Rape and Incest Impregnation All God’s Plan, Claims Senate Candidate Sharron Angle

29 06 2010

In an segment that has gone unnoticed since it first aired, the Tea Party-backed candidate told the Bill Manders show — a favorable platform for Republican candidates — that she opposed abortion even in cases of rape and incest. A pregnancy under those circumstances, she said, was “God’s plan.”

Hell of a plan.

Really. It’s all just too mean-spiritedly, dysfunctionally absurd and makes me much less likely to accept common ground even when it’s legit, with any religious folk who don’t take pains to distance themselves from it —

I honestly don’t give a shit what christians believe. The problem is that they keep trying to shove it down our throats and force us all to accept their sinful and evil ideas and to live by their stone age scriptures.

How is it 2010 and we still have to pretend that these people have any validity when it comes to making civil law? If they want to believe and base their lives on a book of nonsense then fine, but it’s long past the time when it should have been considered okay for them to effect civil policy in any way shape or form if they attempt even a little to use their imaginary friend in the sky as a guide or try to suggest that anyone else should be forced to.

Also, and because they love to bring it up, I don’t care how they view the founding fathers or the constitution or whether or not they think Washington and Jefferson are rolling over in their graves. I don’t need to worry too damn much about what a bunch of misogynistic slave traders might think when their nearly three hundred year old views are juxtaposed against what a modern and truly enlightened populace is able to see as right and moral.

Finally, to suggest that forcing women to carry the product of rape and/or incest is basically saying that their god is okay with rape and incest. There really isn’t another reasonable way to view this, but given how christians operate they’ll spin the shit out of it like a sixteen year old with too much car.

Here’s something else about Angle, hmmm:

Nevadans have the option of checking the box for “none of these candidates.” Ralston says he thinks that in this election, that choice could get a record high vote.

Suppose that happened. Would Nevada then get only one senator (its other one) for the next six years? And then would the US Senate officially have but 99?

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again… I can’t believe a word of that shite, but even if, when I die, I do end up in front of the xian god itself, who shows me incontrovertible proof that the bible was 100% spot-on accurate, and that all that crap the fundies spew is 100% cool with him/her/it, I will not bow a knee and worship such a sick, sadistic rat-bastard.

Gee, I wonder what she really thinks. 🙂

Remember this isn’t about private worship but public policy, right here in our (formerly) secular modern state. Sharron Angle and her ilk demand the opposite of each citizen’s religious freedom, and they aren’t just shooting off their mouths in a letter to the editor or on a blog. They’ve amassed the terrifying power to impose just that — look at SCOTUS already. Angle isn’t isolated, she’s lamestream as Sarah Palin would say (she who refused while in office to help victimized girls in Alaska with a bit of funding for rape exam kits. God wanted them to suffer without justice, apparently.)

These are anti-American Americans wrapped in a false flag, literally agents of government conspiring to take control and rule us all unconstitutionally, via fear of their particular religious dogma. (How is THAT small government or libertarianism btw?? It’s much more akin to the Taliban.)

Along the same line imo:

The Secular Coalition for America. . .heralded the bill’s introduction as a positive step toward ending religious privilege in policy affecting and harming children.

Many religious organizations and leaders—such as James Dobson of Focus on the Family who has made a handsome living in part by selling books on using corporal punishment on children—believe that the Bible requires them to employ corporal punishment to discipline children.

See also:

. . .surrender of the democratic process to the authority of the Christian Bible, are rampant.

. . .What are these laws and Biblical principles that are being proposed? Do they have a formula to solve the economic crisis?
. . .There is nothing close to a practical answer in the Bible that could even begin to address our global challenges, unless we’re finally ready to turn over the money changers’ tables and feed the masses.

Is there something in the Bible that can help bring our troops home from Afghanistan? The biblical plans for that area don’t include peace. . . . America needs to move forward, not back to the Dark Ages.

Audrey, Sam et al — seen Tea Party Jesus yet? Sharron Angle’s comments above are among those cartooned as coming out of Jesus’ lips in beatific settings, to illustrate graphically just how Christian they sound. Not.

Yes… saw Tea Party Jesus the other day. The entry for June 30 particularly riled me, but not nearly as much as reading the linked source page which details how Glenn Beck called a colleagues wife and made fun of her/them in regards to her recent miscarrige. I wanted to puke, but Beck isn’t worthy of my vomit.

I started to write “No, he couldn’t have” but then I remembered who you were talking about.

this is so horrible it made me feel queasy 😦

i just want to say to all of you – dont give up on religion, or should i say religious people! >< my family is fairly devout – me less so – and it's always been a strict diet of love, forgiveness, understanding, all the things that I'm pretty sure Jesus is SUPPOSED to stand for? I dont understand the reasoning here. I have a close friend who was raped and got pregnant, I cant imagine what it would have done to her if someone had suggested that it was "god's plan"

all that is rubbish anyway. what happened to free will? the whole point was that god sat back to let humanity make its own mistakes, for better or worse. these politicians are too bright to have to same straightforward cut-and-paste view of the Bible that some of their voters have. They're just trying to be political and bringing rape into politics always makes my blood boil anyway.

Sorry for the rant but this really touched a nerve I suppose!

Florida isn’t immune from oppressive anti-woman, unAmerican ideas seeking the power to make the rest of us submit to their god’s plan any way they interpret it. Daniel Webster isn’t some tea-party upstart but the longest serving legislator in state history, almost 30 years — a Baptist homeschool dad of six, he rose to be the first GOP speaker of the house since Reconstruction and then senate majority leader, finally term limited out. The main committee room in the House is named in his honor. He played a leading role in turning Terri Schiavo into that tragic circus of church-state overreach.

So now he’s running to unseat Alan Grayson from Congress and be part of the new GOP “Pledge” to govern the whole country under his god’s plan:
