Rush Limbaugh: Santorum Will Have To Answer On Satan

Well, I guess it’s better than having to answer to Satan. Limbaugh said that Santorum’s comments about Satan were meant to demonstrate that he is nothing more than the religious wacko that the left has tried to portray him as. But he will have to answer for them because he did in fact say what he said.

RUSH: I mentioned earlier in the program that Santorum, people have dug deep and they found a speech that he gave back in 2008 in Ave Maria, Florida, at Ave Maria University. Drudge has this plastered up. The Democrats have found it. It’s all over the place. Think Progress and whatever leftist think tanks have dug this up, and it’s part of the predictable attempt to impugn Santorum as an absolute religious nut and wacko. But he did say these things and he’ll to have an answer for these things when queried.

Santorum caught a lot of heat for these statements yesterday, and of course it’s just beginning. What offends me though, is how it seems to be automatically assumed, even by those on the right, that his statements about Satan are going to be automatically deemed outside the mainstream. I suppose it’s possible but like I said here, it doesn’t make it any less true.

In this Gallup poll from last July, a plurality of Americans still believe in the Bible as either the literal or inspired Word of God. In general, you can’t believe in God without believing in Satan as well. And if you believe that there is a Satan, then you know what he’s up to and what his intentions are.

To say that Rick Santorum is off his rocker for the speech he gave in Ave Maria, Florida is to deny that what he said had any truth to it.

Seriously. Why is it crazy for Rick Santorum to mention Satan’s targeting of the United States, while folks like Bill Maher get a pass for mocking God and saying that he doesn’t even exist?
