85. I wouldn't say that IT is a bad thing, I would say that the persons and the people that he

has been hanging around that reinforced this kind of belief is a bad thing and are bad people.

I liken them to snake handlers and the ignoramus in Florida who wanted to burn the Qur'an. It's a form of ignorance that is self perpetuating and again, not of the original message. It took their perverted view to come to the conclusions that you are seeing today.

Do a lot of organized religions have issues? Absolutely. Does that mean that the message itself is bad? No.

What I have noticed about most denominations is that people will gravitate to what they feel most comfortable with. What will keep them in their comfort zone. Some people like to feel very guilty about things, thus they choose one denomination. Other people like to have a drink or two and will choose another denomination.

The individual who was saying that rape pregnancy is Gods plan is part of a mind set that enjoys control. Be it control over his/her family, members of their congregation, or parts of society as a whole. At some point in their lives they took a right when they should have taken a left and compartmentalized their minds to believe this way. I seriously doubt that they themselves would enjoy the edicts that they pass down to be enacted upon them.
