Many people are truly bothered by Satanic temptation or by demonic possession.

"The Devil made me do it.", is an excuse frequently offered by the criminal.

While reading a religious tract, Reverend Clayton Bailey developed the concept of fighting crime through "Psychic Immunization". According to his theory, psychologically "charged" sculptural forms and symbols create an "immune response" in the viewer. They stimulate the production of psychic antibodies in the mind, thus protecting the viewer from further possession or temptation by Satan.

"Fight Satan" is a coin-operated source of psychic immunity. When you insert a coin, it shows a scene of burning Bibles, and emits demonic laughter and blood curdling screams. Thus the viewer is given a "psychic inoculation".

The psycho-immune response is believed to be greater when you pay for the experience. The more money you put into the coin slot, the more effective the treatment.

Jenner's inoculation with weakened smallpox virus caused the recipient to create antibodies against more serious infection by the disease. Religious and satanic symbols entering the eyes protect the viewer against invasion by Satan in the same way as a conventional inoculation.
