Multiple members of the GOP claim that God is telling them to run for president. Herman Cain explained to Christian radio host Bryan Fischer that God sent him a text message through his granddaughter to continue running. Listen:
Regarding Rick Santorum’s presidential bid, his wife Karen told CBS, “We have prayed a lot about this decision, and we believe with all our hearts that this is what God wants."
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who previously said that her running for president depends on whether God is calling her to do so, confirmed that she now has “that calling and tugging on my heart.”
Does God indeed want a Republican president, given the fact that He seems to be texting or speaking only to GOP hopefuls? If so, why doesn’t He settle on one? Could it be that He is working in mysterious ways to sow confusion in Republican ranks? God only knows.
