Senator Jim DeMint tells The Brody File that the Tea Party is a “spiritual revival” waiting to happen. He compares it to “The Great Awakening”. You can watch his fascinating comments below and read a partial transcription as well.
There’s been quite a bit of talk about how the Tea Party crowd cares only about fiscal issues. And while that is their primary focus, DeMint clearly sees God’s hand in this movement.
David Brody: “Are you concerned at all that some of the social conservative issues, abortion and same sex marriage, some of these other issues because they are taking somewhat of a back seat right now at least to the fiscal issues that there are some inherent problems for social conservatives in something like that?”
Senator Jim DeMint: “No actually just the opposite because I really think a lot of the motivation behind these Tea Party crowds is a spiritual component. I think it’s very akin to the Great Awakening before the American Revolution. A lot of our founders believed the American Revolution was won before we ever got into a fight with the British. It was a spiritual renewal.”
Senator Jim DeMint: “I’m ‘praying for you” comes up more than anything else in these crowds so I know there’s a spiritual component out there.”
