Angle Rejects Abortion For Rape Victims: "Sometimes God Has A Plan"
U.S. Senate nominee Sharron Angle (R-NV) has been trying to steer clear of unfriendly media in the hopes that her extreme views don't imperil her chances of getting to Washington...

~snip~

The problem is not so much with the media but with Angle's philosophy. She can avoid media outlets all she wants, but ultimately, her antiquated and extremist understanding of how society should operate will be exposed one way or another.

Angle was recently asked by Bill Manders, a conservative talk radio personality in Reno, if her anti-choice position also meant that she opposed abortion in cases of rape and incest. Angle replied that she was against abortion in all circumstances, adding that whatever happened to a woman that would compel her to seek an abortion, "God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives."

Manders: Is there any reason at all for an abortion?

Angle: Not in my book.

Manders: So, in other words, rape and incest would not be something?

Angle: You know, I'm a Christian and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.

1. So I suppose she wants them to pray...

2. If incest and rape are part of God's plan, then abortion is part of God's plan...

6. Actually incest is condoned by God, it's in the Bible...
Remember the story of Lot, who after God turned his wife into a pillar of salt, his two little daughters got him drunk and screwed him in a cave. According to 'God' he wanted Lot's 'seed' to be passed forward to complete the Biblical lineage with a son. Why didn't God have Lot's wife do that if he was all knowing and should have known to give Lot at least one son instead of two daughters, whoops! God isn't really all knowing is he?

And of course, since there were no other males on earth Eve had to have slept with her sons. Able was killed by Cain so Cain and Seth had sex with their mother, Eve. After Eve ate that apple she was kept very busy having sex with every male in her family. And from all that incest came the human race, if you believe the Bible.

So God believes in incest. But any woman or girl who is the victim of incest should be legally allowed to get an abortion. No female should ever have to keep the offspring of a rape or incest. It would be inhuman to force a woman to go through that trauma and relive that terrible event for the rest of her life. And NO 'loving' God would want one of their 'children' to be scarred for life because of a brutal act against their body.

Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 08:47 AM by Ozymanithrax
who gets boinked by their daddy or rapped by some idiot who wants to feel powerful. If God does that, then God also plans for abortions. What she is trying to say is that it is all God's plan.
If that is true, then abortions are God's plan, and doctors his high priests.

5. Someone needs to see if Ms. Angle has a pharmaceutical record.
Something tells me "God has a plan" doesn't factor when the flu is involved...

10. Nevada is a libertarian state
Government out of the uterus and out of my gun rack.

Government out of my bedroom (legal prostitution in many counties) and government out of my betting room (although gambling is regulated).

12. I wonder what Sharron would do if God "had a plan" for HER?
Four months hence (you know, when the ACTUAL election takes place), Reid wins reelection by 6 points.

16. This exposes the nonsensical beliefs of hyper-religious people.
As if we didn't already know that they're nuts. Rape as part of "God's plan". Wow. What other idiocy will spew from this woman's piehole before the election?

This loony tunes is too wacky even for most wingnuts.

Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 08:35 AM by Javaman
That means that sometimes god doesn't have a plan.

She's an idiot.

I always love how the religious fanatics conveniently conform their god to fit their own agenda.
