Sympathy for the Devil in Witchcraft?

Upon going through my files, I found this article written by Frater Barrabbas Tiresius, the original of which can be found here.  The article discusses what seems to be an ever-increasing "debate" as to whether the "Satan" or "the devil" can actually be linked to the "Horned God" more traditionally found within initiatory Wytchcraft (ie, Wicca).

For me personally, the two are completely different concepts - however, if one is talking about "Satan", as in Luciferian Craft, or "the devil" as in Traditional Craft, then my understanding is actually yes.  This is because, as far as I am aware, the concepts of the latter as opposed to the more common Christianised concept, is actually different.
