Satan is an Archetype of human psychology:
The Manipulator is the man who withholds his specialized knowledge in order to serve his own ends. He is the guru who promises freedom to his followers but never tells his followers the secret, thus keeping them dependent on him. He is the medical specialist who decides which information to share and which to withhold, robbing his patients of the ability to decide their own path. He is the person who charges exorbitantly for the nuggets of information he offers without leading his people to freedom.
The Manipulator is also detached, but not in a healthy way. He doesn’t care if his withholding information has negative consequences for others. In university settings, these are the dissertation or thesis advisors who have the ability to pass or fail a student and, instead of mentoring, run them through the gauntlet and often harm them by delaying graduations and wounding tender psyches with harsh criticism.
The Denying Innocent
The Denying Innocent is the passive side of the Magician. He is the one who wants the power and status of the Magician but doesn’t want the responsibility. The man possessed by the Denying Innocent is one who will learn only enough to tear down others but takes no interest in becoming a specialized person in his own right."

The Pope said last year, anyone who denounces him is controlled by Satan.
What the Pope never answers is why God lets Satan torture his children.
