Over at Facebook, a “friend” liked a Glenn Beck article called, “OMG! Rick Santorum is Religious!?“
Curiosity encouraged me to click on it to read for myself. I’m not going to spend much time on this, as we all know that Beck is an easy target.
In a nutshell, Beck lambasts anyone who would criticize Santorum for his religious views or for saying that “Satan has targeted America” back in 2008.
Beck says that in a country with 95% of the population believing in a higher power, how could anyone criticize Santorum?
- Firstly, when did the number go up from around 80% belief to 95%?
- Secondly, if you place yourself in a spotlight, you are subject to praise and criticism. Questioning that is a waste of time.
- Thirdly, if you expect everyone to believe in an invisible being who is supposedly responsible for all of the world’s woes — and for burying fossils to confuse science and Young Earth Creationists — you deserve criticism. If you are a presidential candidate who thinks an invisible being exists without any proof whatsoever, you deserve utmost criticism.
Satan, the evil being that God allows to exist so that he’s not accused of tyranny or un-just-ness. Satan, the guy who is responsible for you lusting sexually over your neighbor’s body. Satan, the guy who is responsible for cancer, disease, turmoil and tribulation.
He’s invisible and 95% of the American population knows he exists.
And he has targeted America and all free people.
With his invisible target devices.
What part of this am I not supposed to criticize?
