Santorum Satan: Santorum’s Satan Remark

February 22, 2012 by staff 

Santorum Satan: Santorum’s Satan Remark, Just when it seemed the Republican presidential race couldn’t yield any more true surprises – or become any more surreal – suddenly Satan is part of the political conversation.

Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum is coming under new scrutiny over an old speech in which he said the United States was under threat from Lucifer himself.

“Satan has his sights on the United States of America,” Santorum told a Catholic university audience in 2008.

“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 (have) so deeply rooted in the American tradition.”

The remarks, publicized this week by the conservative Drudge Report and by liberal websites, have sharpened the focus on religious and cultural issues within the GOP just as the party’s presidential contenders grapple with how to respond to an improving U.S. economy.

It has also given supporters of Mitt Romney, who is struggling to contain Santorum’s recent surge in polls, an opening to raise questions about Santorum’s appeal beyond the evangelical base of the Republican party.
