Rick Santorum says Hollywood is the devil’s playground

with 2 comments

Former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum called the film industry “the devil’s playground” as he sought to promote his own film, The Christmas Candle.

Santorum, Republican senator for Pennsylvania between 1995 and 2007 attempted to gain the presidential nomination in 2012 but was defeated by Mitt Romney. He is now CEO of EchoLight Studios, who specifically aim to make family-oriented faith films, and The Christmas Candle, starring Clash of the Titans’ Hans Matheson, is their latest release.

Santorum, a devout Catholic, was speaking on the Christian-oriented Trinity Broadcasting Network about the film, and said: “This is a tough business, this is something that we’re stepping out … and the devil, for a long, long time, has had this, these screens, for his playground. And he isn’t going to give it up easily.”

Santorum also issued a call for the faithful to put their hands in their pockets and pay to see the film and help his business. He said: “I ask for your prayers for me, for our company, for TBN, for all of those involved in The Christmas Candle, and we just want to thank you in advance for everything that you are going to do to help in making this a successful venture.”

No one milks the obedient faithful like fundamentalist hustlers. Santorum has avoided seriously working for a living right on through his political career straight into movies for the fearful.

Poisonally, I can’t see why he’s worried. True Believers are often easy marks for just about any kind of hustle. If one of the hustlers is exposed as a crook, there are always two or three more ready to take their place.

  2. Santorum – like so many know-nothings who claim to be conservatives – simply relies on denying reality, science, the Constitution, anything that would disabuse him of his archaic belief structure.

    It is a shame because traditional American conservatives respected knowledge, study, analysis. But, then, that’s why so many – including family members of mine – left what is still called the Republican Party.
