Why do some Christians believe that everything from Pokemon to Obama is satanic?

There are barely any theistic satanists, and most of those who claim to be are actually just black metal kids. Barely anyone has worshipped Satan throughout history. It has just been pagan gods that Christians called Satan because they were different from the Christian God.

(Also, notice that I wrote "some" and not "all". Most Christians don't believe that everything is satanic.)

Pokemon is satanic because it espouses evolution. Obama is satanic because he's waaaayyyy far left and has said some not-so-nice things about Christianity, while praising Islam.

Not that I believe either of the above two statements, of course.

Some Christians? Just like how some atheists think we should murder all followers of the Judeo-Christian faiths?

Wait, what exactly are you disagreeing with?

They believe in this nonsense for the same reason they believe the earth is only 6000 years old and that Noah really managed to fit every single living organism in his ark (including all organisms that have since become extinct.) i.e. they'll believe anything.

Name me any atheist who has ever said this.

Everything that is "From Satan" is "satanic", so, depending on what you think, evolution could be "satanic" and so can whatever Obama is.

I'm pretty sure it's more common for christians to say something like "that's the devil's music!" than it is for atheists to encourage the murder of all theists. Probably millions of times as common.

Because they can't understand it, you always fear what you can't understand, and they also fear Satan so they associate the two. What I find funny is that the early Metal was fairly pro-Christian and the Black Metal and such popped up after they accused it of being Satanic. I guess if you build it they will come

Not even close. He's more moderate than anything.

and has said some not-so-nice things about Christianity, while praising Islam.
What are some of the things he's said?
