So, as we all know, the Troglodyte From Indiana - Richard Mourdock - started here:
"Even if life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen."...and then, of course, this morning, he chose to go here...
"I spoke from my heart. And speaking from my heart, speaking from the deepest level of my faith, I would not apologize. I would be less than faithful if I said anything other than life is precious, I believe it's a gift from god."...which was basically his way of saying...
Look, God couldn't get there in time to stop the forcible sex part, but as a parting gift... I give you a baby.To which I have to wonder...
Not a baby that you asked for or thought to have, but it's a baby and you'll thank me later.
Because I'm God.
And it's a blessing.
Doesn't it bother any of the "God is good. Good is great" people, even a little, that this God they are so enamored of... this God that we have to pay homage to by sticking its fucking name on our money and on our buildings and on our lips every time we do so much as start a baseball game... THIS GOD couldn't be bothered to pause the TiVo long enough to prevent the act from happening in the first place?
And doesn't it irk them that God can so cavalierly create a life, but can't ALSO provide for later child care and health care and schooling and housing and all the basic needs that come with having a "blessed life" thrust upon you at the end of a knife or a gun?
And shouldn't God take into account that maybe there's PLENTY of life here already?
Like the 400,000 children currently in foster care? Or the 16 million plus children living in poverty in America. Or the 22,000 children who die a day due to lack of food and water?
Talk about people who do NOT deserve reelection.
I mean if the next 4000 years are like the last 4000 years!
Why aren't the God folk asking for ITS birth certificate?
And why don't they demand that the outcome of a rape should be that a child gets adopted, another 10 get the sustenance that they need, the woman instantly forgets the horrible thing that just happened and the rapists penis goes up in flames.
THAT'S making a blessing out of a curse.
See, to me, the sickest, saddest realization out of today's episode of Republican Rape Corner is not the human sentiment (though it's pretty fucking bad) but the fact that the God they so love and revere seems not worthy of that love or reverence.
