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.

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.

My daughter (20) has already decided that if she has kids they will be adopted.  Too many kids that need good homes on the planet already!  I'm proud of her.

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.
