Doesn't he mean "denounce"

Why would the bible nut renounce the devil, as if he was ever affiliated with him.

Not sure - after all, Seymour is talking to the Devil, and quite clearly being misled and wound up by him. Maybe Seymour should just take his own hint, and ignore the Devil's teasing and wind-ups, and renounce him properly, once and for all. The sad thing is, he doesn't even realise he's being baited.

Well sometimes devil is identified with Lucifer, who was a fallen angel so you could say they were affiliated...i suppose.

I am sure some professor of theology will correct me, that is if Huckabee logs in today.

"renouncing satan" is a big thing in revivals and the like. apparently you need to keep renouncing him even if you never officially signed on with him.

he sneaks in somehow, i guess.

The rest of the comic wouldn't make sense if he did.

Why assume Satan's baiting him?

Isn't that Satan's job, baiting people into evil?

Sure. But he's Satan. Do you really expect him to have much of a work ethic?

Yes?

He's god's creation after all.

I expect he has a work ethic. The ethic is "I don't do it.".

Well, since he has a certain goal in life (baiting people, bringing them into sin etc) and its clear that he does try to make that happen (tempting all of the regular characters, offering whore-bots, even trying to offer Buddha a new cloud once) and clearly puts in a lot of effort.

So I'd rather say his work ethic is "I'll do it, but with as little effort as possible". It's still perfectly clear that he cares, as it were, about his work. I'm sure there are a million more examples as to why he'd be actively baiting other characters, but I can't be bothered looking for them.

Sorry for quibbling, but I'd say that's the funny part. Seymour is entirely unaware that Big D's reverse psychology is, in fact, working.

...and I'm the one that always gets flamed to death for pointing the bleeding obvious out?
