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.

  1. Once again the Left proves, without a shadow of a doubt, that there’s nothing they won’t say or do against people with the “R” next to their name. Now, if this was a story about Obama and his gay lover from Chicago (which there was), they’d spike this story so deep into the ground it would pop out the other side of the Earth.

  2. I clicked the link and read it at the source, Washington Monthly. There is no Santorum quote in which he calls anyone “Satan’s Spawn.” Worse, he said nothing that could even be taken to imply that he believes Protestants to be the spawn of Satan. He never said it and it’s just not there.

  3. Did you read the full text of Santorum’s speech? It’s all about the campaign of “the Father of Lies” to take over one institution after another to weaken America. The first to fall, in Santorum’s account, was the universities. The second was the mainline Protestant churches.

    Yes, “spawn of Satan” is slightly over the top, but in sober fact Santorum claimed that all of mainline Protestantism has been conquered by Satan and is no longer part of “the world of Christianity.”

    And your outrage (real or assumed) is about a blogger’s headline rather than the insult a Presidential candidate directed at 45 million members of mainline Protestant churches? Pah.

  4. This is why they are trying to gin up the contraceptive or gay marriage thing.
    They want people to think that Rick Santorum is some bible thumpin’ ,snake handlin’ crazy eyed preacher who will outlaw sex and liquor.
    It’s the only thing they can slime him with.

  5. Well, if Protestants are Satan’s spawn, who are the Mormons? Or the Anglicans? Or the Episcopals? Hahahahah… just kidding.

    Rick is right that mainline Protestantism has lurched left, just look at Barry’s “Jesus was a socialist” remark. Of course, Catholicism has it’s own serious problems with leftism as well.

  6. Maybe Obamas truth squads will step in.

  7. @NeoKong

    The only thing they could slime him with? How about santorum testifying in a lawsuit for $500,000 in damages for a back injury to his wife when he is supposed to be for $250,000 limits and be for tort reform.

    How about santorum saying there are no absolute freedoms in the constitution and saying there is no freedom to gambling or anything you want on the internet. He said this in an interview a few weeks back. He took the same position as he did in the debate about how sopa is good legislation and you can’t do whatever you want on the internet.

    Santorum was for no child left behind, medicare part d, bloated highway bill with bridge to nowhere. He is on record about bragging about all the earmarks.

    Santorum voted against right to work legislation and is a big union shill.

    Santorum is why gop lost in 2006 with big spending and schiavo. He is the wrong candidate for the wrong time and the dems can’t believe their luck that he could be the nominee.

    Santorum is down double digits in florida, arizona, nevada, mass where the closest senate races are.

    A nominee santorum could bring back pelosi, five more dem senators and hand obama a mondale type win where the msm could make the fake reagan comparison.

    If Santorum is the nominee the election is about santorum.

    He said birth control harmful to women, that married people should use it, that sex should be special, that it is not ok to use birth control.

    We are electing a president not a pope and santorum would lose by the biggest margin ever just like he lost his senate race by the biggest margin ever.

    But people can’t understand just like they couldn’t understand that angle was letting reid off the hook and they want to stick it to the gop establishment more than they want to hold obama to account.

  8. Just like Maureen Dowd hearing “boy” when people talked about zippy. I guess “Satan’s spawn” was implicit, right Mark?

  9. One always needs to bear in mind that there is essentially NO documentation on who Obama is or was or what he did until he went to Harvard, and scant evidence there as well. It is all “under seal.” Obama and his acolytes do not deal in the truth and transparency.

  10. Well if a Secular Fundamentalist Terrorist from the Progressive Axis of Evil DC, NY and LA says it’s true then it must be a lie.

  11. One can expect the Lying Stream Media and their liberal sychophants to increase the lies and innuendo against conservatives as we get closer to the election.

    The Bible says what will happen in the latter days in 2 Tim 3:1-9:

    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest to all men, as their’s also was.

    Rick Santorum’s comments were correct regarding the state of mainline protestant churches. Many are in a shambles. These denominations have allowed false doctrines that are antithetical to Biblical teaching to permeate their churches. Which false doctrines one may ask? The acceptance and elevation of homosexuality as normal when it is specifically found to be an abomination to God. The condoning of the perversion of God’s covenant of marriage by officiating and accepting marriage other than between a man and a woman as God has ordained. The “looking” away at the murder of innocent life in the womb. Claiming that Jesus was not actually resurrected after his death and burial – note the “having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof” in 2 Tim.

    When Satan learned he couldn’t destroy the church by persecution from the outside, he joined the church to create havoc from within. He’s gotten a foothold in many of our so-called Christian churches.

    In the political arena, Saul Alinsky and the left had a master teacher in Satan.

  12. What he said is pretty standard among Catholics and evangelicals — that mainline churches have fallen away from the teachings of scriptures and have instead embraced the worldly values of secularism that stand in contrast to the teachings of God. It is no accident that these same mainline churches are dying.

    Cops buy cemetery plots to block Josh Powell burial

    ["We might not be able to keep Josh Powell out of the cemetery,
    but it's way better than having him right next to the boys," ......]

  15. The world council of churches is more than anything else a left wing political organization, i do not know of anything they have put out about religious freedom but they have a long list of social reforms that reek of Marx. The only church they are promoting is something like Flip Wilsons church of whats happening now.

  16. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

  17. Has anyone ever read Washington Monthly? My dad subscribes, so when I visited him I perused it.

    Very long, wordy articles about “smart” government, “smart” growth, “smart” capitalism. When you read the articles, it becomes clear what they mean by “smart” is really “directed by government bureaucracies”.

    in fact become like the Ten Commandments"

    is one of the most important and successful in human history."

    the door of God, is fastened on the shoulders of man.”

    via “divide & conquer”

    [Critical theory is thus able to develop a sharp, subtle, and derogatory account of modern consciousness which undermines much we believe by showing us the influences which have moulded our beliefs. These influences are contrasted with rationality and with the conditions for rational argument that would allow what Habermas calls the ‘ideal speech act’. Critical theory has therefore had a considerable influence, often indirect, on such ‘counter-culture’ movements as feminism and the green movement because it allows them to point to the structure and irrational origins of our ‘patriarchal’ or ‘industrial’ thought.]

    via “revolution & ruin”

    [In a chilling and almost unbelievable editorial again in The Nation (”Mobilizing the Jobless,” January 10/17, 2011 edition), she calls on the jobless to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force. As before, those calls are dripping with language of class struggle. Language she and her late husband Richard Cloward made popular in the 60s.]

    via “collapse & rebuild”

    [Their article called for "cadres of aggressive organizers" to use "demonstrations to create a climate of militancy." Intimidated by threats of black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, leftwing journalists, would float the idea of "a federal program of income redistribution," in the form of a guaranteed living income for all -- working and non-working people alike. Local officials would clutch at this idea like drowning men to a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement it. With every major city erupting into chaos, Washington would have to act.

    This was an example of what are commonly called Trojan Horse movements -- mass movements whose outward purpose seems to be providing material help to the downtrodden, but whose real objective is to draft poor people into service as revolutionary foot soldiers; to mobilize poor people en masse to overwhelm government agencies with a flood of demands beyond the capacity of those agencies to meet. The flood of demands was calculated to break the budget, jam the bureaucratic gears into gridlock, and bring the system crashing down. Fear, turmoil, violence and economic collapse would accompany such a breakdown -- providing perfect conditions for fostering radical change. That was the theory.]

    via “social justice & slavery”

    [The greatest nation in the history of the world is teetering on the brink of a catastrophic economic crisis. America was pushed to this point by a rapidly-expanding national debt and a stressed-out entitlement system; in the center of this crisis is the President, who insists on expanding it even further, all in the name "fairness" and "social justice."]

    Obama is The Nothing in The NeverEnding Story ~ :-(
