Heavily armed pastor presses Beto O'Rourke on abortion and "great men" who are "the product of rape"

Jon Skolnik - Yesterday 10:33 AM

A Texas man who identified himself as a preacher, armed with a semiautomatic assault rifle and pistol, confronted gubernatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke during a Saturday campaign event and demanded that the Democrat answer whether he "believed in a woman's right to choose," claiming that there are "great" men who are the "product of rape."

The man, a self-proclaimed "minister of the gospel," approached O'Rourke in the middle of a town hall in Hemphill, where the preacher berated the candidate with a barrage of questions about abortion and religion.
"How do we deal with the murder of the unborn for anything other than to save a woman's life?" the man asked, adding that there are "great men of god who are the product of rape."

O'Rourke responded by thanking the man for making the inquiry "in good faith" and argued that they weren't "going to change each other's minds on some of these very basic definitions."

"This decision is best made by the woman, who understands better than anyone else the nature of her pregnancy, the complications it might endure, any other issue that is unique and personal and private as her," O'Rourke said, noting that "more rapes committed in this state than any other state of the union."

3. Since good people have been born to women who were raped,

I guess God is okay with rape, right?

11. Read the Bible

Here's a quick rundown of 25 Bible verses on rape

tl;dr
-- If it's inside the city limits, you need to kill them both (stoning, natch) cause the victim didn't scream loud enough. If it's outside the city limits, the victim should marry her attacker.
Whether that's pro- or anti-rape is a question of how you feel about the institution of marriage

13. Oh yeah, forgot about the Bible.

Grab something, knock her in the head and drag her off to your cave.

14. Of course Deuteronomy always puts it poetically

Deuteronomy 21:10-14


“When you go out to war against your enemies, and the Lord your God gives them into your hand and you take them captive, and you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you desire to take her to be your wife, and you bring her home to your house, she shall shave her head and pare her nails. And she shall take off the clothes in which she was captured and shall remain in your house and lament her father and her mother a full month. After that you may go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife. But if you no longer delight in her, you shall let her go where she wants. But you shall not sell her for money, nor shall you treat her as a slave, since you have humiliated her"
.

15. I think it's really sweet that God won't let you

treat her as a slave or sell her, at least not sell her for money. Maybe you could trade her for a good camel. Makes God seem kind of sentimental, doesn't it?

5. For each putative "great" "product of rape"

there were millions of innocent victims of violent sexual assault who might have been “great” had they not been traumatized, tortured, and silenced by their ordeals.

They really, really hate women.

6. I'll bet most products of rape ....

....do not even know they were a product of rape. That is not something that people discuss freely.

And yeah, give me some names.

9. I wish I could be more like Beto

He and Pete Buttigieg. They are always so calm and in control.

With a guy like that, I fear my temper would get the best of me. That’s why I could never go into politics. I’m afraid I would scalp someone.

10. Dude needs to work on his "vicar of Christ" routine

It's been awhile since I've read the gospels, but I'm pretty sure I don't remember running across anything like Jesus's Sermon at the Firing Range.
