Damage Control: Jesuit Spokesman says Superior’s Denial of Satan was Taken out of Context

In a defense that was as predictable as it is unoriginal, a spokesman for the Superior General of the Jesuits, “Fr.” Arturo Sosa, has claimed that the chief Jesuit’s recent comments denying the existence of Satan as a real fallen angel have been — just guess! — taken out of context.

The Novus Ordo paper Catholic Herald has the story:

A spokesman for the Jesuit superior general has said his comments on the Devil must be read in context.

The superior general, Fr Arturo Sosa Abascal, told El Mundo last week: “We have formed symbolic figures such as the Devil to express evil.”

A spokesman for Fr Sosa told the Catholic Herald that the phrase “We have formed” should not be taken out of context.
