I don't associate these at all. Christianity does. The religion of
Christianity has programmed most of society to associate witchcraft with
evil and satanism. The Christian religion has also programmed the
majority of society to hate and fear witchcraft, satanism, atheism, and
everything else that fails to conform to Christian belief. This works
out very well because the majority of society knows nothing about what
Christianity demonizes; and once something is demonized then they don't
want to know anything about it. The average person thinks that satanism
consists of sacrificing animals and wearing a black robe. They think
this because they are programmed. The Church of Satan doesn't do any of
these things. The Church of Satan doesn't even believe in Satan; the
concept is just a figurehead. But you cannot tell the average person
this; satanism has been demonized.

I tend to associate evil with Christianity and Catholicism. The
doctrines of these religions is not evil at all, but their followers
seem to make them that way.
