What Fresh Hell Is This?

Mourdock is (half) right

Romney-endorsed Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock probably got it half right when he said the following in a debate last night:
“I’ve struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said. “And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

I mean, he got it half right when it comes to his understanding of his god. I am assuming he's a Christian who believes that his god is omniscient and omnipotent. I assume he reads the Christian Bible wherein his god commands rapists to marry their victims and which on any number of occasions tells men when it's OK to "plunder" woman, take captives as their wives (you know, if they're pretty enough and after killing the men folk) or gives advice about selling your daughter into slavery.

It's the whole 'the Lord is against killing babies' bit that Mourdock gets laughably wrong. I mean, where to even start with that one? (Egypt would probably be a good start.) The Christian Bible would make a great script for a slasher film -- except even slasher films don't usually kill babies (mostly just women).

In the interest of not having to type out quote after quote, here's an instructive video on what the Christian Bible has to say about killing babies and children:


Did you find that offensive?

Well, hell (no pun intended), I find it offensive that men like Mourdock are constantly trying to make laws on abortion when they are such hypocrites about so much else that's in their very own bibles.

Has Mourdock ever worked on Sunday?

Has he ever played football?

Does he wear clothing woven from two types of cloth?

I can see that he has sideburns...

Where are his laws against all that?

And if he doesn't get to it writing these laws (pronto!), when are we all gathering to stone him in a public square?

Just shut the fuck up already.

If God intended the fertilization of the egg to occur then certainly he must have intended the rape to occur also???

Or in other words, you can't have a rape baby without the rape.
