Santorum 2008: America is under attack from Satan
Hotair ^ | today | Allahpundit

Posted on 02/21/2012 4:30:22 PM PST by lilyfreeper

“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.”… “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.”

Oh no... it’s evidence of Santorum clinging to his Bible... were there guns anywhere within a 3 mile radius?

From the great movie "The Usual Suspects":

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist.

Yeah, and he was one of the few “conservatives” to decry the pro-sodomy Supreme Court decision. He’ll never get to be Obama’s best buddy that way.

Satan has his sights on all of us. American is not singled out.

Our religious liberty is part of American’s greatness, this is what should be talked about.

Santorum is a Catholic and he was giving a speech to a Catholic University. What is the problem? Is it sanctimonious to preach in church what your Church believes?

It has been my experience that those people who don’t believe in Satan share many of the same behavior patterns as the Devil. Sadly too many people who believe in Satan do too.

So the MSM and Drudge have a problem with a Catholic giving a speech citing Satan at a CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY. Does anyone put into context anything anymore? There is evil in this world and his use of Satan here is appropriate.

Thanks for posting that song--I had never heard it before.

Martin Luther's 1529 opus Ein' Feste Burg ist Unser Gott (a mighty fortress--literally, a strong castle--is our God) makes essentially the same point.

Many people have convinced themselves that there is no evil and no purveyor of evil, Satan. The Bible describes this condition as being “spiritually dead.”

The majority of Americans still identify as Christian, even if they are not Christian in truth. While I do not agree with his catholicism, what he said about Satan attacking America is a truth as plain as the nose on your face to most of us--especially us conservatives.

God said it, that settles it, whether I believe it or not does not change the truth. This election is a battle of good versus evil. These are the only two powers on this earth. Jesus said he who is not for me is against me. It is time to undress the politics and choose ye this day whom ye will serve.

If we will not stand up for our God given liberties, if we will not stand up for the sanctity of life, then by default we are standing up for tyranny and death.

I believe it was Thomas Paine whe said “I know not what path others may choose, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”

There is no middle ground, there can be no compromise. Our liberties are God given and expressed succinctly in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. We must support candidates that believe in these truths and will honor them no matter the cost. To do otherwise is to destroy our future and betray our past.

One cannot serve two masters, Satan is real, So is God, God wins in the end, praise Jesus.

That’s not the way it works.

Taking note of the fact that Satan is hard at work does not relieve one of the responsibility for fighting evil.

I think we know there is evil in the world. If I need spiritual guidance I will go to my clergy. I have no interest in his opinion of religion, or his interpretation of satan in America. The bible also has an opinion of those who use prayer, God and religion for their own personal gain.

Santormania? Santorumsanity?

It's spelled SANTORUM, Miss n00bie Lily, ok?

I'm a Newt supporter, but I agree with and fully support Santorum's comments in this matter.

Christians who believe in God's Word need read only a few passages of Scripture to understand that there IS a Devil, who contends for our eternal souls, the very same Devil who tempted Jesus Christ when He walked upon the Earth, the same Devil who will manifest himself in human form in the end times as described in the prophetic books of the Bible in an attempt to deceive and capture as many lost souls as possible.

When Jesus walked among men, He spent more time teaching and preaching about the necessity to AVOID Hell (and by extension the Devil) than any other topic. That is because He knew from personal experience that the Devil is real (and pardon me while I bitchslap Romney and his fellow Mormons when I say that Lucifer was NEVER the 'brother' of Christ).

So what Rick Santorum said is absolutely in line with Scripture, and whether he said it in 2008 is not the issue, he is to be commended for having the spiritual guts to say it at all.

The media has opened up a can of worms on Santorum, and the lid will NEVER be put back on. They will paint him as an extremist and a nut and that will be IT.

I just wish NONE of this had ever started ...but it did ...and Obamacare is what ushered it in.

We all need to keep our focus on defeating him and defeating this horrible legislation ...not getting in arguments about the Devil. It’s just ridiculous!!!

Maybe you need to check the story a little more closely. This was not a campaign speech. This was a speech at a private Catholic university back in '08--four years ago, this August.

This was dug up by the libtards who are so very threatened by a conservative man of principle running for President.

Attention ALL Americans, Free Republic members, Republicans and Tea Party Conservatives …



WHY is everyone "whining" about Ricky Santorum's "clearly" TRUE remark ?



WHY did Rush Limbaugh have to (again) LEAP to poor Rickey's Defense today ... and "explain" just what Rickey really meant by this remark ?


WHY is Obama, Axelrod, Schummer Beorge Bush (41) and Willard Romney ... ALL doing the "ROTFLMAO" dance with champagne glasses ?


================================


Because Little Ricky (still the LOW-TESTOSTERONE --Not-Ready-For-Prime-Time Pennslyvannia "Christian Boy") ...


is NOT READY for "Battle" ... Like David was just before He killed Goliath (with Extreme Prejudice) ...


================================


Little Ricky Santorum SHOULD STAND HIS GROUND ON THIS QUESTION ...

Reply with "Both Barrels" ... Take No Prisoners ...

Take that darned METROSEXUAL "Soccer-Mommie" SWEATER ... OFF ...

and KICK SOME XXXXXXXXXX.


================================


Would Ronald Reagan, Newt Gingrich, "You" or "I" ...

Roman General Maximus Decimus Meridius ...

Washington, Patton, Dolittle, Chesty Puller ...

need someone to "hold our little hand" to defend us ?????


================================


This the "precisely" WHY Rickey Santorum (probably secretly in league with Mitt Romney) ...

WILL NEVER DEFEAT the Islamic Infidel "Barack Hussein Obama" ...
