Has anyone noticed how much Osama bin Laden and Fred Phelps are like some of their respective religions' concepts of Satan? (For those unfamiliar with his reputation, Fred Phelps is the head of the tiny but rabidly anti-homosexual Westboro Baptist Church and behind their websites God Hates Fags and God Hates America.)
The video of bin Laden holding court that was found in Afganistan shows him basking in the adulation of his followers, preening himself. The man just oozes egotism. To the best of my knoweldge muslims see Iblis their concept of Satan is seen as being motivated by egotism. His sin is said to be disobedience to God in refusing to prostrate himself before Adam.
If you visit Phelps' website you can see the pure spite that motivates him. He is an obvious sociopath who gets off on hating everyone. His websites are like freakshows of the psyche. What he reminds me of is a character in C. S. Lewis' Perelandra trilogy. I forget his name but this character becomes a mouthpiece for the Devil and towars the end is reduced to simply communicating spite most of the time
