Santorum: Children of Rape Victims Are "Gifts of God"

Let's see.  A woman is taken against her will and does not want to have a stranger/nephew/brother's baby and Santorum says the baby is "a gift from God."  It is unbelievable that he does not see the lack of logic in this conclusion.  It would make babies of rape victims the price a woman has to pay just for being a sex object to a goon.  If Santorum worships a good God, that deity would not allow the woman to be raped in the first place.  And before Santorum can argue that the rapist was given freedom of will by this God, the question arises, why didn't the all powerful good God make sure that when a man exercises that freedom of will, he does the right thing.

If justice always truly prevailed, he would be Bubba's bitch for a good while!  Yes, I wish he really could smell what he's shoveling, along with all his other cronies.

Dorris, write it as a screenplay.  What a brilliant idea!  I can just see that squealing loser being buttfucked by a seven foot tall man of color, although the Mormon in the race would make a better bitch in that event: Mitt's church once held black folk lesser than apes in Africa; now they have switched their focus to queer people, attempting to deny us our Gaud given -- no, not Gaud given, but "Special Rights."  They love to quote that Creator part of the Declaration but ignore that "all men" means all women and all LGBT people.  Doesn't Gaud love diversity?  He must, there is such infinite variety in Nature. 

But that bowling ball part had me rolling on the floor.  On the other hand, someone should inquire of Sanatarium's ties to the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.  What does he say when confronted with the fact that the Vatican has been obstructing justice for decades hiding the pedophile priests, hiding behind a treaty agreement giving the old Nazi Pop and his whole bunch of miscreants diplomatic immunity.  But Rumney's three million a year contribution to the Mormon Church funded the Prop 8 rewriting the California Constitution to ban same sex marriage.

I don't even have to use my imagination much - with idiots like Santorum, the shit pretty much writes itself.  These halfwit conservative religiotards are just begging to be bashed; it would be even more funny if they didn't have the ability to seriously fuck up our country. Half the time I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or tear my hair out when I hear what comes out of the members of the Church of The Swinging Dicks (of whom Santorum is a member in good standing).

He is so stupid.:(

Santorum san-to-rum antorums torumsan orumsant rumsantor umsantoru msantoru

the ant on rum escaped the insane asylum

But yeah, torum-san is CrAzY I hope the crips and the bloods give him a taste of his own pro-rape message. Oh and monsantorum after your pounding in more ways than one, just remember it was gods will for you.

ok enough blatherskite.

Yes, Rick's a Real Family Man!  This is how he shows it - he tells women to go ahead and pop out their rapists' spawn because God wants them to.  Yeah, the same God who dared Abraham to take a knife to his son just to see if he'd really do it.  Rick and his God want women to raise the children of rape, presumably telling them as they're growing up all about the wonderful miracle of their conception and birth.  Gotta wonder what it's gonna do to a kid whose mom says something like, "Oh - your dad? Never knew the guy - but boy, did he want to know me!  Chased me down the jogging path for nearly a mile before he got that knife to my throat and my pants down!  What a champ!  And now you're here to remind me of that wonderful romp every time I look at you!"  Yeah, that's going to be a happy, well-adjusted child of God.

There's a certain perverse consistency to Santorum's view.  In his view, probably Alzheimer's and severe birth defects are also "gifts from God",  because they teach the afflicted humility and the caregivers generosity.  Having your house burn down - hey, another gift, for it teaches the transience of all material things.  Lose your job?  You got it - one more gift, this time teaching resilience and eschewal of the sin of pride.  Every evil, however heinous or vile, becomes a "gift of God", since presumably God is omnipresent and in control, and every such evil is therefore meted out for a "purpose" that we poor benighted mud-creatures could not fathom.  The beauty of this world-view is that it's so hermetically self-justifying. 

What I find both whimsical and scary is that most people fail to see the remarkable parallel between militant Christian fundamentalism and militant Muslim fundamentalism.  Get Santorum to grow a beard, put a turban on him, teach him Arabic, transport him to a mosque in Yemen, and bingo!  You got yourself a radical cleric... minus, perhaps, any theological knowledge.

By that logic (almost, if any logic be found in these geeks at all) a gay or lesbian child should be a "gift from God," but obviously this is not the case.  Instead, they point to Leviticus and the ravings of the insane Saul-Paul of Tarsus and claim that same sex orientation (my word, not theirs) is specifically excluded from this bounty.  (And hey, even Sarah Palin gets into it, saying her Down's syndrome child is a GFG.) If gays and lesbians are not gifts from God why did He send them to their parents in the first place.  Again, we see an O.T. deity characterized as much by his contradictions and his arbitrary decisions as by sound, well-considered judgment.  We see not a fair and impartial judge but an axe-grinding, mischievous, completely irresponsible fiend.

You are not alone is seeing the Jihadist parallel.  The evangelical is the other side of a coin that shows a Wahhabist fanatic, the difference being mainly in such things as use of alcholic beverages and other dietary and behavioral proscriptions.  That is because Judeo-Christian morality is mostly derived from the same sources, including Abrahamic law.  But there are secular Islamic nations just as there is the Judeo-Christian United States, where reformed Jews, no longer afraid of "God" (trichinosis) now that they've acquired the scientific advancement called a refrigerator, even eat -- oh, shudder!  Heaven forbid! -- pork.  Now that the evangelical bigot has been identified as the local equivalent of a Wahhabist, the monitors of far right wing activity, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, have put several such organizations on their list of "Hate Groups."  These include the rabidly anti-gay Family Research Council, which joined the Mormon Church in funding a California constitutional amendment to make same sex marriage unconstitutional.  What should be unconstitutional is irrational belief.

I suspect that in Santorum's view, Santorum is a gift from god.

Well, c'mon now folks. After all, Santorum's beloved Catholic Church does have its high moral principles.  I mean, look at their high level of morality recently in Brazil. The doctors who performed an abortion on a pregnant 9 year old victim of incestuous rape were excommunicated, along with the girl's mother who made her available for the procedure. You see, according to medical "science," her uterus was too small to carry one child, let alone the twins she was impregnated with.  But really, now.  That's just "science," and we all know "science" (yuk) doesn't have all the answers like the one True Holy and Apostolic Catholic Church, right?  Exommunicate the rapist? Wellllllllll............, not so much. And why? According to Santorum's logic, daddy give his 9 year "gifts from God."

And this sick, twisted fuck wants to hold the same office as Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt.

Now, Pat, tell us what you really think of Santorum.  :-)))  I am wondering, was the rapist father a gift from God?

Considering how many sex crimes are committed by clergy on a regular basis, this may be a way for them to have more offspring.  Especially baptists.
