From the Drudge 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.
The White House contender described how Satan is even taking hold of some religions.
"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."
Note that those quotes are from 2008. Still, it's not as though Santorum has become any saner in the past few years.
Check out these crazy Santorum quotes. He's against contraception because it's a "license to do things in a sexual realm." Gay marriage is just like the 9/11 attacks. And prenatal testing is all about eugenics.
But this does explain those sweater vests, I guess. He's just trying to avoid those sins of "pride, vanity, and sensuality."
