    Coffee reduces blood flow to the brain, it is literal poison that makes you moronic. If some wise Catholic priest, skeptical of papistry but loyal to the church out of a sense of duty deemed it Satanic, he was not wrong. Kant led to Hegel led to Marx. I imagine he was very much like the middle aged women I have to work with who crack coffee jokes every morning, insufferable, low IQ, yet very active in his stupidity, seeking to spread it far and wide with demonic determination.

    The Church teaches that caffeine is fine. It also teaches that smoking and alcohol are fine. It doesn't teach that these things are healthy though.

        Smoke more easily dispersed than powder.

        Cocaine makes you an annoying butthole but pot people literally will not shut up about how spiritually enlightened they are while spending all day in the couch in their pajamas reading Instagram. It's a social poison.

    What OP is referring to is probably a popular myth about Clement VIII which goes something like
    >Coffee aficionados often claim that the spread of its popularity among Catholics is due to Pope Clement VIII's influence. Responding to opposition to coffee as "Satan's drink",[18] with the pope's advisers asking him to denounce the beverage. However, upon tasting coffee, Pope Clement VIII declared: "Why, this Satan's drink is so delicious that it would be a pity to let the infidels have exclusive use of it."[19] Clement allegedly blessed the bean because it appeared better for the people than alcoholic beverages.[20]

    The origin of this story is a book called "Coffee Merchandising" written by William Harrison Ukers in 1930. It was just a fanciful marketing story made up to sell coffee, it doesn't have any actual basis in history.

      I remember reading this story. Is it really just made-up marketing?

    i can't imagine caffeinated sodas + the amount of sugar helps with kids' behavior too...
    remove caffeine from your life for a few months and see your mood change.

    Everything 'new' has been considered Satanic by the Catholic Church at some point.
    Coffee was satanic, tea was satanic, crossbows were satanic, chess was satanic, barn owls were satanic, most non-European crops like potatoes, corn, etc.. Product bar codes.

        From what I remember some parts of the New Testament didn't make it into the New Testament, ?Council of Nicaea? like the Tower or whatever its' called isn't considered canon.
        So, yes; sort of.
