Satanists are unhappy that John Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Devil.

On Thursday, a spokesperson for the Satanic Temple said in an interview for The Friendly Atheists that Satanists want nothing to do with the Republican candidate.

“Cruz’s failures of reason, compassion, decency, and humanity are products of his Christian pandering, if not an actual Christian faith,” Lucien Graves said. “It grows tedious when pedophile priests and loathsome politicians are conveniently dismissed as Satanic, even as they spew biblical verse and prostrate themselves before the cross, recruiting the Christian faithful.”

“Satanists will have nothing to do with any of them.”

On Wednesday, Boehner said that he thought the senator from Texas was “Lucifer in the flesh.”

“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends,” Boehner said. “I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

Cruz later responded by linking Boehner to Donald Trump.

“He allowed his inner Trump to come out,” Cruz said.
