Here is the offending statement from Indiana Republican candidate for the Senate who won the primary against Richard Lugar and is now facing Democratic challenger Joe Donnelly in a debate.
|Richard Murdock (R)|
"He replied: “I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that’s something God intended to happen.”
Of course the Democrat challenger jumped on that stating his God that.... "he doesn't believe “my God, or any God, would intend that to happen.”How many gods are there Joe?? Murdock clarified that his statement acknowledged that only God can create life. So what's the beef here? Everyone agrees that rape is a horrible act of violence against a woman. No one is condoning or excusing the act of rape. When a woman is raped pregnancy sometimes occurs and sometimes does not occur.
So is God in control even during the times when horrible acts occur...yes!! So does life begin at conception.....yes!! So is God in control.....yes!! Can God bring something beautiful out of tragedy?? Yes!!! Ask the many babies conceived in rape. Are their lives precious....you bet!!
