This is just a part of some comments he made in regards to what he sees as an attack on the U.S. by Satan. He goes after higher education first then goes on from there to churches and government..I think it's a prime example of just how he wants to undermine education in the U.S. 

"This is not a political war at all. This is not a cultural war at all. This is a spiritual war. And 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.

He didn’t have much success in the early days. Our foundation was very strong, in fact is very strong. But over time that great, acidic quality of time corrodes away even the strongest foundations. And Satan has done so by attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity and sensuality as the route to attack all of these strong plants that have so deeply rooted in American tradition. He was successful. He attacks all of us and he attacks all of our institutions.

The place where he was, in my mind, the most successful and first -- first successful was in academia. He understood pride of smart people. He attacked them at their weakest. They were in fact smarter than everybody else and could come up with something new and different -- pursue new truths, deny the existence of truth, play with it because they’re smart. And so academia a long time ago fell."

If you ask me. I think he's just insane across the board.

   Look at it this way: Bad as he may be, Satan can't do any more damage to America than Christianity has.

Wow... a bit of a nationalist aren't we Sanitarium? Why the "Hell" would Satan give a crap about our stupid country? lol

Todd Wade...

Oh, please, with the "I am going to move out of the country" melodrama. 

If you actually do this you will be the first; I notice all the Hollywood types never followed through on their promises.

"pride of smart people" - that phrase describes a concern that should be the least of Rick's worries. I can't wait for a category entitled, "Satan On Santorum"!

@StevelnCO.. Oh, that's easy. Because smart people can see through the the crap the fundies spread. 

-- Btw, I was so hoping Limbaugh was going to follow-up on his promise to leave the country when Health Reform passed I was on the verge of having a party. But then he never left.. typical Conservative. Making promises they won't keep.    LOL

Skycomet the Fallen Angel - why do fundies hate smart people?

Because smart people ask questions.

Breaking away from British Tyranny and uniting the Colonies has given this nation it's mantle.

But you could not biblically justify it and moreover say we are on God's side from the beginning.
