Savage: Santorum is right about Satan

Comments resurrected from a 2008 speech at Ave Maria University in Florida about Satan’s influence on America made Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum a target of abuse this week on TV and radio talk shows, but TRN talker Michael Savage contends the former PA senator is right, and his beliefs should only help his chances for the White House this fall:


“I think Santorum is right, and I think that anyone who attacks him is not seeing this for what it is,” Savage told his audience. “I agree America is primarily a Christian nation, and its churches and synagogues are filled with parishioners who are screaming for preachers and pastors and rabbis to speak the truth, and they’re not getting it.”

Santorum said 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.”

Savage said Santorum’s speech “speaks to the core issue in America right now, which is the culture rot, the soul rot.”

Santorum said America is in 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?”

Savage said people in many churches and synagogues are getting only “mumbo jumbo…They don’t get the true stuff that they’re going to the churches for,” Savage said.

Savage noted the comments have caused concern among Republicans who believe they could cause serious damage in the general election if Santorum were to become the nominee. However, “I don’t care that the liberals are having a heyday with it. I think it’s going to work against them…you never know what can happen when you get someone who actually believes what he’s talking about, as Rick Santorum does,” Savage said.
