Glenn Says His CO Convention Speech “Wasn’t Me” But “Holy Spirit” Instead

(Why not? — Promoted by Colorado Pols)

Darryl Glenn.

Darryl Glenn.

Left out of much of the coverage of Darryl Glenn’s victory Tuesday is the fact that he’s a full-throttle supporter of a personhood abortion ban, according to Colorado Right to Life.

Glenn’s support of personhood apparently stems from his deep religious beliefs, which he spotlights frequently on the campaign trail.

For example, as I reference in a Rewire post today on the implications of Glenn’s personhood stance, Glenn discussed the importance of religion to him and his campaign in an April 11 interview on Colorado Springs radio about his speech at the Republican state convention:

RANDALL:  You were the one who brought it all.  And yours – if they were going to listen to one speech, including Ted Cruz – no offense—yours was the one to listen to.  There’s a lot of passion in you.  Where does the passion come from?

GLENN:Well, that wasn’t me.  That was the Holy Spirit coming through, just speaking the truth.

RANDALL:  Seriously!?

GLENN:  Absolutely.  This campaign has always been about honoring and serving God and stepping up and doing the right thing.

RANDALL:  Then I got to tell you what:  It’s a powerful thing.  I’ve always been baffled at how the Holy Spirit works. […]  but if you are the conduit, and that is what is coming out of you, then it is a powerful, powerful thing!

Based on this, it would be interesting to know what Glenn thinks of the separation between church and state, but it’s clear that he takes his religious beliefs seriously.

      yes. I also believe that anyone who thinks God wants them to be elected, speaks though them in their campaign speeches, putting their opponent and their opponent's supporters in the camp opposed to and by God, has no business running for elected office in the United States of America. A more un-American, Taliban like attitude is hard to imagine.

    I've said and done a lot of things that weren't me but spirits, especially, Jack Daniels.smiley

    I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.

    Wow!  What a team the megalomaniacal narcissist and the guy with a messiah-complex will make campaigning together this Friday!

    Does Trump approve of having people who hear voices on stage with him?  Although Dr. Beam is good, even very good on sale, I have reverted to the peaceful spirit of Bombay with two olives.

    I wonder how Mr. Glenn feels about Article VI of the US Constitution and its wording regarding religious tests. 

    • slavdude says:

      That's probably not in the version he reads, which consists only of parts of Articles I and II, parts of the First and Second Amendments, and maybe the Tenth.

      • Conserv. Head Banger says:

        slavdude: you could be right.

        1st amendment:  only the part that creates freedom to discriminate in the name of religious freedom.

        2nd amendment:   guns, guns, guns  ( actually also the title of a song by the great Canadian band, The Guess Who — listen sometime to the lyrics of "American Woman," if you want to know what they really thought of the US back then, but still a great song)

        10th Amendment:  everything belongs to the states except military bases and the District of Columbia.
