Santorum's Critics Balk at Assigning Moral Superiority to America
This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.
Opposition research into Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign has revealed what is, for some, an alarming fact. Four years ago, he declared that, “Satan has his sights on the United States…: a good, decent, powerful, influential country.”
His critics complain about the use of such religious imagery. But they really seem upset by his characterization of a world in which evil exists and threatens the good.
Worse, many seem to believe that America isn’t so good--that it’s morally equivalent to the most repressive and aggressive of nations.
Kudos to Senator Santorum for seeing the truth and speaking it so forcefully. Ronald Reagan said America is mankind’s last best hope. God help us, and freedom-loving people everywhere, if we lose sight of this nation’s goodness, a huge step towards our succumbing to evil.
