“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically.Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican.
Yeah, you know, every once in a while somebody comes along and provides the kind of vicious clarity this party really needs in communicating its worldview. No messing around, here. No opaque language or weasel words. It’s refreshing.
What an unredeemable monster. What kind of obliviously nasty fucker do you have to be to say to an audience of people ANY OF WHOM may have a disabled or challenged child that it’s their fault for having an abortion or otherwise being whores? Why kind of horrifying God do you worship, that he rains down hellfire upon your innocent children, for some wrong you’ve committed? I get that about half the Old Testament was Yahweh being a total schmuck, but I think even Job would find this a bridge too far.
I have news for this asshole. Everybody who’s ever had a child who had anything different from a textbook conception, easy-peasy delivery, and total typical physical and mental condition questions whether that child’s problems are their fault. For something they did, or thought about doing, for drinking coffee or not drinking coffee or driving too fast or not breastfeeding or whatever. EVERYBODY. Childless whore, sure, but I know a lot of parents, and in the dark hours they all wonder if they’re fucking up their kids on some level, somehow.
SO THANKS FOR HELPING, in reinforcing the message that they’re at fault. And by the by, how does this explain the phenomenon of special needs children born to those virtuous girls who haven’t offended God by having an abortion? Did they commit some other sin? How else did they deserve their children’s fate?
I really can’t fathom living in the world this guy’s living in, watched over by the God in whom he believes. I can’t imagine what it’s like there, always under threat. Nature’s vengeance would be the least of my worries.
