Divine Comedy? Fourth Candidate Told By God To Run Withdraws From Presidential Race

We previously discussed how God appears to be playing a divine joke on Republican candidates who publicly claimed that he caused them to run — only to go down in flames in the primary. Now Santorum has become the fourth candidate who has withdrawn despite divine instructions to run. It appears that we now know the name that God gave Robertson as the next president of the United States — at least one of two names.

Santorum often ran as if he were the avenging angel of the God Almighty. It was not surprising, therefore, that his crusade began with a thumbs up from the Big Guy:

“It really boils down to God’s will. What is it that God wants? … We have prayed a lot about this decision, and we believe with all our hearts that this is what God wants.”

Does that mean God wanted Santorum to fail?

Of course, what God giveth, God can taketh away. Consider Cain use of reverse divine instructions to his withdrawal:

“You want to know why? God said, ‘Not yet Herman,’” Cain told the crowd. “God said, ‘Not yet. I’ve got something else for you to do.’ And it might be to become the president of the United States of America.”

Of course, Santorum was looking at the ignoble prospect of losing to Romney in his home state of Pennsylvania — Santorum was previously roundly defeated in that state for reelection to the Senate.

  1. The reference to Satan comes from John Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Lost.Milton had some great lines of poetry to offer, and as someone once truly said, the character “Satan” always gets the best lines. Can’t say the same for the “Father” and “Son” who sit on either side of Himself, like the guy who said: “I used to be a schizophenic, but we’re all right now.”..

  2. How come you so easily put down the notion of the ‘1’ G*D but have no challenge against the thought of a ‘satan’….?

  3. Ahem. Have you always noticed that those who say ahem, are those who don’t want to say Amen. Not that they aren’t religious. It’s just that Amen without the preacher’s blessing is taking a religious word in vain.

    Which is all a joke, Commoner.

  4. Santorum means what Cain is openly saying: That golden number, 2016. I will be praying to the Almighty until that date for a good candidate, be it Republican or Democrat, to take over from Obama in 2016. As to Santorum and Cain, I say Gog Forbid.

    1. It is because Satan is in him denying Satan exists that is defiled, abominable, perverted, deviant speaking blasphemy thinking he is doing good not repenting of his words , and actions through men thereby not being able to be forgiven by God. All of those words describe what comes out of the mouth of Satan thorough the human soul not resisting him. .

  5. A politician saying that? Oh, that would be something, DS. I’d settle for a football player saying “Jesus blocked my screen pass! Apparently the Lord loves a running game.”

  6. “I once had received the word of God. He told me what I was doing was wrong and that I no longer have His endorsement. God is no longer on our side it seems.” Oh, what I wouldn’t give to hear that from a politician for a change.

  7. Jonathan Hughes:

    “Jesus is against war too.”

    Not exactly:

    34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

    ~Matt. 10:34

    Jesus was not very receptive to criticism, either.

    20 Then Jesus began to denounce the towns in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades.[a] For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. 24 But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”

    ~Matt. 11

  8. Pardon the blasphemy. But all religions promise (framgång) fortunate outcome to its believers.
    And these are true believers. I too, they say to themselves, shall be rewarded for my faithful service to the path of “Me first”.

  9. Amen, which seems to be the same word in all Abrahamic religions.

    Many questions left of course. Like: who will revive the KKK? Who will stand in the doorway to Skull and Bones? Who will make an ugly statue of JFK for the Mall? (MLKjr’s is a punch in the mouth.)

    Go ahead, add to the list of what the tribe of Satan will do next.
