    you have to be Sh1tting me, people are actually going to vote for someone that believes this crap?

    NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said Tuesday when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape, "that's something God intended."
    Mourdock, who's been locked in one of the country's most watched Senate races, was asked during the final minutes of a debate with Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Donnelly whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest.
    "I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen," Mourdock said.

    I asked a young female friend of mine if she was going to vote early and she told me that she wasn't going to vote because it doesn't affect her life one way or another. I wonder if she is totally oblivious to the GOP's stance on women's rights. Makes my head spin.

    Oh, and yeah there are plenty of Christian Fundamentalist women here in the South that believe this crap. Not too long ago a female coffee shop owner earnestly informed me that women are not equal to men because they were created from one of Adam's ribs. Stunned at first, but saw the giant bible sitting on a table, I just replied, "uh-huh".

    And really it's fine if these folks want to believe in this insanity, but please do not cram it down my throat or empower any elected official to do so.

    20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. Nobody aborts more babies than god.

    so by his logic if his family gets gang raped, wife and daughter become pregnant and he gets his ass kicked and becomes a cripple its OK with him because "it is something that God intended to happen"

    Throw in a bunch of enligthenment era theologians and you have the root cause why so many "Christians" (evangelcials) have a f#cked understanding of the Scriptures........

    Short answer: yes, voters will vote for that doucher.

    I think we should drop him in the showers at the state penitentiary and let him experience god's intent first hand.

    To be fair to Richard Mourdock, his entire religion is based around the statutory rape of a young girl by a ghost.

    This kind of thinking is predictable.

    Wouldn't abortion clinics do the other 80%-ish of abortions?

    So..... what you're saying is that abortion providers provide most of the abortions?

    No, that would mean all pregnancies end in abortion, which as far as I know, they do not. At least until Blacky McIslam gets elected again, then all bets are off. All yur fetus r belong to us. :panic:

    I am always surprised how people are so shocked and reviled when a candidate says something like this. This is 100% the Republican Party platform. Any repub that says otherwise goes against the party platform, it would seem many would disagree when it comes to first hand statements but few have problems when it becomes the party line.

    disagree.

    i'm sure you can find plenty of republican voters who believe something should be done about the scourge of niglets rooting for white-funded teets, and the jungle of liberty must be pruned from time to time with the scarlet blood of whores.

    unwittingly, palin's shuck-n-jive remarks do feed a steady stream of fuel for this undercurrent

    I'm beginning to think that most of the Repub's would make great Sunni Mullahs.... and a few of them perhaps even Wahabist ones......
