Herman Cain, a blast from the past. Another over-paid pampered CEO whose ego grew so huge he thought he could really be President. Cain was never going anywhere of course, but don’t think for a second he knew that, far from it. These clowns have way more faith in themselves than your average non-pathological person would imagine. But what brief intersection Cain had with that fantasy was cut short by multiple allegations he was a hound. Now, Herman Cain knows who to blame:
Real Clear Religion — Then he speculated as to who may have orchestrated the allegations: the Devil. “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.”
The devil is such a ridiculous figure in Abrahamic theology that even as a third-grader who liked stories about ancient aliens and yetis, I knew it was bogus. Cain might know that too, but either way it won’t stop him from using it to scare his hard-working neighbors into voting against their own interests so that billionaires can have a few more bucks.
