Episcopalians and Satan

I’m an Episcopalian. These days the national Episcopal Church is a hotbed of liberal asininity. But even the Episcopal Church, in its modern, liberal iteration, holds fast to the idea that Satan is real and that he is insidious and that he must be repeatedly renounced and rejected. Here is a key part of the current Episcopal liturgy for Holy Baptism:

Then the Celebrant asks the following questions of the candidates who
can speak for themselves, and of the parents and godparents who speak
on behalf of the infants and younger children

Question Do you renounce Satan and all the spiritual forces
of wickedness that rebel against God?
Answer I renounce them.

Question Do you renounce the evil powers of this world
which corrupt and destroy the creatures of God?
Answer I renounce them.

Question Do you renounce all sinful desires that draw you
from the love of God?
Answer I renounce them.

Question Do you turn to Jesus Christ and accept him as your
Answer I do.

Question Do you put your whole trust in his grace and love?
Answer I do.

So why are Santorum’s remarks even an issue?
