Speak of the Devil: Santorum's Coming to Town as Jeffress Joins O'Reilly to Talk "Satan" Speech

Rick Santorum during his visit to Plano earlier this month
Says here Rick Santorum's coming back to town tomorrow for a fundraiser on behalf of his Red, White and Blue Fund super PAC, which declined to nail down the Dallas date; it also doesn't appear on his official campaign schedule, and his campaign folks haven't responded to our queries either. But a Friend of Unfair Park who, ya know, knows says it's a done deal. The timing's certainly right, given his sizable lead in the Texas Tribune/University of Texas poll released earlier this week.

And if even if he wasn't coming to town tomorrow, well, it's worth directing your attention to this just-dispatched note from none other than First Baptist's Robert Jeffress: "Is Satan alive and active as Rick Santorum said he is in a 2008 speech? Catch me tonight on The O'Reilly Factor!" Jeffress, of course, is referring to remarks Santorum made in Florida in 2008, when he said, "Satan has his sights on the United States of America" -- remarks again making the rounds, which tickles Romney supporter Chris Christie.

Which reminds me: North Texas transplant Glenn Beck was on O'Reilly last night pitching his summertime wingding "Restoring Love," which includes the love-in at Cowboys Stadium at the end of July. Biggest Tea Party ever!

 Very superstitious, the devil's on his wayWhen you believe in things that you don't understand

Then you suffer

Superstition ain't the way

By the way Beck will be taping an appearance Monday night at James Robison's studio in Euless on Hwy 10.

Santorum said, in defending his religious statements, something to the effect that he's comfortable with the controversy because it comes from HERE (pointing to his heart).

I could be wrong, but I'd like my President to tackle the issues with his brain, not his heart.  The heart is prone to making stupid and often costly decisions (like marrying a Puerto Rican lady with an inhuman talent for juggling credit cards, but that is another story altogether), whereas the brain more or less relies on facts and figures to come to a decision.

Religious fervor is the main reason that, although I remain a conservative, I will never vote Republican again.

I wish somebody could get the dirt on when O''Reilly worked at WFAA in the 70s....  But I guess you won't be at this paper long enough, Robt.   Dang,  Double Dang!

I think Santorum and his ilk are the closest thing we're ever gonna get to actually seeing this Satan fellow.

hooray for candidates that don't duck the real issues. i'd also like to hear how each would defend us against the inevitable space alien attack.

I'm pretty sure Satan would make it rather obvious he was active and wouldn't need The O'Reilly Factor to confirm it.

Santorum's the one that claims Democrats are anti-science, right?

Wonder what his scientific evidence for Satan is.

I'm surprised that more conservatives haven't adopted this stance. What was once extreme is now mainstream while the mainstream of the Democratic party continues to shift to the right, or as others insist, the "center."

I was watching one of those History/Discovery/National Geographic channels a few months ago and saw a show which reported that supposedly the Federal government really does have a plan for alien invasion.

Unfortunately, under Tea Party government that will get de-funded.

 Space aliens are more plausible.

 A more cynical person would hint that The O'Reilly Factor is confirmation enough.

It's beyond me.  I gave up organized religion even earlier than I gave up on the Republicans.  I still have my faith, childhood indoctrination is a terribly difficult thing to break free from, plus I have seen a few things that defy scientific explanation (at least, they defy explanation with my admittedly limited grasp of science).  The problems I have with religion all have to do with the hypocrisy of it.Another reason I see for the shift you describe is a simple matter of experience.  Liberals tend to explore their world, their thoughts, and themselves earlier in life and more fully than conservatives do.  Conservatives tend to surround themselves with like-thinking people, limiting their experiences.  I was lucky to have friends throughout my life who challenged my thinking in just about every way possible.  It forced me to examine things through lenses other than the rose colored glasses of religion.  As a result, I have become more socially liberal and remained extremely fiscally conservative.  It is a viewpoint that has helped me to evolve with the world instead of running in an ever-constricting circle of narrow, harsh views, which is what the political right is doing in this country.
