Believe it or not, there are lots of fundagelical nutjobs who think God wants women who are raped to be forced to have babies: even if it will kill them, maim them, cripple them for life and so on.  This is because they think that babies are pure and innocent until birth, after which moment they become miserable scumbucket sinners (really, they do believe this). So, even if a woman is raped (or a child is raped, even), it is God’s will that that sinful female be forced to give birth to that sacred child, even if she dies in the process (yes, these whackadoodles think that, too).

It is bad enough that these fringe religious cultists hold and promulgate such hateful, venom-filled views, but it gets worse: a LOT worse. The Republican Party also believes this and is busily working to make this froot-loop theology (apologies to the froot-loop cereal people) the law of the land. Note that they are not bothering with stricter laws or greater punishment for the rapists: only stomping upon the women who are the victims of these horrific crimes.

Adding insult to injury, republicans of all stripes are upping their lunacy game of late: by trying to claim that there are different types of rape, that women can magically expel rapist sperm from their wombs, by saying that rapist sperm is a gift from God, and that none of this really matters anyway, because you should be required by Sharia Christian Law to carry the rapist’s baby to term even if it kills you.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky is not making this up, nor is he exaggerating one wee bit. Click the links below:

Republicans want to tell you, your mothers, grandmothers, sisters, cousins, wives, daughters, or any female of any age that God is OK with their being raped,  and that they are to bear the children of rapists. And they also don’t care if the woman is crippled or killed, nor will they pay a dime for her medical care. Finally, they don’t seem to be much concerned with the lousy, stinking, scumball criminal himself, since all they do is bellow like the bloated pachyderms they are about those women who are faking rape, or were asking for it, or how Original Sin makes females responsible for whatever heinous crime was committed against them.

This writer finds this to be the second craziest bunch of hogwash he has heard in many a year. In fact, there is only one thing that is crazier:

Women who know all of this and still vote for Republicans. Now, that, my friends, is barking madness of the highest order.
