In this, the last post in this series, I had planned to take Mr. Mourdock’s position to its logical extreme (as distasteful as it is to me) as follows:
- If it was God’s will for a woman who was raped to become pregnant (this was the gist of Mr. Mourdock’s original statement) then
- It follows that it was God’s will for the woman to be raped then
- It follows that the rapist was doing God’s will so it does not seem fair that they should be punished (hey they were only doing God’s will)
I was planning to do this to show the ABSURDITY of the original statement but I have decided it is a waste my time because none of the people that are supporting Mr. Mourdock (the ones that I would be trying to influence) would be able to follow any logical train of thought.
So let’s end it this way. Mitt Romney selected Richard Mourdock as the only Senate Candidate that he made an ad for. When Mr. Mourdock made his outrageous statement, Mitt continued to back him and did not pull his ad. I think about this says more about Mitt Romney than Mr. Mourdock’s statement says about him. Think about this if you are even considering a vote for Mitt.
I am so glad this series of posts is over. Writing about people like Mr. Mourdock makes me so angry that I can barely contain myself. I look forward to celebrating his defeat on Tuesday (along with the defeat of his best buddy Mitt Romney).
