The Sludge Report:
“Satan has his sights on the United States of America!” Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has declared.
“Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has so deeply rooted in the American tradition.”
The former senator from Pennsylvania warned in 2008 how politics and government are falling to Satan.
“This is a spiritual war. And the Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies would have his sights on: a good, decent, powerful, influential country – the United States of America. If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age?”
“He attacks all of us and he attacks all of our institutions.”
Santorum made the provocative comments to students at Ave Maria University in Florida.
Like clockwork, a GOP contender rises in the polls past Mitt Romney and and suddenly the hounds of hell try to drag the contender down.
What’s surprising is this is an attack from the left. When is the last time you saw a Republican getting slammed for being too Christian? I can personally vouch that what Santorum was preaching is standard fundamentalist orthodoxy. Some churches spend more time talking about the Devil than they do about God.
What I want to know is whether this means we can take a closer look at what Mitt Romney believes? And can we go back and revisit Reverend Wright now?
Fair is fair.
