In Horrible Hit Piece Washington Monthly Says Santorum Called Protestants “Satan’s Spawn”

The liberal media is making up Santorum headlines out of whole cloth now.

The far left Washington Monthly posted this article today:

The headline by Ed Kilgore reads:
“Santorum to Mainline Protestants: You Are Satan’s Spawn”

Kilgore points to this Santorum quote from a speech he delivered to Ave Maria University in 2008.

[O]nce the colleges fell and those who were being educated in our institutions, the next was the church. Now you’d say, ‘wait, the Catholic Church’? No. We all know that this country was founded on a Judeo-Christian ethic but the Judeo-Christian ethic was a Protestant Judeo-Christian ethic, sure the Catholics had some influence, but this was a Protestant country and the Protestant ethic, mainstream, mainline Protestantism, and of course 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.

So where does Santorum say that Protestants are “Satan’s Spawn’? He doesn’t. What an awful misleading headline. This story is complete BS. Even the Washington Monthly should be ashamed about this hit piece.
