Whilst Catholics get their souls scrubbed in confession, evangelicals maintain that if they just say they're sorry, their transgression is "under the blood" and it's time to move on. That was basically the theme of GOP US Rep. and Senate candidate Todd Akin's commentary on Mike Huckabee's radio show Sunday night. Akin apologized (?!) for his bizarre and offensive comment about "legitimate" rape with this statement, to Huckabee: "I was talking about forcible rape, and that was absolutely the wrong word." (So, uh "forcible rape" is different from "legitimate" rape, how?) Huckabee, BTW, endorsed and supported Akin's candidacy and for that Akin is grateful. During the warm Christian brotherizing that went on during the interview, Huckabee seemed to validate the Sharon Angle philosophy that being forced to give birth, after a rape, is making lemonade out of lemons (Be happy ladies, you're gonna be a mommy). Huckabee noted that horrible rapes have created "wonderful human beings." Words fail...
If God didn’t like it, it wouldn’t happen.
He will be continually subjected to forcible rape….until he produces one of those wonderful human beings he espouses.
Such lunacy deserves a just reward!
This is the problem with religious fanatics making laws. They basically believe that God makes magical things happen. So it becomes easy to believe something incredibly magical and stupid like Akin’s rape-doesn’t-cause-pregancy idea.
