Skip to comments.Santorum 2008: America is under attack from Satan
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.

This Christian thinks Santorum is absolutely correct.
A lot of us think he’s correct but is there a place for stuff like this in a Presidential Election. It makes him look weird. He’s not running for Parish Priest.
Who needs Trump... I’m sure Rosie O’Donnell and the Green Party will be happy will be happy with your vote too.
Oh, that’s VERY good! HAA!!! Thank you!
(I’ll bet Satan only WISHES his ugly head looked that “handsome”!)
What Santorum has stated cannot be denied.
Just look around you at all the crumbling institutions: churches, schools, civic groups, the military, the press, and most of all, the family.
We are under siege. Prayer is good, but actions speak louder than words.
Santorum may be a modern day prophet.
Agreed......with Liberty and Justice for ALL. We always need people (especially) in positions of authority to remember this.
Reading and comprehension are our friends! This was NOT a campaign speech! This was a speech from 2008 at a private Catholic university! The libtards (I repeat myself) dug this up to try to smear him--but it ain't gonna work.
It’s laughable to believe libtards are taking Santorumania seriously. Dailykossacks are asking their members to vote for this guy in open primary. Santorumia is a Christsmas gift to the liberals.
Some people are just not living in reality. How did that Christine O’Donnell and Sharron Angle work out last time?
Santorumania is just another Christine O’Donnellor Sharron Angle, a disastrous canadiate for the general election. He has no charisma whatsoever. I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy loses 35+ states.
You dont have a problem supporting someone who until very recently was pro-abortion and pro-universal healthcare?
What are you gonna do when all you have to choose from is a 76 y.o. Kook-Daddy and Three Stooges? What the hell you gonna do? Apparently you’re a teen (from your screen name). Your convictions, and Santorum’s are commendable. But, I’m quite a bit older than you and I’ve worked on numerous political campaigns and I’ve never seen a candidate win running on “radical social issues”. He will lose in a landslide and cause us to lose the House and even more seats in the Senate.
Maniacal, truth-challenged, leftist frenzy PING!
That's exactly right pingman and for that reason he will not get the full spectrum of voters he would need to beat Obama.
Interesting to read some posts on sites which aren't Conservative and or of a religious nature......amazingly they will vote for Obama rather than Santorum because they don't want resident.
I can't say I don't blame them. There is a time and place... Santorum doesn't seem to have the discernment nor manner of delivery to frame his remarks in such a way as to not be highly offensive to the masses as a Presidential Candidate .... rather he comes across as a circut preacher bellowing hellfire and brimstone.. and that's not coming an invitation for the general public to see him favorably.
There's a reason Jesus said the ....." For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light. "
Where as not only does Newt identify with the public, a sinner forgiven, but he uses the matter of "God given rights" in the context of the what's good for our country and within the lines of the constitution.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are just a newbie, Obot operative, either.
I for one am glad this has been exposed. Secular Conservatism is as deadly as Liberalism. In fact it is the same animal.
So was Reagan, Chickie.
Yeah, unless you believe Christine ODonnellor Sharron Angle are Reagan.
But in the end, the battle belongs to the LORD... it is HE who fights our battles..
"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."
"Sensuality"? I'm surprised he didn't mention rock music as well. That hearkens right back to his statement that birth control is bad because it encourages sex for "improper purposes". Like just enjoying it, presumably. And he also said this:
"We look at the shape of mainline Protestantism in this country and it is in shambles, it is gone from the world of Christianity as I see it."
I can understand some people agreeing with those two statements, but I can't fathom a belief that most Americans agree with them. Santorum is preaching to his choir, and they love him for it, but that is how you lose elections.
As for me, the first statement regarding "sensuality" strikes me as weirdly uptight, and the second as dogmatic, self-righteous, and offensive. Perhaps he should have listened more closely to the "pride" and "vanity" components of the first statement before making the second.
“Maniacal, truth-challenged, leftist frenzy PING”
Yep. It does my heart good to watch them scatter like sprayed roaches.
>> “As for me, the first statement regarding “sensuality” strikes me as weirdly uptight” <<
Then God’s word must hit you in the same soft spot, since that is the word that is used in the Bible. It is specifically listed as a condition that will deny eternal life.
Very few will agree with Santorum’s assessment of ‘mainline’ protestantism, especially since mainline Roman catholicism is in so much worse shape. That doesn’t make his assessment wrong though, does it?
What do your red herring people (O'Donnell and Angle, who were never in the US Congress) have to do with Rick Santorum?
Please, try another "angle," Chickie.
>> “A lot of us think hes correct but is there a place for stuff like this in a Presidential Election.” <<
There is if he seeks God’s blessing on his undertaking. Ignoring God because some fool thinks his commandments are weird is no formula for success.
L O L !
Please see my reply to him in post 56. He is ignoring the fact that this was NOT a campaign speech, but a speech at a private college more than three and a half years ago.
The depth of your misunderstanding is astounding and it is also indicative of the American mind in general.
This is the very reason our Republic is in peril.
He’s a stinking troll, and he’s soon going to have a date with Great Zot.
satan runs the democrat party....always has. always will
Lovely. For Reagan, it was faith in his fellow Americans, and Morning in America. For you and Santorum, it's the belief that the rest of us are stupid, and are going to burn in hell, respectively.
Yeah, that's a winning campaign theme.
This is the very reason our Republic is in peril.
In peril?? Hey, if you believe what you say, we're doomed by our inferior American minds.
Santorum is speaking truth.
He is saying things that many of us have longed to hear from a conservative candidate for a long, long time.
Sarah Palin was like Rick: she was bold and unafraid in her pronouncements.
Since she is not running, I will back the only other true conservative, Rick Santorum.
