One time Godfather’s Pizza CEO and GOP candidate for President contends that the Devil was behind the sexual harassment charges that imploded his campaign. He also believes that those stories were the only impediment between him and the White House
Where to begin?
Cain enjoyed being front-runner for a few weeks, as did every other crazy candidate vying for the Republican nomination. The GOP had to make it very clear to Mitt Romney that the majority neither liked nor trusted him so they made him work very very hard.
Also, if Cain believed he had any chance to be the Republican candidate then he clearly has not watched any interview he ever gave.
He basically had no idea about anything or just parroted 999.
(Maybe he was summoning Satan in code.)
But back the sexual harassment stories. Cain castigated the media for not doing their due diligence.
The egomaniacal belief that the devil would arise to prevent Cain from being elected President is beyond frightening.
He was a guy with a book, did some motivational speaking and wanted to juice up sales.
If he seriously wanted to be President, Cain would have actually studied the issues. Or a map.
Folks can laugh that the clownish Cain has made his sordid groping a matter of good versus the devil.
But he is right about one thing. The media did not vet him properly.
Or they would have written about his role as the head of the National Restaurant Association and his tireless efforts to keep the sub minimum wage in place for restaurant workers.
Now that’s a sin.
According to RealClearReligion:
“It made me realize that there was a force bigger than right,” Cain said.
But that doesn’t mean Cain has given up. Nowadays, Cain fights against the Evil One from the pulpit. Cain has been a member of the same Baptist church in Atlanta — “a church in the hood” — since he was 10, where he now serves as an associate pastor.
Cain preaches that the Devil is “determined to destroy our culture” and that “the family is at the center of our culture and the center of the family is its religious beliefs.”
A recent sermon of his is entitled: “Don’t Give Up, Get Up!” He told the congregation that there are three ways to battle “give-up-itis. You get down on your knees and pray, you write down your blessings, and you turn down the noise in your life.” The noise in Cain’s life is considerably softer than it was two years ago, but he hasn’t called it in just yet.
