Oh, trust me, Greg.  I am sure their answer would be that their god made those babies to be put up for adoption for those who can't have children.  BTW, that is NOT god's fault if you cannot have children.  Oh, but if  you end up going in vitro and are pregnant with six embryos, THAT was god's plan.

Sorry if I just pushed the button to make your head explode...

So let me get this straight:

God abhors sexual violence, but if it happens (because of free will) god is just fine with using the opportunity to create a life that will be a constant, painful reminder to the victim?

My head's gonna 'splode.

*It is about their god.  I love how he is answering for his god too.
First, he doesn't "think" god wants rape, then, he is "absolutely
confident" about his god's stance on rape.  WTF????*


Still, Mourdock defended himself again Wednesday morning, declaring in a
press conference in Indiana, "I don't think God wants rape."

"I believe life is precious. I believe that to the marrow of my bones. I
believe that life itself is the greatest gift that God can give us,"
Mourdock said, denying that he meant in any way that God wants women
assaulted.

"I absolutely abhor violence. I abhor any kind of sexual violence. I abhor
rape. And I am absolutely confident, as I stand here, that the God that I
worship abhors violence, abhors sexual violence, and abhors rape," he said.

It isn't a pro-life stance though that is certainly part of the equation.
It really goes back to the Calvinist and even RCC ideas about
predestination, omniscience, and of course "God's Plan". The RCC has
opposed all methods of birth control except for abstinence and rhythm
because all else is an artificial attempt to thwart God's Will which would
of course upset "God's Plan.  The Calvinist view is that God knows
everything and has pre-planned everything--and I do mean EVERYTHING--so
therefore, even a rape-induced pregnancy must by definition be part of
God's Plan and therefore the life that results is as sacred as that which
comes from two people in love and married and consenting!  Obviously, there
are logical contradictions and fatal flaws with this ideology, but that's
what these folks believe!!!

 I find the uproar over this rather interesting, as it exposes the
hypocritical, political maneuverings of the pro-life crowd. Mourdock's
stance is really the logical conclusion drawn from the pro-life assumption,
namely that a fetus is a human life as valid as any of the rest of us who
are walking around talking about this. If that's the assumption, than it
shouldn't matter where that life came from. I would love to hear so-called
moderate pro-lifers explain how rape or incest justifies murder. The fact
is that they need to make the rape or incest exception to have a chance
with women voters. But it doesn't follow logically from a pro-life stance.
