As I have previously discussed on this blog, Angels and Demons are not necessarily male or female. In fact, the official In Nomine line is that they are neither. This decision by the developers is complicated by the fact that Steve Jackson Games uses some very gendered language when discussing Celestials in general and Superiors in particular.
So how can you do better?
Turns out, a lot of thought has been given to gender neutral equivalents for lots of terms that we use in everyday speech.
Earlier this month The Sun ran an article about a Philippine exorcist who had reported that fake crucifixes with satanic symbols were being given out in that country, and that they were causing nightmares and bad luck.
In light of the recent string of fascist rallies and counter demonstrations that have been taking place in the USA, this seems like a good time to take a break from my “no politics” rule. Sometimes not saying anything at all is itself an act of evil.

Behind the pulpit at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Belgium you’ll find a statue, the Lucifer of Liège, and also the secret of why Satanists love Satan.
Last week we talked about why, contrary to the unsolicited advice most Satanists get, there’s really no downside for Satanists to publicly identify with the devil despite the taboo around it.
But that leaves an important question dangling: Why Satan in the first place?
Sure, Satan represents personal liberty, rational and scientific insight, and defiance in the face of arbitrary authority. Those are good reasons.
But we could invent other symbols for those things if we wanted to. Evidently, nobody wants to. And to understand why, go to St Paul’s.
