Rick Santorum: Satan is Systematically Destroying America

Via the Daily Beast:

In 2008, then-Senator Rick Santorum gave a speech at Ave Maria University where he declared “Satan has his sights on the U.S. ” “Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those voices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has deeply rooted in the American tradition,” Santorum said. Santorum defended the comments, saying they were “not relevant” to this campaign. But within hours of the speech surfacing, Rush Limbaugh said Santorum’s comments were “not the kind of stuff you hear a presidential candidate saying,” and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — a moderate Republican — said “anything you say as a presidential candidate is relevant.”

    Could frothy possibly be more out of touch with reality? Oh totally, sensuality is destroying America.

    if Santorum wins the nomination, this next election will be a referendum on whether to move forward and progress as a society, or go backwards and hide in caves, living in fear of everything. There seem to be plenty of people who want, for whatever twisted reason, to do exactly that.

      Obama represents moving society forward? How so?

      • He doesn’t – he represents the status quo. But Santorum represents something else entirely: a truly sincere fundamentalist Christian, with all that term implies (pro-life, anti-gay marriage or “pro-family,” if that suits you better, aggressive foreign policy, against cloning and stem-cell research, a believer in intelligent design, etc.).  Whether he would actually govern that way on the off chance he wins the nomination and the Presidency remains to be seen.

          Don’t forget essentially against all forms of environmental protection.

        • Santorum can’t win. For same reason glen beck was cancelled, too extreme too retarded. You cant go full retard. Course, the GOP could always steal the election.

        my comment is about the threat of theocracy, not a defense of Obama. But I see him as more benign than a full-blown theocrat, or a sexual inquisitor straight from A Handmaids Tale, and everytime Santorum opens his mouth I think of that novel.

        If you’re wounded in a knife fight, would you rather lose an ear, or a vital organ?

    Last time I checked it was psychotic religious fool, corrupt politicians, and greedy CEO’s like this idiot that were destroying this country. HAIL SATAN!

    Santorum is just one letter or so off from “Satan.” And “Satan” is systematically destroying America. So Santorum is systematically destroying America. Think about it.

    And Lo I Holdest It So That It Is A Fancy Fist With Joy.

  6. I thought it was people systemically destroying the U.S.  

  7. accusing others of what you do is called projection

  8. Whatever.
    I’m sure that Satan is saying the same thing about Santorum and his fundamentalist cronies!

  9. Prove it, oh wait, you can’t. THE END. Jeesh. People who believe this shit are so….. Wow. If anything is destroying America, it’s the metric fucktons of STUPID.

  10. I don’t believe in Satan, but I think conservative christians come pretty close IMO.

  11. Funny how he seems to be able to recognize the acts of Satan but only when those acts are commited by Liberals and Democrats but yet his magic SatanDar doesn’t go off around Newt the adulterer or any of the scat-loving Fox and Fiends.
