Santorum's Satan Comments

Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum is being criticized for comments he made about Satan and America - four years ago. He told an audience at Florida's Ave Maria University,
"Satan is attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has so deeply rooted in the American tradition... This is a spiritual war. And the Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies 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?"
Matt Drudge highlighted the comments on his website today for several hours after RightWingWatch posted a video on YouTube that featured the audio from the Santorum speech. It comes just days after Santorum used the phrase “phony theology” in relation to Barack Obama. Santorum later said "theology" was a just a slip and he meant to refer to Obama’s “radical” environmental views.

Below you can hear the audio of his comments at Ave Maria.
