Indeed not! It didn't cross my mind that anyone might misinterpret them as such. I was
seized by the potential for parody in the collision between the philosophical stance of
the Religious Tolerance website (which lists Satanism among 'well-established new
religious movements ... unjustly targeted' by anti-cult movements and 'oppressive
governments') and the phenomena of Nazi neopaganism and its Satanist admirers (as
characterised by phrases taken from a Satanist website).

I didn't diss psychics. I diss'd their product and their marketing.
I believe tolerance is about how we treat people, not how we treat ideas.
