If I Were The Devil...

Some may consider this a bit easy of me, but I have a comment I want to make.
Rick Santorum: The Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies, Satan, would have his sights on: a good, decent, powerful, influential country -- the United States of America. If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age? There is no one else to go after other than the United States, and that's been the case for now almost 200 years, once America's preeminence was sown by our great Founding Fathers.
I can think of someone I would attack if I were Satan. I would attack the Church of Jesus Christ, and I would do it through one very broad strategy. I would put on a snappy-looking sweater-vest and talk like Rick Santorum did in this now infamous speech. I would convince the Church that America is a bigger target than her. I would convince the Church to invest itself in a temporal institution which does not hold the keys to the Kingdom of God. I would convince the Church that if she closes the gap between herself and the State that she is fulfilling the great commission as well as the Adamic commission. I would convince the Church that she should care whether her political leaders are good theologians, but then have lax views about who should be in the clergy. I would convince the Church in America that she is more important than the Church in China or India or Bangladesh because of the country she is in.


  1. Funny, this speech of Sanctimonium, coming as it is from a faithful member of the Roman Catholic Church-State. (I.e. He knows from the father of lies!)

    If I were the devil
    I'd hide ther true gospel,
    I'd mix up the kingdoms
    All over this land.

    I'd hammer out "Danger,"
    I'd hammer out "Warning,"
    O-ver secondary issues
    To cloud the real truth.

  2. My thoughts exactly. Thank you.
