What drives the assertion that "demons are evil?" I'm neither religious
or highly educated on the matter, but I've never really thought of them
as such. Other summaries in this thread have pointed out their
neutrality. Can you provide some references?
I've no vested interest here, I just find this discussion interesting,
and I like the names offered by Branden.
Thanks; my apologies if this is considered OT...
