Satanist Claims Discrimination Against His Stupid Religion

In a lawsuit filed against the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Department in Montana, Jason Paul Indreland (pictured here wearing a douche patch on his chin) claims his religious rights were violated while he was in jail on felony drug possession charges. He was busted for having fifteen grams of meth, which is absurd since drug possession shouldn’t be a crime in the first place. But even more absurd is the fact that Indreland says he’s a practicing Satanist who was ridiculed, denied access to religious material, and had a protective medallion stolen. Not that there aren’t equally stupid religions (I’m looking at you, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), but Satanism? The very idea of Satan comes from Hebrew scripture, so you necessarily have to believe that crap to believe in Mr. Horny Forks. Satanism is nonsense based on nonsense and is only practiced by fans of ironic humor and assholes. Indreland is probably the latter, considering he has prior convictions for writing bad checks and theft. Still, I suppose he has as much a right to the silly books he bought in Barnes & Noble’s New Age section as anyone else does to a Bible. I’m just not sure he deserves the $10 million dollars he wants from the county, as he’ll probably just spend it all on candles and bullshit. More details here.
