"Satan" Wins In Mississippi: Are you afraid?
No, it's not a Dana Carvey/Church Lady parody, although it might as well be. RightwingWatch provides a roundup of anti-choice finger-pointing when it comes to the defeat of the constitutional amendment that would have granted legal rights to fertilized eggs.
Among the culprits are the media, Planned Parenthood, and, of course, Satan:
The kingdom of Satan is united, which is why, for this season, it’s successful. Eventually the church will be united. At the end of the age we will be a powerful, praying church that stands for the only definition of justice that exists: the Jesus one. But right now we’re not there. I don’t want to be cynical. I know many wonderful praying people of all denominations who stand for LIFE and the word of God. We are advancing, but tonight, once again, we have let the kingdom of darkness advance ahead of us.
Man, that is one powerful and popular little devil.
Mississippi Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, who was elected as governor yesterday,
also co-chaired “Yes on 26,” the campaign to pass a “Personhood”
amendment in the state, and said on Election Day that the fight over
Initiative 26 was “a battle of good and evil of Biblical proportions”
and warned that “Satan wins” if the initiative fails. Bryan Fischer of
the American Family Association, which heavily funded the “Yes on 26”
effort, warned that the country would face God’s judgment if Initiative
26 lost and urged voters to “choose life lest the flickering flame of
our liberty be extinguished forever.”
