So a lot of people, especially progressives, would be surprised to learn that Michael Savage is not a religious person (his words). He sure pretends to be religious and to a certain point he is, but what he means is that he doesn’t believe in any organized religion be it Judaism, Christianity or whatever.
Savage is mostly on the side of religious Christians. His defense of Venerable Pius XII and Benedict XVI, Christians in the Islamic world, Christians in the West, and the unborn must be commended. One would be surprised I agree with him politically on almost everything. He even commended Catholicism as “a beautiful religion” . I certainly would not equate him with the likes of Bill Maher, Richard Dawkins or even Alex Jones. Having said that there are some things that Michael Savage that very religious Christians may not and should not like.
He really likes to quote the Bible a lot as if he were the world’s greatest theologian and philosopher , but when somebody that’s too religious comes onto his radio show then his real thoughts come out. So why does he quote from the Bible, a collection of books written by observers of organized religion? From what it sounds like his views are quite similar to Bahai. It sounds like another person creating their own philosophy or religion. Then he has the audacity to imply the Pope could be the Antichrist. Then he chants “separation of Church and state” when a cleric something he doesn’t like, but not when it comes to abortion, homosexuality or Sharia . Then he calls Rick Santorum a lunatic and a fanatic after agreeing with him for so long over the issue of contraception ; yet simultaneously Santorum promised he wasn’t interested in banning contraceptives.
So Michael Savage is going head over heels for Donald Trump, which is fine and dandy — I highly respect him politically — but I it seems a bit excessive as if he believes he will fix everything. This is exactly what I meant by I don’t trust any politician to fix everything even if they can fix a lot of it. That’s what happens when you believe “the Messiah is in all of us” . You begin to think certain people will create a utopia on Earth, hence believe in utopianism, due to some belief that “the Messiah is in all of us” rather than being in physical form. That’s pretty revealing coming from a guy who also say Jesus Christ “is no longer among us” . This is coming from a radio host who at least once called himself a prophet, yet claimed he doesn’t claim to speak to God, but he doesn’t apparently know the definition of prophet and it is one who speaks for God. What he and many others need to learn is from the likes of Saint Louis of France who cared both economically and spiritually for his country; he put spiritually over economics yet did a lot economically for France which was united under one God and had a state religion.
