When I asked for more comments, I didn't expect anything as insanely crazy as this one, about my wee Sarah Palin/Jesus pic:
"Most woman do not get pregnant from being raped because of the shock and if a woman does get pregnant then it is the will of God for the child to come to this earth and love is present during any conception." - Anonymous
Let's leave the horrible facts about rape to one side.
"Love is present during any conception".
On second thoughts, let's not leave the facts about rape to one side. Without emergency contraception, there is around a 15% chance of rape resulting in pregnancy amongst adolescents. So, according to our anonymous commentator, it's the will of God for around 15% of teenage rape victims to get pregnant.
Can you feel the infinite love?
I'd feel a lot angrier about this all if it wasn't for a wonderful line I read today at Freethinker.co.uk, from Dr Richard Harries, former Bishop of Oxford:
"...more than two-thirds of fertilised eggs are lost in nature... If each of these is really a person, that is, an eternal soul, it would lead to the absurd conclusion that heaven is mainly populated by people who have never been born."Yup, there go those pesky facts again, getting in the way of ignorant, bigotted, f__kwits.
But hey. I should and I do thank "anonymous" for stopping by. Remember, kids, every time you leave a comment, God spares a kitten...
Edited to clarify the 15% stat applies to adolescents
