Leno, The President and Missing the Point
Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock’s comments that pregnancies caused by rape are “something God intended to happen” echoed across the U.S. media and sent ripples through political circles ahead of the November 6 election.
I didn’t see it but recently the President was on Jay Leno and the conversation got around to a comment by Senator Richard Murdock concerning rape. Now I have to say I understand his sentiment, but would change at least one word. I would change “INTENDED” to “ALLOWED“.
Intended indicates that God wanted to bring about life in this manner. I do not believe that this is the case and it is not consistent with the nature of God as he has revealed himself.
Allowed indicates that although, it is not what God intended, due to the sinful and fallen world we live in, rape is a way children are brought into our world and God does indeed for know each child who is born REGARDLESS of HOW they are conceived.
Let’s see the Senators comment in context:
“Richard Murdock said: “I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God, and I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something God intended to happen.”
— Mourdock’s position and struggle is basic, how could a good God allow this horrible situation of rape to happen? Can a gift and triumph come from trauma? He seems to have struggled and decided that it indeed can happen, although he may not understand how or why it happens this way, only that it did. Did God ORIGINALLY intend for violent rape to be the method for our children to come into the world? Of course not, he is not saying that. The President and others are simply looking for a platform to gain a standing during the final moments of an election.
Here is what the President stated:
“I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas. Let me make a very simple proposition: rape is rape. It is a crime,” Obama said on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”
— Thank you for pointing out the obvious. Yes it is a Crime. So why are we Punishing the Child?
— Abortion is Abortion. It is murder and SHOULD BE A CRIME! It ends and Life and creates at the LEAST two victims!
He goes on to state that:
“This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, making decisions about women’s healthcare.”
— Last I checked, it takes two to create a child, how is it only a woman has a right to decide the fate of THEIR child in matters regarding the life of the child?
Sadly, Obama shows he has NO concept of God, Theology or Doctrine, I don’t like the wording “something God intended to happen” as if God is an accessory to the crime, however, this child was going to be a product of these to people. Was this God’s intended method, I don’t think so, but this child WAS meant to be.
— Then for him to even talk about Planned Parenthood as if it is an organization that HELPS women. Really? It is the biggest provider of legally sanctioned execution of women! Really sad!
