizards, among other things, practice Satanism.

Joking or not, religious or not, I would never offer to buy or sell a soul.
