  • Yeah that guy needs some serious PR campaigning done.
  • Sure, he's right up there with the Great Pumpkin and Nancy Drew in my book. No reason to fault a guy for being fictional.
  • You don't respect evil.
  • Absolutely none.
  • he is a master at all his ploys, hes had decades to perfect his art,plays people like pawns, but alas....he loses in the end.
  • He does his job well!Without Him we would have no idea of all that is good in this creation.You need the color black to qualify white!
  • YEp,about as mutch as respect for the Tooth fairy,easterbunny,to name a few its ballony Bs ,and in his case,satan- invented to strike fear,thus control over people,but if you get an old blacksabith record play it backwards and....lol.
  • Yes, I have the utmost respect towards Lord Satan. (Oh, and let's not fight over this @_@ I'm just answering your question :S) Hail Satan
  • Yeah, I guess. He didn't remain subservient to God in order to follow his own dreams. Hooray!
  • In a sense. I respect his ability to mislead people, same as I have respect a rattlesnake's ability to harm. That is MY opinion. But there are two sides to a coin and if people choose to follow Satan, that is their right and if I don't respect their rights, I can't expect them to respect mine.
  • I have COMPLETE respect for Lord Satan! I have given my soul freely and enthusiastically to Him (This is NOT a joke!!) and I am PROUD to openly and publicly admit it!
  • I have the same amount of "respect" for Satan, as I do for the Easter Bunny, or any other fictional character.
  • Even though satan is a powerful being I have absolutely no respect for him nor do I fear him.
  • As long as he doesn't interfere with my life, I won't sic God on him. +5
  • Satan is to god as are the Washington Generals to the Harlem Globetrotters. Satan is there to make god look good.
  • Yes, I respect Satin, and I have some lovely sheets and pillowcases in a deep maroon Satin.
  • LMAO!!!! What a ridiculous question. Yea, maybe if I was a thirteen year old "satanist" with a pentagram neclace and shops at hottopic for pants with chains!!
  • None what-so-ever
  • About as much respect for Satan as for God.
  • I respect him as an antagonist in a fictional story the same way I respect the Borg in Star Trek.
  • in my twisted perspective of thought, God is the representative of the collective Good, and Satan is the representative of the collective Evil. I have tremendous respect for both, because i know how easily one can be drawn from one side to the other.
  • No, I have no respect for anything evil.
  • I believe that neither he or his counterpart exist.If they did I would question the compassion of god to send him away for,I guess,an argument between them.Then they both have ego problems.I guess not unlike the Roman,Greek,and Egyptian gods of old.
  • Umm.....well...I'm still debating if either exists. However I do have a little respect for him, because I believe as the story goes, he's the only one that had the gall to stand up to God.
  • He had a pretty good playoff performance.
  • To tell you the truth (and forgive me God if this is blasphemy) I feel sorry for satan. He had it all, except he couldn't be human. What more could you want? I do not respect satan because he is against my God and is attacking my brothers and sisters. He is the cause of all that is wrong in our world. That includes war, every sickness known to mankind, every abuse of every kind, every hurt against any human being from Adam to now. He lost the battle when Jesus Christ rose from the dead! I do not have to prove that. I believe it and that is all that matters to me. I must say though that it will be sad to see so many potentially good people go down with him at the end. May God bless you.
  • Respect - yes. Love - no. But wait, on second thought. What would Jesus do? I guess I can love satan even with his flaws.
  • Well, one could argue that in the Christian creation myth, he endowed mankind with knowledge and self-awareness, which I believe is what truly separates man from animal. He became decidedly more evil after that though, so any respect was quickly lost.
  • Ignoring the fact that he's a fictional character in a fantasy book, yes. He's got a sh*tty job, but someone's got to do it. He's God's bouncer, standing at the door and making sure undesirables don't get into heaven. If they didn't include Revelation in the Bible back when they were voting on its contents, that's how he'd be seen today. Instead his entire image is based on the ramblings of a hermit high on Patmos mushrooms.
  • Yes, I do, when I think about what he does. Satan is like the Grim Reaper, in that he performs a vital function, and yet people only see the bad side. Satan represents chaos, without which life could not evolve. The world needs chaos, as it does death, war, and creativity. I don't worship him, but I do respect him, even if it is the way you respect a big, vicious dog.
  • It wouldn't let my post this as a comment, so I just made it an answer! sorry :) Ok I wasn't trying to be arrogant or make anybody believe anything that I believe. I honestly was a little confused by your reply, and so I asked for some clarification. I have no intrest in trying to get a person I do not know on the internet with any sarcasm, and I have no intrest in arguing with them either. Honestly, I have a lot of problems in the real world I am trying to deal with. I also have no intrest in how long you have been on answerbag, since that is irrelivant to any thing. If you would like to tell me in a dignified manner what other answers I have given (including this one) have offended you and why, I would be glad to have a discussion with you. If not, then have a good day and god bless
  • Neither more nor less than I have for the god character
  • None at all. He is an arrogant lying murderer, who has tricked mankind into thinking he has a point. There is no human alive who is as nasty as him.
  • Less than for Santa Claus, but more than for the Tooth Fairy.
  • It's been said before by many AB'ers on here, but It's my opinion too: I respect him as much as any other fictional character. Maybe a little less, being the prince of darkness and all, ya know?
  • why? the dude tries making our lifes miserable!why would you respect satan
  • He's got a wicked humour, and some very sexy temptations...
  • Yes, he has as many people crapping their pants as God does.
  • No I do not respect satan nor do I fear him. But vigilance is always necessary when dealing with the adversary.
  • I have plenty of good, solid respect for Satan...much more than for the christian "god" and its bastard son jesus.
  • not respect,but a touch of fear when he enters my mind but i believe those just as fierce and brutal angels they got my back covered and then theres still the big man on my side,assuming i make that side of the fence.peace
  • Yeah. He's fiction, but he did revolt against absolute tyranny. You go, dude!
  • No. That would be like respecting Hitler, Mao, Stalin, the list goes on. Oh, he's real alright, as these are some of the humans he has influenced.
  • I respect Satan the most out of all Gods.
  • One BIG 0..:)
  • I can't respect him because he is the father of all lies.
  • As a literary character? Yes. (I don't believe in Satan, just fyi.) Satan is an interesting character much maligned for doing what most of us would expect any "hero" to do. Somehow, the hero and the villain roles become reversed when it is a religious text. Satan was created to be subservient to Yahweh. He was created for a life (eternity) of unquestioning obedience and praise. We call that slavery. He rebelled. In any other story, this action would be widely considered worthy of praise. Satan is often said to be the serpent in the Garden of Eden. He brings truth and knowledge to the humans. Let's be frank. Yahweh created the humans in a state of ignorance and dependence. He ordered them specifically not to have knowledge. If they ate of the tree on THAT DAY they would surely die. Satan (the serpent) disagrees He says that the fruit brings knowledge, and that they will not die. What happens? They eat the fruit and receive knowledge. Do they die on that day? No. In fact, Adam lives 800 YEARS after the birth of Seth, who is not yet even born in the story of The Fall. You may say that they were immortal and wouldn't have otherwise died, but why then is the Tree of Life so key? At any rate, they did not die on that day, as Yahweh said. Satan (the serpent) is the only character in the story who doesn't lie. He is the key to knowledge for humans. Yet, He is said to be the villain. I certainly admire someone who does not submit to eternal slavery and helped humans achieve knowledge. Note that all of this is according to Christian dogma. Other religions (most notably Judaism) have other beliefs regarding Satan.
