Pappas: To be perfectly honest, I've always felt that anyone who claims to be "pro-life" because "life begins at conception", yet supports exceptions for race/incest/health of the mother, to be the definition of hypocritical.
MikeMc: Just a heads-up Farkers, I'm calling dibs on "Republican Rape Babies" for a band name.
zedster: Do we have free will or are you a believe in predestination?, this is not a hard question
evaned: This I actually agree with [...] But no, I can't recall any politician making a statement like that. (Not that I necessarily would have if someone did.)
intelligent comment below: ilambiquated: intelligent comment below: So far that's 3 things in about 4,000 yearsYou said constantly getting pissed offYou haven't read the bible.What else is there?
vernonFL: I don't see what the big deal is.Have you read the Bible? The God that these people worship is all about rape.
Diogenes: We should decriminalize rape. The poor men we're prosecuting are just fulfilling God's will.Do you punish people who give you gifts?
Corvus: Ok anyone believes this shiat can someone explain how God meant for the rape to happen but has no control over the abortion?Free will covers abortions but not raping?
Weaver95: Lando Lincoln: The fact that the GOP still exists has forced me to believe that God really isn't paying attention to us.or that the god(s) the Republicans worship isn't the Christian one.
chuckufarlie: Sure but even in the new Testament he had a son and let him be tortured to death for some reason that still was never made clear to me.
WorldCitizen: So does God have a pre-set agenda of who will fark who to make babies, and if they don't naturally hook up it moves to rape to get that baby made?
FrailChild: Same liberals from 50 years ago. Same tired old inflammatory rape rhetoric...
Techhell: I'm thinking that by 2024, there won't be enough Americans capable of this sort of double-think to vote Republican. Now if the US can keep the Republicans from realizing this until 2025, there's a good chance that the USA might not eat itself.
feffer: WorldCitizen: So does God have a pre-set agenda of who will fark who to make babies, and if they don't naturally hook up it moves to rape to get that baby made?A member of my extended family told me this today. If a woman gets raped and pregnant it's because the rapist rejected Jesus earlier in life. If he hadn't rejected Jesus then the couple would have fallen in love and gotten married and that exact baby still would have been born.I asked him why teen pregnancy is considered to be a bad thing then, since God wanted that exact baby to be born at that exact time, and he didn't have an answer.
FrailChild: Same liberals from 50 years ago. Same tired old inflammatory rape rhetoric..."I'm Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought 'legal' child killing to America."I was persuaded by feminist attorneys to lie; to say that I was raped, and needed an abortion. It was all a lie."Since then, over 50 million babies have been murdered. I will take this burden to my grave."Please, don't follow in my mistakes. DO NOT vote for Barack Obama. He murders babies."http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/jane-roe-of-roe-v.-wade-airs-anti-ob a ma-ad-in-florida
Weaver95: leaving aside for a moment the philosophical implications of believing in a god that condones violent acts against his followers...did Mourdock really intend that press conference to succeed? c'mon man...I was watching it. he tried to say that his words were 'twisted' against him. while i'm sure that you could make that case in other circumstances the record seems pretty clear: he kinda/sorta seems to believe that rape babies happen because it's god's will and his press conference didn't really clear any of that up.
Mugato: Fart_Machine: Mugato: intelligent comment below: I don't see where he is constantly getting pissed off and punishing them but I guess if you believe it rains tomorrow because God's angry then you can blame everything on himWhat do you call the Flood? The plagues of Egypt? Adam and Eve? That's all the Bible is, God being pissed and punishing people.Old Testament God was kind of a jerk.Sure but even in the new Testament he had a son and let him be tortured to death for some reason that still was never made clear to me.
WorldCitizen: kg2095: Weaver95: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: I prefer to hang out with the heathens instead of the pagans.Pagan community has too many drama llamas.I haven't actually seen any issues among the pagans I know in my local area. they seem more laid back than the evangelical Christians.Well that wouldn't be hard would it?One of my best friends is a pagan. He's about as laid back and good of a human being as one can get.
Karma Curmudgeon: WWJR?
BraveNewCheneyWorld: nekulor: Why is Conservative God such a dick?Because it's a bunch of assholes telling others what god thinks, instead of reiterating any teachings of examples of god, such as Jesus. This is the perfect example of a wolf in christian clothing, which should not reflect on christians as a whole, as this sort of thing typically does on fark.
elchip: When a rapist gives you lemons, make lemonade.
HeartBurnKid: dletter: swaniefrmreddeer: So god intended for the rape victim to conceive, then he must have wanted her to be raped in the first place. Therefor god wants women to get rape-raped.You forget, "God" is responsible for anything that they do want to have happen, and "Satan" or something else outside of God's control is responsible for the other parts. So, Satan raped the person, and God just decided to make it a little better, because kids always make everything better!It is all part of the "Making things up from inferences as I go along to fit my needs" bible study.You know, I'll never understand how Christians think of themselves as monotheists. So many of them ascribe so much power and control to Satan that he must be considered a secondary deity of some sort.
Ricardo Klement: That's what I understood him to mean the first time.
dletter: That is interesting, never really thought about it that way, I'll have to ask next time I am in a group how they consider that being not "monotheistic", I mean, Satan seems to have some pretty "God-like" powers.
hinten: Oh, and thank you Fark for teaching me something new today. It does happen every now and then.From The Ayn Rand Letter, Volume IV, Number 2, November-December 1975:Now I want to give you a brief indication of the kinds of issues that are coming up, on which you might want to know my views.1. The Presidential election of 1976. I urge you, as emphatically as I can, not to support the candidacy of Ronald Reagan. I urge you not to work for or advocate his nomination, and not to vote for him. My reasons are as follows: Mr. Reagan is not a champion of capitalism, but a conservative in the worst sense of that word-i.e., an advocate of a mixed economy with government controls slanted in favor of business rather than labor (which, philosophically, is as untenable a position as one could choose-see Fred Kinnan in Atlas Shrugged, pp. 541-2). This description applies in various degrees to most Republican politicians, but most of them preserve some respect for the rights of the individual. Mr. Reagan does not: he opposes the right to abortion.
BraveNewCheneyWorld: Gosh darn it, you're just so cute. Yep, the rules Jesus laid out have no relevance for our lives..it's just so typical for farkers who hate the possibility that there's a god and he might want you to live in a way that you don't feel like living it. Just one universe, where the laws just happened to work out to have the ability to form complex life.. and it's entirely bullshiat that there was an intelligence behind it. Chances are, you don't know much about physics.. because the odds against this whole thing happening are beyond staggering.Please feel free to trot out the "well if it wasn't perfect for forming life, then life wouldn't be there to realize it" derp, because it is only one single universe after all, and the odds are infinitely against you.
hinten: (which, philosophically, is as untenable a position as one could choose-see Fred Kinnan in Atlas Shrugged, pp. 541-2).
TalenLee: dletter: That is interesting, never really thought about it that way, I'll have to ask next time I am in a group how they consider that being not "monotheistic", I mean, Satan seems to have some pretty "God-like" powers.Read Job. Satan is basically God's sting operative.
