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.

Nicely put.  You are preaching to the choir. 

Hear!  Hear!  Why do you think I post so much to this site?  I am so alienated from my society I would really go mad if I did not know there are plenty of others out there just as outraged as I am.

I think his followers are happy to hear his extremist views.  These points of view were not spoken so loudly in past years.  They were thought too outrageous.  Now, with Santorum the holy speaking them, these extreme views seem more alowable and a little closer to mainstream.  Maybe a lot closer.

It's become more extremist. Back in the '90s most pro-life people shied away from saying there should not be a rape exception to abortion, and now they're all saying it.

It is totally scary that anyone who believes something so horrible and wretched like that could even come close to running for any position of power, let alone for President.  I just hope there's more than plenty of people out there who are wise enough and compassionate enough not to cast a ballot in favor of any monster like this!!!

Unfortunately, he represents the opinion of many voting Catholics and evangelicals.  They helped him win the caucus in Iowa.  I call their unlikely coalition "Cathevangelical."

Extremely sad but true.  Right-wing extremist like these always preach "morals," yet outrageous statements like this totally goes to show just how morally bankrupt all these clowns really are!

All Santorum has is his ideology. He clearly has no empathy for a woman who has been raped, nor the slightest understanding of the violation and emotional trauma associated with such an event ... and at that, I admit that, while I might attempt to understand what it might be like, I readily admit with no hesitance that I do not know, nor could I ever.

Yet Santorum blathers on, as though life über alles was the only value worth considering. What a dick.

My theory, he is Augustinian.  Wasn't that the saint who spend his youth as a rakehell, then had a sudden conversion (think Saul/Paul on the road to Damascus, suddenly realizing he could make more money as a preacher than he could as a thief)?  Santorum is reported to have a been a ladies' man in his youth, and no one thought he would become so obsessed with religion.  He is the type who actually inspires madmen to murder abortion providers.  He gives these oddball misfit motherfuckers legitimacy.  That is why Sam Harris won the debate with the Catholic Newsweek columnist on a webite: Harris took a position that resonated with me as a dry alcoholic: he portrayed well-meaning believers to the enablers in alcoholism.  They are co-dependent.

Next, the asshole will be saying that STDs are just a price a woman has to pay when she tempts a man into raping her, and that insurance companies and taxpayers shouldn't have to pay to treat them.  Of course, men will still be able to get their Viagra with absolutely no fuss from the moral police.  

This guy should be Bubba's prison bitch for a few months - see if he doesn't change his mind about rape at least.  If Bubba could then implant a bowling ball in Rick's colon, make him hold it in for a few months and then squeeze it out, slowly....and once it's out, force him to fork over the bowling ball's weight in gold every month for the next 18 years, without fail, just to show how much he appreciates Bubba's gift...hey, I can dream, can't I?

 

You know what they say, Dorris: if men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

[sigh] And so it goes....

A close female friend who died recently told me long ago that if men could get pregnant the matter would not even enter the political arena.  I think we should do a Kubrick on all "pro-choice" people and set them up in clinics where they are strapped down, an apparatus is attached to their eyes to hold the lids open, and they are given drops to magnify the images bombarded at them until they quit seeing "persons" in fetuses.  We have tried all else, why not science fiction.  As the world is rapidly becoming extinct, the last thing it needs is more human babies.
