Some of Iceland’s pro-Satan faction have taken exception with artist Snorri Ásmundsson’s assertion that “Satanic energy” surrounds the Progressives, contending that Satan is too good for the party.
DV reports that preparations are underway for this year’s Anti-Christian Festival, to be held on the Winter Solstice (which this year falls on December 21). The festival was originally started in 2000, as a direct response to the controversial Christian Festival, which sparked criticism for bloated costs and snarling traffic.
Some of the organisers had an opinion on recent remarks made by Snorri Ásmundsson about the Progressive Party.
“Some Satanic energy surrounds the Progressive Party,” he said, explaining his latest installation, The Progressive Party Member. “It’s not really a charitable energy, but rather something corrupt to the bone, like a disease.”
To this, the Anti-Christian Festival organisers object, on the grounds that Satan is too good for the Progressives.
“Satanic energy would be wasted on those people,” said one. “Satan is life, light and pleasure. Unlike the Progressive Party.”
