  •  Mourdock makes the logical case (3+ / 0-)

    for rape itself as a manifestation of God's will. Mourdock doesn't have the authority to make an outrageous statement and then demand that we all ignore the logical premises of his statement. If he declares conception as God's Will, how can he state that the preceding actions that resulted in rape are not God's Will? Eh?

    Where does this knucklehead get his authority to declare what is and isn't God Will?

    Just who does he think he is? Has God told all of us that Mourdock is His official spokesman? Or is Mourdock just another in a long line of ignorant, delusional soapbox preachers who got lucky and ended up getting the backing of fascists in his run for a Senate seat?

    •  He can say (as many Christians do) that actions (0+ / 0-)

      such as rape, that are contrary to God's will, are the result of human free will and our ability to disobey God. That's the general idea, anyway.
